Olympus OM-D

Well, I finally received my Olympus OM-D which I pre-ordered back in early February.  I have been so busy building a chicken run the last few days that I haven't even had a chance to give the new camera a real day out.  My preliminary assessment is that this is a gem of a camera.  Using it a bit around the house shows that the image stabilization is the finest that I have ever used.  The stabilized image in the viewfinder just seems to float.  Image detail at 100% is superb.  The camera is solid and substantial.   All control dials and buttons are solid and decisive.  There is nothing so far that I don't like.  This really is the Micro 4/3 camera that I have been waiting for.

  1. I enjoyed skimming thru your blog today (via link from Kirk Tuck blog) - eager to read more about your solar installation and how it works out. The OM-D looks like a fine feature set - similar in many respects to my Lumix GH-2. The Oly has the advantage of that fine in-camera image stabilization, while the GH-2 has features, like the articulating LCD, that support my interest in video.
