I am starting to find that I just do not enjoy shooting with the OM-D as much as I enjoy my DSLR.

But I cannot figure out why.

I think I need to learn the OM-D better.

Is there any way to turn off the shutter sound on the OM-D?

Without a mirror, I would think the camera would be quieter.

It's not a digital sound, that's a real shutter doing its thing.

I love the sound of the shutter. I think I read somewhere that it sounded like a Bentley's door shutting. I don't have a Bentley so I can't test it out.

Get the E-P5 or the EM5? I will say biggest draw for me on the EP-5 is the ability to just upload pics via wifi, kinda a feature I wish I had on my pocket p&s tho I am not sure how I will feel about the optical viewfinder having to be an add on accessory rather than part of the camera which is what I like about the EM5 more and the EM5 seems sturdier? It's better sealed etc yes? I am looking to use this as my main camera. I just do not use my 5DmkII anymore, the phone and pocket cam get the action. So I figure give m4/3 a go :cool:

There are limitations on the wifi feature on the E-P5. I believe you can only use it in iAuto shooting mode. Or maybe that's just for remote shutter. Don't quote me on that, but the point is it might not be as useful as it sounds. Definitely do the research if that's a big selling point for you.

E-M5 is weather sealed, E-P5 is not. The new VF-4 should be better than the E-M5's built in one, but there is that issue with having to attach it. Just depends what you want really. Both are excellent choices. I'm tempted by the E-P5 but I think that's just GAS speaking :lol:

I'm interested by the 1/8000th shutter and focus peaking. Personally I'm waiting to see what the update to the OM-D will be like, if it even comes out this year. Have been looking at getting a second hand GH2 or GH3 but there's zero m43 stuff in my local used market.

I really like my OM-D, so much more fun then the 5DIII, and because its so much lighter I can take it with me almost anywhere.

OMD thread! Nice

The OMD is my second camera, I have the Oly 45mm f1.8, pana 14mm f2.5 and the samyang 7.5mm fisheye

What I love about the OMD is the in body stabilation (it really works) and the small size

The samyang is not bad as a UWA landscape lens:

I love the OMD EM5 :D, my sister inlaw asked me yesterday to sell her 70-200 2.8 MK2 as she has hardly use's it because of the size weight issue , she is only 5ft tall.

She ask if I have ever regretted selling off my DSLR kit for m43's and the answer was a resounding no , I can take my whole kit in a backpack and hardly notice the weight or if I want to just take the camera and a couple of lenses and throw them in a carry bag.

Thats the one big plus for a M43 outfit , you can take it everywhere with you ;) I could not say that same with a DSLR .


Olympus OMD EM-5

12-50 , 25 F1.4 , 60 F2.8 Macro , 75 F1.8 , Tripod 3LT Brian , Lee Seven5 .

If you want Wi-Fi and a built-in viewfinder, have you considered the Panasonic GH3? It's ergonomically streets ahead of the Olympus, takes just as good stills and better video. There's no IBIS, but that's not a problem for me since pretty much all my lenses for this system are stabilised.

Recently became an OM-D convert here :D Sold all my DSLR gear.

Currently own the OM-D, 17mm f/1.8, 75mm f/1.8, 12-50mm kit and 75-300mm II

All shots were taken with the 17mm

sorry but GH3 doesn't have the same appeal to OM-D.

I would say it's too big for the m43... :D
