It is not readily apparent on Amazon, but until, 2 December 2013, Olympus has 2 promotions going on for this camera. The first is order this camera and either the MMF-3 (needed to shoot 4/3 lenses on the EM1) or the FL-300R at the same time and get reimbursed for the cost of the accessory. The second is order the EM1 and the 12-40mm and get $200 back. Both of these promotions can be used with one camera purchase. I have put the links in the comments section.

If I were only allowed to own one camera but could choose any camera I wanted in the world, the EM1 would be the camera I would choose (The GX7 would be the next if the EM1 was not available). This camera is an almost faultless camera that is a real joy to hold and use. Oh, it also makes amazing photographs. It is one of the best built cameras around. It feels nice and solid and every switch has the perfect feel to it. There is no better built or nicer feeling camera in any price range. While I am more of a function over form type of person, the jewel like quality of this camera does up the emotional joy of using this camera.

Unfortunately, I need to digress here to address two ridiculous arguments I read all over the web and then hear parroted by people who have no idea what they are talking about. I hate wasting time and if you are not interested then skip down to the asterisk and the review will continue there.

The first bit of misinformation deals with what I call sensor envy. It goes something like this: m43 is a fine stop gap measure until you can afford a so called "full-frame" sensor and thus are able to become a real photographer. This is a pretty complex issue so I have put a great deal of detail in a discussion on the subject at the end of this review.

Style Name: Body Only Verified Purchase
I have thoroughly used and reviewed this camera over the past several weeks (review sample from Olympus) and have been wowed, shocked and surprised at the results. I originally thought this would be an E-M5 with a better build, feel and faster AF and at the end of the day I found it to be much more. Due to the lack of an AA filter, the IQ has indeed been enhanced. Images are sharper/crisper and the high ISO has also been improved. I have written 5700 words on this camera and shared a ton of images as well as a comparison against a Leica M. At the end of the day this camera is so good, I ordered one from Amazon for myself.

Below is my "FInal Conclusion" from the full review I posted on my website on the E-M1:

Well here we are in 2013 and the choices for all of us crazy enthusiasts are plentiful and excellent. We finally have a definitive Micro 4/3 camera body that is pro level and can do just about anything one needs it to do and do it in any weather. As always, I review cameras from an enthusiasts point of view in a real world way. There are things I do not even get into like Flash, because I have not used a flash in 14 years. I am anti-flash even though I know it is good to have on some occasions. But as an enthusiast and a passionate photographer who has seen it all and used them all, I can say with confidence that the OM-D E-M1 is one of the best cameras "as a whole" that I have ever reviewed. It is superb. Yes, there are others with better overall IQ and others with better high ISO but as a whole, speaking of the whole package, nothing else has come close.

You have seen me rant and rave about a few different camera models over the year. Leica's and Sony's for the most part.

It appears that current bayer sensor technology has hit a ceiling. The E-M1's image improvement over the E-M5 is not as big of leap as the E-M5 was over the 12mp PEN series and Sony's new 36mp camera does not improve upon Nikon's D800 (Sony) sensor. However, there is much more to cameras than sensors. With the exception of the D4, I previously owned every semi-pro and professional Nikon camera since the D2 and I now shoot with Canon and not one client has complained because they can see I am getting 2-stops less dynamic range than I used to when I shot with D800. Camera brand means very little to me, they are just tools. As of now, this is the best m4/3 camera in the market and one of the best mirrorless cameras period. For video, the Panasonic GH3 is the best choice (See comments). ***Update Panasonic GH4 is now the king of video

Both my primary and backup cameras are full frame DSLRs. If the E-M1 had two SD slots I would have bought two and made it my new system of choice, so for now, it is my 2nd backup, my travel, studio, and just about everything else camera. Below I will weigh its pros and cons against the E-M5 and a few other DSLRs.

APOLOGIES FOR SUCH A LONG REVIEW. I HAVE CONSIDERED SHORTENING IT.

::::::::::::::::::: Pros :::::::::::::::::::

SIZE:
It is tiny, any reports about m4/3 losing its way by creating such a large camera are greatly exaggerated. Reading the dimensions online does not compare to actually holding it, any smaller and it would be too small.

DYNAMIC RANGE:
On par with Canon full-frames, ETTR (Expose to the right) is very important to get the best files, more so than Canon and especially Nikon FF DSLRs.
