    Hi Everybody,
    I was wandering after some researches into this forum, if someone has an experience of the E-M5 PRO KIT ? http://www.olympus-global.com/en/news/2014a/nr140129em5e.jsp
    Any significant update built and fonctions ? I'm not very fond of the form factor of the E-M1 so I was looking for this model.
    Many thanks

    The changes seem essentially cosmetic, but I'd beinterested to hear opinions from owners.

    I think the only pro part is the 12-40 it's paired with, otherwise cosmetics seem to be the only difference.

    I also think they have tougher paint (flakes)


    Ok, but I have a solution. You take my E-M5 and give me your E-M1 :) 

    (I just put on a grip on it to make it feel like the E-M1)


    How come you don't like the form factor, the grip?

    I don't have E-M1 (not yet) :smile:
    I tried the E-M1 and I'm not convinced, so...

    The 2 are exactly the same spec beside the cosmetic changes....

    Aha ok. I realized a benefit having the grip. On travelling I can remove it to make it small again but at home it's nice with grip on.

    Take a look at the E-M10 also, almost like the E-M5 but cheaper

    Sounds like a black E-M5 with the silver's grip wrapping...the one on the original black one has a scratchy feeling. I have both, and I prefer the feel of the silver grip.
