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.

OM-D OMG!!!

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.
