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.
