After much reflection, I purchased an E-M1 a couple days ago from an ad on Craigslist. (Funny that the rumor of the E-M1mk2 came out the day after!) My new-to-me E-M1 looks like new displaying only 3,400 on the shutter count. The trigger for the purchase was really this article: Better Family Photos: The Joys Of Owning An Olympus E-M1 (firmware v4.0) which highlighted some of my wishes owning the E-M5: - better C-AF - anti-shock improvements (the Panny 45-175 was terrible on the E-M5) Now that I have spent a couple of days with it, I am finding that some improvements matter more than I thought they would: - ergonomics (wow, everything you can wish for is at your fingertip) - improved EVF - higher max shutter speed, tethered shooting, WiFi, in-camera HDR, better responsiveness After owning the E-M5 since it came out, I am finding myself re-learning how to use an Oly. Thanks to all the great resources, I have made much headway getting there. It has not been a simple process since the firmware updates have made so many improvements over the lifetime of the E-M1 that some of the information is either stale or actually misleading. Talking about improvements, I am impressed that Olympus released so many new features that have made the E-M1 much more future-proof than other OM-D or PEN cameras. Kudos to them for that. Their flagship product has been a true flagship.
