Olympus E-M5 review from a video point of view (EosHD). And 2500 Euro for a E-M5 grip.


Journey (Olympus OM-D E-M5) from Andrew Reid on Vimeo.

Before to start. Be aware of mistakes on eBay. A reader pounted me out that “someone” is selling the E-M5 battery grip for 2.500 Euro (Click here to see the auction). I see those kind of “mistakes” all the time :(

UPDATE: Body only in Stock at Amazon (Click here).

Our friend Andrew from EosHD (Click here) posted an E-m5 review focusing more on the video aspects of the camera: “There are some things the OM-D E-M5 does better even in video mode than the competition including even the GH2. Unfortunately the image quality in video mode is not an all-out winner like the stills mode.

Steve Huff tested the 12-50mm kit lens: “It’s a good lens though not a GREAT “wow” lens.

DxO Optics Pro 7.5.2 gains Olympus E-M5 and Panasonic GF5 support (Dpreview).

    it´s not a mistake.. they place it so high on ebay so nobody bids for it.

    because it´s not available or in stock at the moment.

    they do that so they don´t have to remove the auction.
    it´s common ebay practice… thought i don´t like it.

    The 12-35 2.8 is shipping on Amazon USA next week, I have a delivery date of July 25.

    The OM-D needs 24 or 25fps and more bitrate (can be done via firmware?) and could be the (almost) perfect hybrid camera.

    • It sure is possible to do in Software. The question just is, are they willing to do it?

      And if they don’t… will someone make a hack?

    Hmm… I have a spare lens cap that might fit an EM-5. I’m willing to sell it for 300 Euro.

    Hey…has anyone received their OM-D rebate yet? This wait is kind of ridiculous…no?

      I got mine almost straight away… But, in Australia so different. Not having any 43 lenses, I need to sell my new mmf3 adaptor. 2,500 euros anyone?

        Go for it, but I’m busy using mine. :)
