I have just bought the Olympus M5 with the lenses Olympus 45mm f/1.8 and the Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 - both lenses gets very, very fine reviews, and with the Panasonic,..... it can stay in my pocket (jacket), and that was the reason I bought it, because it should also be a camera with very fine image quality according to test/reviews - if you use good lenses, and those lenses mentioned here should be much better, than the kit-lens, so I skipped the kit-lens.

Since 2004/2005 I have only shot with Nikon DSLRS, and now I have D3x, D7000 and D40 (Infrared converted), and the way Nikon does the thing - menus, handling,ease of use is so very fine for me,whatever Nikon DSLR it is, so I have to use some time to learn this new baby to know and to use it properly.

It is NOT the way Nikon does the menus, and that I miss, and I have to use much more time to learn the camera, and I am certainly not finished yet, all is not so userfriendly, or perhaps it is just me, who is long time Nikon-user, but there are some other features, that are really good, and others could learn from that, and when you have learned all the settings (I have not yet) you can customize the camera.

I can say,with a gran of salt, because it is still new for me, - just got it 2 days ago, that the picture quality looks like close or equal to my D7000 (but of course not for sports or fast movings, here the DSLR.s wins)and the single AF for still pictures is very fast and for the time being I can say also very precise.

It looks like the vibration reduction - in-camera - also works very well. It gives a lille sound, even when you not use it, but it does not bother me.

The Olympus dust removal system is tested to be the very best - according to a test I read some time ago, where all the well known brands very testet - can not remember the nameof the site,

There was one site who calls it the very best 4/3 camera over all others, even over the Nex:

but I think this review here is more in dept, buy they also call it very good (gold reward):
