To download the pdf go on Amazon (Click here) and than click on “get forms” and than when the pop up opens click on “Olympus Rebate Form” to download the pdf. A link to the E-M5 at Amazon is here. You can do the same on BHphoto (Click here) but there seems to be an issue when you try to download the pdf.
Meantime the Los Angeles Time published an article about the E-M5: “The Olympus OM-D E-5 with its retro look, is a great choice for someone moving up from a compact point-and-shoot who wants the feel of a full-size DSLR, but doesn’t want the size or weight. ”
DSLRmagazine (Translation here) compared the camera with the Samsung NX20. Samsung the giant against Olympus the traditional small photo company. On paper an unfair comparison…
