Pros: Form factor, handling, great quality in the absolute sense of what you ask of it

Cons: Battery, sensor exposure when changing lenses

Opinion: I'm a simple amateur who has abandoned bigger and more expensive cameras, first for an em5II that I still have and then for the om5, I don't pay attention to performance or obsessive manias related to iso, bitrate or comparative of any ... When I see something or someone I like or I'm in a wonderful place that deserves to be in my memories ... click! Responsive, beautiful in the details, ready and comfortable to carry with me, with appropriate lenses it is able to give the best. That said, I've brought some nice prints to some exhibitions with her, some prints are large, what are you missing?? I would just like to point out to be careful with the sensor, it remains exposed to the detachment of the lenses and the battery may last longer.

Pros: Size, lightness, AF, optical system, white balance, stabilization, aesthetics, price

Cons: Vlogger-style screen, some "light" construction details, decent battery life

Opinion: I'm an amateur, travel photography, some personal projects between street and reportage. I often have lab prints. I have and have had other cameras, at the moment a Nikon Df let's say "collectible", a Sony A7II that I use only with adapted manual lenses and this OM-5, which I bought by trading in an entire Pentax K-1 system and optics. For the OM-5 I use 7-14 Pro, 12-40 Pro, 17 Pro and 25 Panaleica. For me, the M43 sensor is new. Taken about 1500 shots so far, only raw. I am very satisfied with the OM-5, for its compactness and lightness, it allows me to go out with a small and light backpack, where there is also room for a film camera and some optics. No problem for the ISO sealing, so far I have never shot at sensitivities other than the native 200, shooting at open apertures and taking advantage of the really remarkable stabilization there is no need to go up with the sensitivity. I'm not a fan of "blur" so the large depth of field of the small sensor is welcome. The ergonomics of the machine are good, by customizing the physical controls I can use it almost without ever going through the menu and keeping the screen closed. The efficiency of the automatic WB is remarkable, which on other machines created problems for me. I often convert to BN, with convincing results just by using the camera profiles from Lightroom. The autofocus is accurate, fast and easy to use. Weaknesses... Some parts (the battery door, the caps of the side connectors) are a bit too cheap. The laterally articulated screen is of little use, I would have much preferred a tiltable screen to be used as a cockpit. The battery doesn't have a great battery life. Some other considerations that are not real weak points, but on which it is right to draw attention. The sensor format... I'm not used to 4:3, I often find myself cropping in 2:3. You have to get used to it and learn how to take advantage of the format. The sharpness... I always reduce it to post, for me even excessive... and I also add a bit of grain, otherwise the images seem too "digital" to me. But these are intrinsic characteristics of the format. Who is the OM-5 for? For those who aim for results, they want lightness and compactness, without breaking the bank.

Pros: Low weight, cost of optics, versatility, portability, image quality.

Cons: Adaptation to the new system, but after a while you get used to it.

Opinion: Like many passionate photographers, I have always placed great importance on the quality of the image and the performance of my equipment. For years, my trusty Nikon D750 has been an irreplaceable companion on my photographic journeys, giving me superior quality images that only a Full Frame system can provide. However, as time went on, the weight of the gear became a limiting factor in my adventures, prompting me to look for a lighter but equally capable alternative. My research led me to the OM System OM5, a choice that I knew involved a "leap backwards" in terms of sensor format and, potentially, image quality. I was prepared for this compromise, but what I didn't expect was how little I would miss my old D750. The OM5 turned out to be a pleasant surprise in many respects. First of all, the low weight of the camera and optics freed me from one of the biggest obstacles that limited my creativity and desire to explore. Not only that: the lenses for this system, in addition to being significantly cheaper than the equivalent for Full Frame, offer a quality and performance that go far beyond my expectations. Investing in these lenses has allowed me to explore new creative perspectives without taxing my budget. From an image quality point of view, the OM5 proved to be more than up to the challenge. Although aware of the theoretical limitations due to the smaller sensor, in practice I have found that the images produced are rich in detail, with vivid colors and excellent noise management. The camera also offers a wide range of advanced features that have helped me experiment and improve my photography techniques. In conclusion, switching to the OM System OM5 was a winning choice for me. Despite my initial concerns about image quality and performance, this camera didn't make me regret my Nikon D750. For my photography style and increasingly portable, mobile-oriented lenses, the OM5 proved to be the ideal option, giving me freedom, flexibility, and most importantly, the joy of photography without limits. If, like me, you're looking for a lighter solution without compromising too much on quality, I highly recommend considering the OM System OM5.

Pros: Weight, elegance, tropicalization, stabilization all at the top. Endless range of high quality optics (Oly, Pana, Leica, Venus etc.)

Cons: For my needs, nothing.

Opinion: I almost always use it with the combination of PANA 12-60 F 2.8-4 and LAOWA 7.5. I have other amazing lenses such as the Pana 8.18 and the 12-40 Pro F 2.8 + a cheap 40-150 F 4-5.6 zoom that still offers very good results. With the high definition setting you can make incredible crops while maintaining very good quality even without resampling and I find this very very useful. Let's add that the machine works very well even at -10 degrees to testify to the build quality that you want more ? Considering the pros and cons, I still prefer it to the very expensive, very heavy and bulky full frame. Rated 10 and if I could even more.

Pros: Dimensions, weight, tropicalization. Stabilization. Perfect colors. WB great.

Cons: Old USB port, Lack of joystick, AF not always ready.

Opinion: For passion and a bit for work, I can use many systems, from the M43 from 500 euros to the FF of the A9II with Sigma Art lenses (in my gallery there are photos made with a bit of everything). I am also one who loves to have photos printed. Why this premise? Because beyond the specific features of the OM-5, the first thing I want to share (after almost 40 years of photography and a lot of equipment) is that the results obtainable with a modern mirrorless are in 90% of cases more than enough for any enthusiast. The OM-5, then. Of my M43 is the one I prefer because it is really small and light and very well tropicalized (not only on paper, it has already taken everything). I often ride with the 15 1.7 Leica but I have several lenses available and they are all excellent. Its stabilization is so good that with the 15 1.7 shooting in the evening at ISO 200 without any particular problems. During the day I enjoy the PDC that guarantees the system even with strong openings (so lower ISO and better GD). I have never had quality problems, in any condition. Always correct colors, WB great. Noise? For how I shoot, little. Taking advantage of the stabilizer and using luminous lenses hardly I get to 1600. I like Live Composite, it's fun and leads to amazing results. The built-in ND filters (it's actually their simulation) are very useful. I use very little HR shooting but for shots such as stills of products or static landscapes I think it is interesting. What I don't like is the micro usb port (amazing). The ignition I moved to the right selector and I'm better. It lacks a joystick that for me is always comfortable. I wish I could quickly activate the focus at the center point, after moving it. But in the end they are small compromises. When I get home and download the files I am always more than satisfied. If you are looking for low weight, small size, high stabilization and true tropicalization, there is no better choice than this. Take quality lenses (on the M43 they cost much less than on the FF) because they matter more than the body and the system/sensor.
