I've got mine, too. Nothing decent to show for, yet. I haven't been able to go out and do a proper shoot with it. But this weekend I should be able to get something decent.

This thread almost persuades me to return to m4/3rd.

Found out the other day that the OM-D is stronger than I originally thought. While shooting background plates with my Canon 1DX, I forgot that I had left one of my OM-Ds on the floor of the front seat in our truck, opened the door and the camera fell out onto some hard dirt. Surprisingly nothing happened to the camera everything seems fine, tough little camera.

Well, I did just that after several m4/3rds bodies. I'm convinced that I can produce pretty much what I always have before on any other APS-C camera and although I have a hankering for the Pentax K30 I doubt that I would get anything much better out of it unless I used it in really low light and I try to avoid that whenever possible anyway :)

There are some things I like the OM-D for but I still prefer shooting with the XPro1, low light or not the files just look smoother, metering is better, the Af is slower with the XPro but accuracy is better, the main things I like better about the OM-D is the IBIS, AF speed and lenses selection and I guess now because of the ruggedness, as well

I find the metering on the X Pro1 quite difficult. If I set it for spot and centre weighted it seems not to make much difference. I feel as though I know what I'm going to get with the EM5.

I do not have mine with me but I do not think there is a center-weighted position; there is average, spot and multi (it analyzes the whole scene), if I remember correctly. I find the Multi position to be pretty accurate most of the time, and does well in backlit contrasty scenes, this is the are where my OM-DZs give me trouble, they tend to underexpose and misread backlight or hard contrast scenes. The Fuji’s only miss step in metering for me is a tendency to overexpose slightly

Bob, I found a similar issue with the OM-D's metering. When I brought this up on another forum, it was suggested that the OM-D meters to protect the highlights in high contrast or bright situations. Turning the LCD's brightness down a couple of clicks helps give a more accurate depictions of the final image, and I'm starting to learn to shoot with the real-time histogram, something I've never done before. In the past I've always just eyeballed the screen to see what it is probably going to look like.
