    I ordered an OMD from Best Buy today!!! They did a really good price match with the 12-50 lens. They even paid for the two day shipping. I'm very much looking forward to trying out an MFT that should rival my 7D. I'll not get rid of the Canon because I take pics of birds in flight and air shows, but for lots of other things I'm looking forward to giving it a go. :biggrin:

    Congrats I think you will enjoy the decrease in size and weight a lot over the good old 7d.

    I went from a 7D to an EM-5. I'm VERY happy.

    My wife knows better. Every time I go smaller with something she says I wind up wanting to spend more money....like my surround speakers that went from very big to very small. I thought I would NEVER hear the end of that one!:eek:

    I'm still gonna keep it!:biggrin:

    I too just ordered an E-M5 yesterday from Best Buy. Also with the 12-50mm. Same deal, free 2 day shipping. Should arrive early next week. I'm coming from a Nikon D7000.

    I got mine from an Adorama price match of $1149. If you have anything better I would appreciate knowing as we have 30 days for someone else to lower the price so we can price match again.

    Should be receiving my E-M5 tomorrow.. coming from an X100 which I had a love/hate relationship with. If the E-M5 doesn't work out I'm going back to film.

    The new X100S looks great! most of the reviews show fuji have fixed all the problems in X100, it's worth to take a look.:rolleyes:

    My OM-D is my third m43 body, and thus far my favourite — the feel, the look, fast AF and great IBIS. Enjoy.

    Yea - aircraft may move fast, but not generally towards/away from the spectators (or if so at a distance). I'd be surprised if it taxes the AF beyond its limits. Sports would be a totally different issue...

    How about panning right on the runway?

    CRAP!!! I missed the UPS guy today and won't be home again tomorrow. They now have instructions to leave it at the UPS store half a mile away so I can get it, no matter what.

    I got my camera today. Tomorrow I will spend the day learning. My only problem is they sent the silver and I thought I ordered black. It looks great, but I'm not so sure that the grip will look so good on the silver body.

    If you aren't going to be happy with the silver, send it back. I know that would be tough to do since you finally got it but remember you're going to have it for a few years (most likely,) so a few more days wait for what you really want isn't much in the overall scheme of things. I think they look great in either color and when I ordered mine black is all that was available so I went with it.

    I sold off my Canon 40D kit a few months ago and went with the EM5 and I've never looked back. Best decision I've made since I bought my 10D over 9 years ago.
