Mine finally arrived! I got the flash also, so I'm guessing us Aussies get the flash and 4/3 to m4/3 adaptor for free!
Of course a test shot:

I thought the clip-on flash is included everywhere around the world, not just Australia :lol:

The lens adaptor is the promo product till 30th June. Pre-ordered customers apparently have a choice of this lens adaptor or bigger flash unit (a much better choices I reckon).


The flash eligible for rebate in North America is the FL-300R. It has a guide number of 28m at ISO 100, so definitely more powerful than the clip-on flash.


Not to mention, it can tilt 30 degrees down for macro shots and 60 degrees up for bounce flash, has a built-in diffuser panel to cover the AOV of 18mm FF, and it can be controlled wirelessly by the clip-on flash.

Of course, bigger is relative....

It's only as big as a deck of cards, and weighs only 96 g without batteries.

By comparison, my 580EX II weighs 374 g and takes up probably 5x more room.

The IQ is on par with a prosumer 7d/60d for static subjects. This camera is simply amazing for a tiny sensor. Studio strobes with this camera is also absolutely stunning. Its a shock factor to a high percentage of dslr owners if they've never seen the file output from this little camera.

Not bad for 12800 ISO!!!!

Yay, paid for a silver E-M5 with black 12-50mm lens from Myer store in Melbourne. Currently Myer has sale price on digital cameras + 10% bonus on gift cards, the total price worked out to under $1150. Can't wait for it to be delivered next week.

Next on the shopping list will be an extra BLN-1 battery, 45mm f/1.8 lens, OLED screen protector and carry case.

A bit OT, but I have pretty close to the same model Kodak. It still works like new, although I haven't put film in it for many years. :D

OM-D E-M5, ISO 200 handheld, 12-50 kit lens. Shot RAW, processed in LR. That 5 axis image stabilization is insane.

It was my grandfather's and was given to me around 1970. So ... the last time I shot with it was probably 1972-74.

smaller but not pocket size. maybe I'm looking for a mirror-less system with a "pancake" lens

so get a pancake for the OMD? It's jacket pocket size, but not pant pocket size. I wish it didn't have the EVF but so far I'm LOVING it as my EVIL camera. I've had a X100 and NEX5 and GF1 before this and they all had fatal flaws of some sort. The only complaint I have with the OMD is it's size, which still isn't terrible...

PEN series EP-3 sounds like its more up your alley than the OMD then.


I just got to pick mine up today, and so far seems like it was a good choice. I also picked up a 45mm 1.8 to stick on the front of it as well.

Yeah, definitely doesn't work well with skinny jeans :lol:
Why don't you want the EVF? The reason I bought it was because it had it, instead of having to buy it separately for a couple of hundred dollars.

The EVF "hump" also houses the stability gyros.

Same here. Although as a first time EVF user, I later realized that it does not play well with polarized sungglasses :(. What's even more sad is that my VF3 does.

I have to say though, even at ISO 6400, it can go toe to toe against my 60d :)
