This review is from: David Busch's Olympus OM-D E-M5 Guide to Digital Photography (David Busch's Digital Photography Guides) (Paperback)
The manual Olympus provides with the camera, unfortunately, is poorly written, and does not adequately explain all of the many options this camera allows. This book covers almost all of the options in a clear manner. I only found one that Busch missed, and that was setting the direct function of the arrow keys. Busch also covers available lenses and accessories, but only those made by Olympus, not those by other makers, such as Sigma and Panasonic, which makes one wonder if Olympus subsidized the book. The book also contains a lot of information on basic photography that I found superfluous, but perhaps those who are beginners would appreciate that. I would have preferred a book that covered only the hardware more comprehensively, but this book is the only thing out there now, and was sufficient for the need. If you bought this camera, you'll do better with it if you get this book before delving into the many settings.
