Pro photog giving up much DSLR gear for this!,
This review is from: Olympus OM-D E-M5 16MP Live MOS Interchangeable Lens Camera with 3.0-Inch Tilting OLED Touchscreen [Body Only] (Black) (Electronics)
The Oly OMD has to be one of the best cameras I've ever owned.
I've been a professional photographer for 25+ years traveling the world shooting for magazines and stock.
I own Nikon,Leica and Canon pro gear.In many situations the OLY aces past the Nikon D7000 in focus and image quality.
I mainly use the prime lenses 45mm 1.8,Leica 25mm 1.4,14mm 2.5 and only use zooms when I have no other choice.
By the end of the year,when I am confident the OLY can be used in all photo situations I cover,I will be selling off my massive collection of DSLR gear.
This camera really is that good!

Thank you for a great review. I got the camera and love it but will never get rid of my canon glass.

Pro here as well. I sold my 5D Mark 2 and backup 7D and have been able to use the OMD in every situation plus continue to improve my skill set due to the incredible portability. This camera goes with me everywhere. I also chose the prime lenses you opted for and couldn't be happier! The image quality and versatility of the RAW files is the closest thing to film I've ever seen in digital.
