Good image quality
I bought this camera as an upgrade from the em-5, and I am glad that I did because of the superior viewfinder, ergonomics, and new features. Though this is a complex camera with an overwhelming amount of customizable options, I found it simple to set up once I purchased Mastering the Olympus OMD EM1 by Darrell Young. My major reason for upgrading was my dissatisfaction with using the heavier Olympus Pro 12-40mm lens with the em-5. The 12-40mm lens feels natural and well-balanced with the em-1 body. The ergonomics are much superior overall. With the em-1, it is easy to make adjustments to camera settings without removing one's eye from the viewfinder. I am still experimenting with the camera and do not know if its IQ is superior to that of the em-5 or not. So far, pictures seem to be of the same quality, though reds come out more pleasing in pictures taken on the em-1.

Outstanding image quality, most powerful while easy to use! Love it!
I previously owned a Panasonic DMC-G5 and a DMC-GH3. I was reading reviews that this Olympus camera had the best image quality in the Micro Four Thirds world but I was hesitating to move to that one. And this was mainly to the reviews that it was a bit complex to use etc. This camera not only has outstanding image quality, not only has capabilities and adjustments that were not present on the Panasonic models, but IT IS EXTREMELY EASY TO USE WHILE IT IS ALSO EXTREMELY POWERFUL. You have easy and quick access to almost all settings you may need in a week's time! Its size and weight are also ideal! My Panasonics had a bit better grip but this is personal perspective. Olympus grip is also great and "Pro". This camera is highly recommended! With the new lenses announced by Olympus, the lens variety in the MFT world is now even greater!
Great Photos Great Camera Thanks Olympus........
I have been a 4/3 Olympus user since the first e10 came out many years ago. Over that time I have collected many of the Zuiko pro lens for the various 4/3 bodies I have owned. When the micro 4/3 cameras were introduced I followed using my pro lens with an adapter still loved the quality and features but not the slowness of the 4/3 lens with the micro format. When the om-d e-m5 came out the photo quality and features are amazing. but the slowness with the 4/3 lens still left some things to be desired. When I got the OM-D E-M1 everything changed all my 4/3 lens were now like new functioning as they had with the 4/3 system but now on the micro format. This new camera has beaten all my expectations for what my photo needs are. it will take me awhile to learn and adjust to all the features this camera offers. Setting the buttons and dials to my needs and learning to use the many new features will give me many months of exploration . Using my 4/3 lens again at their optimum ability has been joy I have only had the camera a month or so but my photo output has already improved remarkably. This is the best Olympus product I have owned which is saying a lot as I was wowed by my OM-D E-M5. I am looking forward to many years of great photos with this fine instrument.
Stunning camera for the price!
This camera has exceeded my expectations on all fronts. It's super easy to use but also the most advanced camera that I've ever used. (As long as you want it that way) I have cameras costing more than double this one, but honestly this is my favorite. It's small size and powerful features make it my go-to camera on a daily basis. You cannot go wrong with the E-M1!
E-M1 surprises, delights and gets the job done.
As a full-time professional photo-journalist I have used Olympus film cameras for more than 35 years and the 4/3 equipment since 2005. The ruggedness and reliability of the E3 and E5 bodies along with the system lenses provided my bread and butter on a daily basis in some of the most inhospitable (and sometimes dangerous) places on the planet. When the E-M5 came out I tried one as the OM like size and compactness plus the ability to set curves before taking a shot (one of the many custom functions available on the OM-D series) was a boon in an environment where we need JPEGS print ready out of the camera. The dissapointment in the slow and cliunky focus performance with my E-system lenses on the E-M5 mirrorless body was, however, immense. The E-M1 has, however, resolved this and added (with firmware version 3.0 update) tack-sharp follow-focus at 9 fps and image quality that simply leaves the E3/5 cameras dead in the water. Olympus have made it just as weather resistant as the E-series, if not more so. High ISO performance - especially above 800 - is impressive and clean, noise free shots are available without too much effort up to ISO 6400. The size of the camera is a revelation and it makes carrying kit about so much easier than with DX of FX format alternatives. The silence is also a bonus - I can take candid shots in aggressive crowds or tense gang meetings without the mirror-slap and shutter sound giving me away. If moving from a lifetime of optical viewfinder usage you may find the standard settings a problem as the image will lag just after you take a shot. On multiple frame sequences you will then lose track of your subject. To fix this and gain a more optical viewfinder-like experience simply switch the image review function to "Off" and the viewfinder refresh rate to normal. Using the MMF-3 Four Thirds adapter all my old Four Thirds lenses work perfectly on this body with one caveat - there are no cross-type Phase Detect sensors so bear that in mind if used to the "focus on anything" ability of the E-5. It is not too much of a problem as the camera seems to get it right more often in good lighting than the E-series cameras but sometimes, in very low light, it can hunt a bit. Just find something contrasty at the same distance and lock focus on that to solve the problem. Another difference to the E-3/5 series is the way in which the side-by side light-box image comparison display is handled. It is no longer an automatic funtion on the focus area button during playback. It must be activated in the playback options menu. A key accessory I would suggest is the HLD-7 battery grip. This I say for two reasons - firstly, the camera really is tiny and light and the grip adds that extra grip area and "heft" - especially useful when using Four Thirds legacy lenses. Secondly, the BLN-1 only gives about 300 shots in real-world day to day use so the additional battery gives you room to go out the whole day from location to location without worrying about power. Of course the vertical release comfort provided by the full set of front and rear control wheels while shooting verically (in addition to the extra shutter button) is the cherry on top.. If you have a smartphone you can operate the camera remotely and this opens up a whole new vista of opportunities for unusual angles and images. All in all a brilliant camera that has surprised and delighted this old grey-beard raised on optical finders and springs. Worth serious consideration.
