The image on top shows the new Kaza E-M5 case (Click here to see them on eBay). It’s way cheaper than the Black (Click here) and Brown (Click here) Gariz case!
And now it’s time for the next E-M5 review link session:
Trustedreview (Click here) posted a new E-M5 review: “Overall image quality is very good too, with the E-M5 consistently able to produce sharp, detailed and richly toned JPEGs, with the option to record 12-bit Raw image files for more detailed post production.”
Photoreview Australia (Click here) writes: “Despite its convoluted user interface, it’s difficult not to be impressed by the E-M5. Performance-wise, this camera has a lot going for it. Image files straight from the camera appeared sharp with a wide dynamic range in JPEGs and plenty of detail accessible in raw files.” They also tested the 12-50mm lens (Click here): “On the E-M5, the review lens produced a good set of results in our Imatest tests, which proved it capable of matching the performance of the camera’s sensor. The highest resolution figures were recorded between f/5.6 and f/8”
And to finish a review by a declared Micro Four Thirds skeptic at Camerazealot (Click here): “after having it in my hands over the weekend, I am very happy to state that it really was the best choice for my intended use. It is fast, compact and highly customizable. The image quality is improved, and the AF speed has definitely lived up to its advanced billing. The styling and functionality are superb, and even the little clip-on flash unit works well. It is an absolute perfect fit for my needs, with the added bonus of using it with legacy lenses.” ….Skepsis gone I guess? 🙂
