More snow today, a lot more than before. Had to buy myself some waterproof boots, my running sneakers weren't cutting it in this weather! EM1 and the 12-40.

I dig that snow set, the first two shots in particular are gems


looking forward to the snow arriving up here, it'll end the late-fall blahs.

Question to members who own and use the new E-M1 body - for a large user of legecy glass, does the focus peaking merit the purchase price of the new camera body ?

IMO, no. Olympus's focus peaking is horrible. You only have the outline colors of black and white, and neither choice really shows up very well, and it slows the EVF refresh rate because I guess it's considered a "filter" like Oly's other filters -- I guess they haven't figured out (or don't care) too much about peaking to do it properly.

That said, the VF-4 is really freaking nice, and you might not need focus peaking.

Personally I've never been a big fan of peaking, even on things like my NEX-5N - it's quite often inaccurate, especially with fast glass.

For me at least, pumping up JPEG sharpening to MAX and eyeballing it in the VF is much more accurate, as I just look for a "shimmer" in the VF. YMMV of course.

Here's one of my favorite images from last Saturday at Old Car City USA in White, GA. If you've never been there, it's a treat for photographers. I came home with so many images that it was hard to choose the winners. Still trying to edit my set of keepers.

For anyone interested, I've just completed my EM1 review over at my new site:
http://smithclicks.com/hardware/olympus-om-d-e-m1-review-1/

I hope Fred and you guys don't mind the plug - it's ad-free, just a labor of love (for now)

If you happen to read it and find any problems or have questions, gimme a yell!

cputeq,

Fantastic EM-1 review. Very fair and even-handed. I agree with most of what you said - it is an impressive camera. Thanks for all the work.

Thanks for the kind words Rick, I really appreciate it I considered it a challenge to try to cover most of the bases I wanted to cover, and I think I *still* left some stuff out, but oh well, it was fun completing it (if fairly labor-intensive)
Maybe I'll make a few addendum's when I get the time.

I only just got my E-M5, but coming from a GH2 I have to say I'm extremely impressed with the IBIS, and pleasantly surprised by the solid semi-macro mode on the 12-50.

Not bad for 1/10s handheld in low light through 10mm of aquarium glass -

Here are a couple from the other day - I am starting to appreciate the 12-40 zoom lens. Love the way the EM-1 handles.

This is a very good review although I had only skimmed through it. Definitely very useful for anyone thinking about getting the E-M1. The E-M5 or E-M1 is not a pocketable camera and it was never meant to be, unlike the E-P5, so I have no problems with the size. It is compact or baby DSLR.

I do have to agree with you that the E-M1 is sexy-nice although many people seem to think otherwise. It's certainly a lot nicer than most DSLR's IMO. The grip could be shaped or molded a little better but it's functional and it does the job well.

With regard to the camera height being a little short, I solved that problem (totally by accident) by getting the RRS L-plate which I needed. If you don't really care for an L-pate I would still recommend that you get the base plate, as it covers the entire base of the base of the camera and adds 3/8" to its height (even to the grip) so your pinky can rest comfortably around the grip.

Thanks for sharing this review, Jeremy.
