    One of my favorite features! I use it with some older telephoto primes and absolutely nail the focus.

    I've had my E-M5 for 2 months now and couldn't be happier. The only thing the E-M1 offers (that I can think of in my limited knowledge) that I miss is focus peaking. Otherwise, I love my E-M5.

    Can't wait to see some pics. :)

    Love my E-M5 as well. If you like to do macro work the Olympus 60mm macro is a fantastic lens. It is one of the best macro lenses I have had.

    Love the EM-5. Classic look with fantastic IQ and almost pocketable! And a huge line-up of affordable lenses too! Can't complain.

    Add me to this quote as well! I've spent the last 10 years almost with Pentax dslr's. Very happy with the performance overall, and the option of using some great legacy glass. But not so much inspired by the camera like how the EM-5 inspires me to pick it up and use it!

    Yes I've been shooting Canon for 2-3 years and then Nikon for another 2 years. Both are fantastic SLRS (5D, D7000) but at the end of the day, this M4/3 gives me the right balance of value and the right compromise.

    I'd heard about this trick, but the videos I'd found were not helpful. This one looks like it might be. Thanks so much for sharing!!

    I have been using that "focus peaking" setup with my voigtlander 17.5mm lens. Its really useful.
