Default EM1 and the EM5 side by side

Just stumbled on this pic on google images of the EM1 and the EM5 side by side .. pleasantly surpised that the M1 is a wee bit taller and plus the grip should make it nicer to hold.

We included some side by side shots of these two in our E-M1 review as well.

Olympus have updated 'lenses on M1' ad page here ==> http://tinyurl.com/mx3ts6c

Not all lenses but some FT of what I have; not the FT 9-18 which will be a favorite use lens for me. __________________

The grip is a good improvement as well as the layout of the buttons in back, less cluttered for clumsy fingers.

On the contrary Marcello. You DO need this camera and you must order it now before they are all gone. How can you possibly walk around NYC with an old camera.

Fantastic site Bob, it is the first time I see it, looks so good and tempting the new M1 specially if you have the 4/3 lenses.

I had chance to hold and try this camera last week, the focus is fast with the 14-54mm but I noticed it is slower with the 12-60mm.

I think this is what Olympus promised a few years ago to create a beautiful system that integrate the 4/3 and u4/3 in one.

Good for you guys..!!

Bob I can't wait to see your review of the M1.
