    And it's wonderful. A bit small but much better with the grip. EVF is superb with bright clear detail. We took some shots at 1600ISO in very dim conditions and the images were clean and sharp. Very quick AF and amazing detail in the images. There is a new filter to play with as well as all the usual suspects. Great camera and will be on my shopping list for next year!

    P.S We played with one of only 2 units in the UK.

    Thanks for the report, it seems you really enjoyed playing with the EM-5. I imagine you used the 12-60mm?

    Thanks Andy. If you could, can you put a PL25 on the OMD and see if it does the rattle-snaking sounds (from the aperture blades) like it did on the Pens? Thank you!!

    Willo: Demo model (production model) was at Park Cameras, Burgess Hill which is where I work. :2thumbs:

    Julien: Yes we used the 12-50mm which is a very good kit lens plus we used the grip which makes a small ish camera feel awesome in my hands!!

    Armanius: Too late now I'm afraid. We won't see another untill we get shop stock which will be at the end of May at the earliest!!

    It really is a wonderful camera and I really want one. So I'm gonna save for one.
