I own the omd em5. I love the little camera. Make sure you've installed the latest version of lightroom or photoshop if you use it. I had difficulties editing the pics before because when i first got it, lightroom and photoshop didnt support .orf files, but now they do, and i love it even more. Very easy to use. Metering is accurate, and af is much faster than my old panasonic gf1. Great image quality considering it's from a mirrorless camera. I'm pleased with the image quality even with the 12-50 f3.5-6.3 lens that came with the camera. Not a big fan of the touchscreen, though. And the flash that comes in the box is useless for me, but maybe because i already own the olympus FL36R flash.

Cons? Jpeg pics came a little oversharpened, even after i dialed it down. Shooting in raw helps. Touchscreen menu isnt great (maybe im just mot used to touchscreen cameras) but can be disabled. That's about it to me. Did i mention i love the camera?
