Earlier this week, I published a summary of information and videos about the new Olympus OM-D E-M5 micro four thirds mirrorless camera. Courtesy of Digital Photography Review, you can also now read some hands-on impressions. Notably, DP Review writes, "The camera is notably well-set up for eye-level shooting, indeed its ergonomics are comparable to high-end DSLRs such as the Pentax K-5. The two overlapping top-plate dials offer quick access to the main exposure controls - shutter speed, aperture and exposure compensation - and can be customized to work exactly as you'd like. The four-way buttons on the rear are used directly to move the AF point around the frame - a notably quicker solution than on other mirrorless cameras with EVFs such as the Sony NEX-7 or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G3 (at least in its default setup)."
Also worth taking into account: "First impressions of the camera's high ISO output are pretty favorable too. It looks like the E-M5 should be quite useable at ISOs where the 12MP PENs would really start to struggle."
