    Hi Guys.. :smile:
    I am not gonna start a debate here which camera is the best for you and which has amazing IQ or ergonomics . This is all about OMD . We all know that cameras market is flooded with mirrorless offerings and its a mirorless jungle out there now , and none of them is bad , every camera has a plus points . Now I would always pick up OMD over any other offering simply because of few simple reasons -
    1) Rugged and weather sealed buit
    2) Stunning IQ
    3) Exellent IBIS
    4) SUperfast and yet to surpassed AF system.
    5) Very versatile grip but expensive though
    And this makes Kind of Mirroless world . There is no other camera , so versatile , so well built and so responsive .( Please hold your fire :wink::wink:) EPL5 and EPM2 are OLy as well
    I have owned this camera since Sept last year and I can tell you its a dream machine . Its a pleasure to shoot with and output is consistent and superb. Now combine that with exellent range of MFT lenses makes it even more fun to use.
    Now here are some images I wanna share which I shot over the last few months .

    Well, I love my E-M5 also -- but apparently it's not for everyone as I see more than a few folks send them back or sell them. Mine is a keeper and if I was sitting on more cash I'd have two -- but my second camera is now a Panny G5 replacing the E-PL5 I was using for that.

    Excellent photos by the way!

    I agree with that.Its not for everyone . But its a winner product and It changed the image of MFT in digital era. It brought MFT to the main front , fought and won with other mirorrless warriors from other major players and won ..So that why I call it THE KING:2thumbs::2thumbs:

    This is super debatable........GH3 owners would likely say otherwise....with the GH3 you get top tier still image quality as well as undisputed top video performance- the OMD video while good, isn't a match, therefore calling it "King"......need I say more?
    It is what it is~

    Hahah yes Its debatable but King has to be popular and easily approachable . Thats what OMD is, GH3 is out of range of many people and size and price defeats the purpose of MFT . It was OMD who made everyone aware that MFT format is equally capable and can give stunning results .

    GH3 out of range? Too expensive? Well, if you add on the hand grip they're both on par.
    The OMD is the queen, for the King, there is no other than the GH3, sorry.
    The GH3 is larger, has a better screen (articulating), better video with more formats, same image quality on stills, better menu and ui, also weather proof, it's got an electronic shutter so you can both save the mechanical one, and take sneaky shots as people can't hear a thing.
    The OMD is an elegant piece of work with nice abilities but the king of the jungle resides with Panasonic. Let's call a spade a spade. :biggrin:

    Come on guys, be nice. LOL. In my opinion, OMD is the Queen (camera store said omd is a she) and GH3 is the King. Agree?

    I also really love the OM-D E-M5, and only wish bit rate was higher. If it had an OVF, it would be perfect!

    No argument from me, but I've been liking the way Olympus does things since long before anyone even thought of saying "camera" and "Panasonic" in the same sentence.

    Just kidding!

    But in general I've found I prefer the Olympus bodies, partly for the stabilization with legacy glass, partly just the ergonomics. I don't shoot video, and for me the E-M5 is a perfect still camera, with the controls I want, where I want them. My favorite kit, though, is the E-M5 with the PL Summilux 25mm.

    I would tend to resemble her (X-E1) as her (E-M5's) evil step sister. :rolleyes:
