Pros: Handy, good EVF, good IQ, stabilizer, silent, remote control with an iPhone, nice built-in effects, and a wide choice of excellent optics

Cons: Battery life, limited ISO compared to FF (which was expected), continuous AF

Opinion: I had my honeymoon with that camera, after having used the E-M5. This one shows signs of maturity; for instance, the EVF is much better, and good enough for a FF camera fan. Image quality is generally very good, but compared to FF cameras such as the Nikon Df, the pictures look slightly "engineered" or "overprocessed". Also, I set the high ISO limit to 2200 for acceptable results. That's the natural consequence of having a significantly smaller sensor, which is partly compensated by the existence of stellar, fast optics (Olympus 75/1.8 comes to mind). The main positive consequence however is, handling and portability are much better. Using an iPhone for remote control, though not essential, is a treat. Battery life is limited. I systematically carried two full spare batteries with me, when on photographic trips. Another bonus is the ability to use "legacy" lenses (such as old Canon FDs) and to tune the stabilizer for using them. E.g. the Nikkor 1802.8 ED, which then acts the stabilized 360mm equivalent: quite useful for paparazzo work.

Pros: Handy, well tropicalized

Cons: Made in China

Opinion: I had two: the first one died at 12 thousand shots; The second with the upper ring running empty, at the time repaired as a guarantee, but the defect is back. At 37,000 shots the screen started at any moment. Many photos, when used during services, even in jpeg were not saved on the card. I thought it was a board issue, but I still use it on 5D III today and I've never had a problem. I think it depended on me taking a lot of single shots in a matter of seconds, maybe using the burst, I would have solved, but I don't like burst shots. Raw light, but with little information, so much so that at one point I preferred to set it in jpeg. I don't know if I was unlucky, but from my experience I can say that they are good machines, but that they do not make work in peace because you always have the anxiety that you can break something, or that the photos are not saved. They are well-designed machines, which if they were built in Japan, would have split the market

Pros: Full of programmable keys, tropicalization, stabilization, RAW quality, vast optical park, autofocus, price on used.

Cons: High ISO management, JPEG quality, new price, awkward settings menu, grip for those with big hands like me, low sensor resolution

Opinion: It is the second micro 4/3 camera I purchased, the first was a lower-end Panasonic, but newer. This Olympus is built like a tank, it is almost indestructible, tropicalization is also felt on weight, although it is not excessively large or heavy (indeed, with my hand the little finger remains out of the handle, and is often uncomfortable). The photo quality is great, even today in 2021, if taken in RAW and not at more than 1600 ISO. Autofocus is crazy, although by today's standards it doesn't have many MaF points. Its strength side is a hybrid AF, with both phase and contrast detection, also for this reason it is possible to mount with the appropriate adapter all olympus reflex 4/3 optics and use them as native, native optics that are many and there are for all tastes and price ranges. Another thing I really like about this room is the amount of programmable keys, they are really many and allow you to "sew the machine on you", but good luck if you want to understand something about how to set them, given that the menu is set very badly and translated even worse, on par if not worse than the first Sony mirrorless. The sensor is a 16 megapixel, it's fine for social media or regular prints, but if you want a bigger print or want to crop the photos, they become few. Also exceeded the 1600 ISO the files that this camera produces are almost unusable, especially JPEG, the RAW is recoverable, but do not expect a good level of detail. I will conclude by saying that if you buy it used on the 350/400 euros it is absolutely worth it, it is an excellent room to have something more compact than a reflex, but equally quality and resistant, perhaps alongside a beautiful fixed lens open, it will give you a lot of satisfaction.

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.
