Pros: Body small and light machine, but at the same time very "pro". Great jpeg. Autofocus fast and responsive, in relative terms (compared to other m4/3) and absolute (compared to the SLRS possessed). It looks very nice.

Cons: At the high iso the sensor begins to show "the rope"... and the differences with the larger FF sensors are shown.... The WB automatically does not always "recommend" well, even when the light conditions are not particularly difficult....

Opinion: At the "machine-to-hold-in-hand" level, we're really at the top. Small but not too much, light, very ergonomic (it falls in the hand very well...... much better than the Sony A7 that I also own and with which it basically shares the size and weight), to the touch and use you immediately feel, "skin", that it is a "pro" body.... never the feeling of photographing with a toy, but always with a very efficient "real" camera. The jpeg files are really good and worthy of special mention: you just need a little attention in the initial setting of the WB: the one in "car" not always "c'just" correctly... Once this preliminary attention has been received, the EM1 pays for the (few) seconds lost by churning out jpeg F A V O L O S I !!!! In fact, in most cases, it becomes almost useless any post, as equally (almost) useless would be the work on the file counterpart saved in raw, since the jpeg "conversion" in the room is really great. I also had EP3, EP5, EPM2 and Panasonic GX1 and GX7: the jpeg, in the EM1, are a notch higher, for overall yield, of all these. The Autofocus is fast and precise... Then... Sure.... the limits of the 4/3 sensor are there, they know each other..... it would not even be correct to ask the machine what you know well at the start will not be able to give. Used with the zuiko 45 1.8 and with the sigma 56 1.4 becomes an excellent compact and lightweight "portrait camera", to be really taken "everywhere". Maybe my D700 with sigma 85 1.4 manages to peel off a little more and make it a little better at the high iso....... but at the price of how much more weight to carry with it!!!!! Paradoxically, I recommend buying this first version, rather than the most recent, in the sense that it has reached a very affordable value for money. Maybe not "intons", with some signs, you can take it home even with just over 200 euros.......

Pros: Handling, Stabilization, Functions, Af

Cons: 16 mpix

Opinion: This is my third Em1 I own... not because the previous ones had been damaged. Simply because I tried other bodies over the past few months but in the end or out of habit or because it was really more ergonomic, I preferred the Olympus. First of all, the die that surrounds the shutter button... allows you to reset the desired settings and shoot almost at the same time; that's something I love. Then the stabilization that makes each lens stabilized. It works very well and from a breath of modernity even to lenses of 30/40 years! Despite the not-so-fresh project [dating back to 2013] it has interesting features such as live composite to play with the shales of lights in certain situations without bringing the overexposed photo and above all combines the photos automatically without posts, focus stacking to increase the depth of field when we do macro photos. Autofocus which is very fast and accurate, obviously improves with pro lenses. If you don't have particularly big hands it's ideal... all the controls fall in to the brush unlike other machines that I tried (sony a7II/III) where the extreme compactness of the body, made my hand take such a position that it then brought me pains to the same. The surrender to the high iso may not be the best... maybe also because you have to be careful how you edit the photo in post production... all in all acceptable. It has "only" 16 mpix that could be enough but if you tend to make photo clippings, they are a little bit... All in all it still defends well, for those who approach the m4/3 system is ideal.

Pros: Quality, price, ergonomics, compactness, stabilization.

Cons: High ISO...

Opinion: Purchased used, out of curiosity, for a few months. Initially disappointed because I compared it with the cameras that Possseggo and on some sectors just there are no comparisons; Especially on operating speed and high ISO. Slowly, however, using it intensely, I began to appreciate it; Ergonomics and dimensions (and weight) has no rivals, the raw files are excellent and well machinable, the stabilization is exceptional, the focus is not the best but enough and advances... A complete car with which you can cover a little ' all the fields of photography. The use gladly with Nikon optics is astounding to me how much it dimediates the minimum focusing distance compared to the SLR cameras. Too bad for the high ISO (accustomed to the d3s) and some other smallness that however does not penalise it. Also excellent weather sealing. Highly recommended, rated 9.

Pros: Value for money, enjoyment in the shooting phase, construction, system, stabilization

Cons: Little Intuitive Menu

Opinion: A comfortable, beautiful and reliable car. I had it coupled to the 12 40 2.8 pro and together they form a versatile and solid pair. You never get the feeling that something can break unlike the a7r2 that I had the opportunity to try. Currently I think it is the perfect machine for the holidays of total relaxation, because, with a good tripod maybe, allows you to do everything and do it well and I think, in the "genre" relaxing holidays, has no rivals! The Olympus system is really excellent and economical and to exploit it at best you have to understand the strengths of the microquattroterzi that I assure you are more than those you think. We go to the money side, to this day I for a car in excellent condition with few shots and guarantee I would not spend more than 500 euros otherwise I would be between 400 (for the Catorci) and 470 (for the excellent conditions). Rated considering the value for money and the oly system I would say an 8 and a half considering the camera body itself I would say 7.

Pros: Aesthetics, speed, stabilized

Cons: Cervellotico Menu, many keys in little space can create problems in large hands.

Opinion: Snubbed for years the M4/3, thanks to an exchange I tried the EM1. It has nothing to envy to other formats. Using adapters you can use old 4/3 or old manual optics that become stabilized. Functions that others only discover now. Now in the used it is at a favorable price and with little you bring home a great car. Be combined with good lenses. Not being my primary system I opted for savings. The 4/3 12-60 Swd 2.8-4 (excellent) via adapter and the Sigma Art 60mm f 2.8. It costs 2 lire used and is mind-blowing for portraits. Sure if you have to take from testing to monstrous magnifications and to ISO fiction you will find some difference with new models. In practice normally used between 200 and 800 iso None, I repeat, no one is able to grasp the differences.
