Hi, I just got my silver body yesterday and thought I would just share some of my brief impressions on it. I'll try not to repeat what others have already said. I have to say this is my first Olympus camera. I was using the GF1, and then a GH2. I sold the GH2 in the beginning of January anticipating that the GH3 or a new Olympus camera with a viewfinder would come out. Please correct me if my findings are not correct as the camera is still pretty new to me. Pros: 1. It is a very well built camera, feels solid when holding it. The silver body looks amazing with pretty much all my lens. 2. I like how you can choose between HFPS (9 frames) and a LFPS (3-4 frames). 3. The EVF although smaller than my GH2 looks pretty nice. At first I was very worried about going back to a smaller magnification but the color from the evf is colorful and vibrant. I do wish is bigger though. Cons: 1. I have small hands and I do feel the EM5 is a bit too small. I don't want to get the battery grip, but seems like you can't just get the normal grip without getting the battery one. Is basically same size as my GF1, but my GF1 with a case feels very comfortable to hold. I don't really want to get a case for the EM-5 either as it is a gorgeous looking camera as is. It is not that bad using the primes on it, but using the Voigtlander 25mm is a bit tiring after holding it a while. 2. Missing dial for multiple exposure shot and missing custom C1, C2, etc. I kind of like the GF1, and GH2 dial that allow me to choose single shot, multiple shot, and multiple exposure shot. EM5 allows you to map a button which allows you to choose between HFPS, LFPS, timer, but just missing multiple exposure. With gakuranman's guide, I did what he suggested by mapping Fn1 to a MySet which is set to multiple exposure. What is wierd is that you have to hold on to Fn1 to activate it. It feels uncomfortable pressing fn1 and then pressing the shutter button together to get multiple exposure. It would be nicer if pressing fn1 will activate MySet, and pressing it again will go back to the original. 3. I don't think you can adjust the iso for video which sucks. Very very limited options for video. 4. I think it takes 2 button press to get to a magnify view versus just 1 button press on the GH2 and GF1. I definitely need to use more of it to see if the handling improves. It is certainly a very nice camera but I think I would be happier if I have a GH3 + EM5. For now I must say I enjoy the handling and control of the GH2 more.
