Hi folks! I started this thread to gather some user reviews and experiences for the E-P5. I will start off! I come from DSLRs like E-510 and E-3. My last camera was the E-M5 with battery grip which I sold to get the "advantages" of the E-P5 while I wait for a bigger more ergonomical camera that hopefully supports 4/3 lenses in a better way. I like to shoot birds with my fully manual nikon 300mm f2.8 and also macros. So for me the low iso, 1/8000 shutter speed, fast shutter respons, vf-4 and focus peaking got me thinking about the E-P5. So here are my initial impressions coming from E-M5 Things that could improve: - Build quality is great but weather sealing would have been even better - As usual the strap nuts are kind of in the way - Built in flash should be tiltable - There should be an option to turn off the rear lcd completely and still use eye sensor on the vf-4. When the camera is not to my eye I want it completely black please? - Most of the buttons feel good, but the circular thing around the OK button is horrible. Whoever designed this should.... It cuts into your thumb if you don't use your fingernails to press it. - Focus peaking is beta at best. I don't really know if I can use it at all. I guess it looks good but the frame rate drops HARD and when you half press the shutter to stabilize the view, the whole damn thing goes away. Come on Olympus didn't you even try the feature before releasing it? - The shutter button is not very tactile. The one from E-M5 is alot better. - Mode dial is too easy to turn and feels exactly like the control wheel to the right of it. I accidently turn the mode dial all the time since E-M5 has the wheels a little bit apart. - If you use half shutter press with IBIS there is a lag if you release the shutter. The IBIS works for another second which is nothing big, but it doesn't make the whole experience swift. I like things to happen instantly when I press something and also stop working instantly when I don't want it anymore. On to the good things: + Camera feels responsive! I like the low delay options for the shutter. Dunno if it limits something else with the camera, but it feels good anyway + ISO LOW and 1/8000 is very welcome + Small focus point rocks + HDR bracketing, thaaaank you! + I like having the magnify button on the back close to your thumb + Shutter is even more quiet than E-M5 i believe Those are the things that come to mind now. I haven't tried WIFI yet but as I have heard it only works in i-auto which, frankly, sucks.
