Can anyone speak to the video capability of the camera? I'm particularly interested in how well the continuous autofocus works. I've searched YouTube but can't really get a good feel for it.

The IS is amazing when shooting video. The AF is good in the light but in a dark bar shooting a band it would lose focus so much I went for manual focus instead.

Thanks, I guess manual focus will still be the best bet then.

I'm searching like crazy for one of these now. Everyone raving about them and the pictures in this thread have pushed me over the edge :lol:. I tried the G1X for a bit, great images just wasn't my cup of tea. I'm hoping this little e-m5 let's me leave the big 5d at home with no regrets.

Now if I could just find one ha!

Has anyone paired this with the Voigtlander 17 or 25mm f/0.95?

I finally got one, black with 14-42 kit + 40-150 lens for an extra $99.
I am planing to get 20mm pancake and 45mm later.

I decided on this camera too. I can't find any silver bodies in my area but I found a grip! I can happily report that those who are worried about the size of the body alone, the grip makes it feel unreal!

But now I have a grip and no camera :(

CameraPro in Bris had silver bodies in stock two weeks ago when I bought from there

I ordered my silver body from Amazon on 4/9 and just got noticed yesterday that it's "shipping soon". If it actually doesn't ship, it won't be here by 6/11 like their shipping estimate shows. :confused:


My village called. I was told that they missed me.

Speedotron users, untie!

I think that olympus is making less silver bodies, as opposed to the demand for them being higher than the black ones. I have a black nikon slr, so i'm keen on the silver for something different.

Is it hard to get black ones in the US as well? It seems like every electronic store over here has one on display.

I am holding the OM-D in my hand right now. I can't believe how tiny it feels. The 14-42 lens is also tiny. Can't wait until the battery finished charging so I can go out and take pictures.
I have three cameras now, a 5D3, an X100 and the OM-D. I will have to let one go.
Most probably it'll be the X100.

I and I'm sure others will be interested to hear your thoughts on how all three compare. Specs are one thing, but enjoyment of shooting with them is what I'm interested in at this point.
