Since the new Oly OM-D EM-5 came out I have read dozens of reviews, looked at many images, read comments on this forum and elsewhere, but never held the camera. Finally did so today and I was underwhelmed! With your left hand you have little support, or at least I did't and I did not find it comfortable or easy to hold. The store did not have a grip so I'll have to go back to try that. But if a camera is not comfortable in your hand, would you use it? In 40 plus years of photography I have owned many different cameras and this was the first one that immediately did not fit easily in my hand. Granted i did not shoot with it so I didn't get the benefit of the 5-way IBS, weatherproofing. etc. I also held the Nex 7 which has a much better grip but a tiny viewfinder that i did not like. And please, do not mention using the rear screen. Cameras are not made to hold and shoot at arm's length. Frankly I find the EP-3 a much easier camera to hold and shoot. I've gotten pretty good images out of it even using the 14-150 zoom, but like all of us GAS takes hold and the EM-5 hype in overwhelming. INteresting that Kirk Tuck who is always changing cameras keeps checking out the EM-5 at his camera shop but never buys one. If fact he got a Nex 7. I also have a GH2, so maybe I'll hang on a bit and see what the forthcoming GH3 offers. Plus there are rumors that Olympus is coming out with a "pro" model perhaps by the end of this year. Wonder if others are thinking the same thoughts?
