Epic Olympus E-M5 OM-D User Review

To me the Olympus OM-D marks the tipping point where the Micro Four Thirds format made the leap from a good idea in theory to a good idea in practice.


If you have done similar research, and as evidenced by the photo at the top of this post, you surely know that there was only one camera choice for me: the remarkable new Olympus E-M5 OM-D. So, right after Christmas I ordered up an OM-D along with an Olympus 45mm f/1.8 lens and Panasonic’s 14mm f/2.5 and 20mm f/1.7 pancake lenses. Over the first 3 weeks I have already logged over 2,000 shots on the OM-D and have sold my 30D kit on eBay. I can tell you that the OM-D is really quite an amazing camera system.

Pentax vs Canon AF Performance

Two years ago I was looking for an upgrade to my then 2 year old Canon Digital Rebel XT (350D). I really didn’t have much more than the kit lens and a cheap-o EF 50mm f/1.8 II, so I didn’t feel too married to Canon. I did my research and decided the then new Pentax K10D represented a better value for the $1,800 I had to spend than the more expensive Canon 30D.
