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.
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.
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.
Pros:Quality of files, quality and materials of machine body, functions, keystroke layout and customization, viewfinder, zuiko optics
Cons:I must say that it is the first time that I find myself in the fight but not find them, honestly
Opinion:I bought the EM1 shortly after the release of the mark II, at a more than good price, and with 0 shots. The car body looks beautiful and extremely robust, tropicalized very well (it has taken a lot of water), the stylus of the keys is excellent: you have everything, but just everything, at your fingertips, the menu opens it once and then never again. It has several more intuitive internal functions, such as live composite, with 5-axis stabilization that is extremely functional. The handle is great, even for hands as large as mys, with the addition of bg or just the bracket Optional "L" becomes perfect. The quality of the files is superb, even for medium prints with its 16mpixel is more than enough. Using a 12 40 f2.8, and more and more often leaving my d750 at home, not only because of the remarkable saving of weight and space due to microscopic zuiko optics but exceptional for quality, but also because, at the end of the fair, ninthbecause of the difference between the two sensors (ff is double the m43), the result of the small omd is amazing. Also advised by professionals, and now that it is at low prices, it is worth investing us some money because, I repeat, it is a exceptional machine at all points of view.
