Olympus OM-D E-M5 Quick Take

As any of you who follow me on twitter know, I'm a total Olympus fan boy. I have everything from an original OM to an E-620, an E-PL1 and an E-P3. How could I possibly resist the newest addition to the Olympus line-up, the OM-D E-M5. Sure then name sucks and can easily be confused with a fax machine model number... But lets just call it the OM-D for now since there isn't another OM-D model to confuse it with. There are a lot of haters out there that say this isn't a real OM since it isn't even a range finder. It's basically a re-bodied E-P3 with a few new tricks. For example, it's the highest resolution Micro 4/3 camera from Olympus yet at 16mp (I think Panasonic has a 16mp M4/3 camera already though...) There are tons of websites that have reviewed the OM-D and can list the specs so I'll cut right to the chase. I've had the camera for a little over two weeks now and I love it. I took it to Las Vegas with me for NAB (all the NAB Photo Tour photos were snapped with the OMD) less than a week later I took it with me to Disneyland for some more testing. I use a small variety of lenses: the Olympus 12mm f/2, Olympus 45mm f1.8 and the Panasonic 20mm f/1.7. A nice range of primes that covers me from wide to tele. Here are some of the samples from Disneyland: [gallery link="file" order="DESC" columns="4" orderby="post_date"]
