    Not that some of the impressions haven't been made by pros, but if you want to just focus a bit less on the tech and a bit more on the images, Olympus has a great page for you:

    Photographers | OLYMPUS OM-D E-M1

    No talk about how great the camera is, how good the specs are, blah blah. Just images and the respective settings. Be sure to click on "See all photos" at the bottom of each photographer's section; there are some great images that aren't featured on the main part of the page. Also, if you want higher resolution files (not full-res, just bigger), you can right click on the image and select open image in a new tab if you're using chrome(and at least some other browsers, I'm sure).

    All these images appear to be SOOC, and they really demonstrate well what the camera can do in capable hands in a nice photojournalistic style.

    Interesting that they only appear to feature Japanese photographers.

    We know it can take good pictures (at least as good as the E-M5)...who cares.

    What we want to know what makes the camera superior to the E-M5, the NEW features, how good the phase detection focusing is.

    Gosh a bit of a Debbie downer no? Hahah trust me, I care about those things as much as anyone else on this forum--just look at my post history. But there's tech talk in every single other one of the various E-M1 threads. I thought these are nice sets Demonstrating what you could do *with* that technology, particularly for the sports and wild life pictures

    I get the feeling that the E-M1 is kinda... new. ;)

    I don't see what difference that makes?

    .... well I'm not surprised, they're all Japanese aren't they. Just be thankful they didn't feature any European photographers - we'd all have to suffer potted plants, family pets, gardening implements ...

    I want to see pictures from actual enthusiast photographers. That's the kind I'm going to get (at best).

    The camera is not available for sale yet!

    Although if someone is willing to arrange to get an E-M1 into my hands...

    Very nice. I am a bit confused why they feel the need to state M for manual or A for Aperture priority? I would be much much more interested in the the AF mode personally.

    Lots of 4/3 glass being used in these shots!

    There is a guy on another forum using it from his office, but I haven't seen him posting it.

    True, though I guess it gives you a glimpse into each photographer's technique. I noticed one of the photographers uses P mode quite a bit and another (or maybe it was the same one) was using a lot of the art filters. I imagine Olympus is trying to show versatility and trying to touch all bases here.

    There are some very nice photographs but they just make me wish I had the lenses they're using more so than the camera :eek:

    Olympus is a Japanese company and this camera is currently not available in the market yet. So it makes sense. Maybe they will add a few more from pros around the world in the coming months.
