Default A few test shots with my new E-M5

I took a few shots with my new E-M5 with the 14-42 mm kit lens. I am pretty happy with the results.

That is quite an excellent deal. My E-M1 is going to Olympus this weekend for servicing, primarily due to some water spots I allowed to get on the sensor during at least one lens change the past few days with all the rain we've had, so I'm back to the E-M5 for a while, possibly/probably for the trip to see my daughter unless the E-M1 gets back in time for me to try it our before June 22 when I leave, and re-learning where the buttons are by feel after using the E-M1 for so long.

There are certain button positions I still like better with the E-M5, primarily the on/off switch. The body+upper grip portion really "feels" good too, especially with lenses like the 12-40 and 40-150mm f2.8's.

Those shots are all top notch! And you got a super deal on the equipment to boot. Well done!

Thanks, Greg! This is a really great camera for the money at this juncture. It is better than all the other compact cameras I have in terms of build quality and ease of use. I am really happy with this purchase. The only thing it lacks is the option to create more extra folders. I don't like to store too many pictures in one folder but it doesn't seem to have that option that for me to do that. Perhaps, you can shed some light on that.

Thanks, Steve! I am happy with the quality of the pictures it produced. For landscape and macro/closeup shots, it is better than my Canon APS-C cameras making it a perfect companion when I go traveling.
