    I received OMD recently wasnt very much impressed initially and I did think of selling it . But after first 48 hrs , I must say I have very little to complain. Its a woderful machine and I hate that hump and wobbly buttons . Everything else simply rocks . Here are some pics . Comments are welcome .All images shot with kit lens 12-50 and are OOC JPEGs.
    Cheers

    The image quality and quick control of the OMD is outstanding, IMO.

    Thanks Bill , yes I agree with that . I have no issues with any UI on planet earth and I was at home with OMD within minutes as I have had used loads of Olys in past.Dual dials and custom options make life easy.

    I was shooting my daughter making pancakes today, and it was SO easy to adjust EV and aperture (in A mode), to try some different stuff on the fly. I love the two wheels on this camera. Perfectly laid out, IMO. The only double-guessing I had on the OMD was the price and the ergonomics of the grip. They are related, because I really like the HLD-6 grip, which makes it a $1300 camera. Mostly, my camera purchases stay in the $400-700 range, so this was 2-3X my normal investment, but I've made peace with the cost, to get the controls and IQ.

    Thats right Bill, its so easy . I dont think I will make any camera purchase at least for one year . I have just bought two cameras within a month time . I dont think anything will attract me for the time being . I just wanna get few lenses especially new Pannt 35-100 and thats it . I Think Oly Kit lens 12-50 is quite Okay at 14 mm and I have stopped dreaming about Panny 14 mm

    Bhu,Your pics are a 10+!You must use this camera for more than 48 hours to fully appreciate what it is.So if you love it to 10 now, in a month you will be over the moon!
    Did you get the grip? Or do you feel you want it?

    Hahaahahh I dont think so. EPL2 has exellent ergonomics and will remain my fav PEN. I just love the grip , built in flash . OLy should have copied this design for EPL5 with add on tilt screen.

    Don't you think this is a bit 'suggestive'? Perhaps needs NSFW warning. :biggrin:

    Trust me you will come to LOVE that hump. It is the "business" end of the camera and makes a HUGE difference in composition abilities. Nice job so far

    Thanks for that. I am trying to ignore the hump and when I think it will be helpful in sunny conditions and its quite rainy in Melbourne at present. I love GX1 as well and it has surprised me .

    GH3 looks awesome though. Does it have awesome IBIS like the OM-D though?

    About the pictures: Nice! #1 is just unbelievably good; I love it. Did you add the vignetting in some of the others, or is that what the 12-50 does? It's quite apparent.

    About the camera: yeah, it's great isn't it? It's so far superior to any other m43 camera I've tried (and I'm embarrassed about how many I've tried). My only gripe is that it's a little heavier than I'd like, but I guess that's the price of quality construction and weather-sealing.
