Awesome camera it packs a punch for its size

published

I have switched to Micro 4/3 for work use and the E-M5 will handle most jobs at ease. I shoot a lot of product indoors with studio lights and also outdoor architectural work. The small size makes it easy to transport and carry but you do get the occasional heckler that thinks bigger is better. Yes I agree the kit lenses are not the best, try the fast primes 45mm F1.8 or 12mm 2.0 and you will be pleasantly surprised. The pro lens from the E-M1 release is also great but could make the E-M5 a bit harder to hold if you don't have the battery grip.
The retro design, size and portability. It is well built and feels solid. Plenty of lenses to choose from now for Micro 4/3 systems.
The grip could be difficult for people with bigger hands.

At the time of it's release, your OMD was the fastest focusing camera in production in the world. If you are have issues in low light I would think you have a problem with your camera. They should be lighting fast in low light compared to a 650D.

Hi Nick. It is fast in adequate light only as it needs to see contrast to be able to focus. low light, no joy unless using one of the fast lenses or a decent flash. Cheers

Thanks for your thorough and candid review. I have an Olympus PL after having had Pentax, Canon, Nikon SLRs and a Nikon DSLR (with a 50mm f1.8). Thinking about another DSLR and this is on the list (of course).
