The E-5 replacement has arrived!

I've been eagerly waiting to replace my 3 year old E-5 with the much anticipated E-7, but alas, it never came. What came out of the Olympus lab was something even better - the E-M1. An OM-D with the intent of replacing the E-5.

I placed a pre-order and have finally collected the camera. One word - AWESOME!

The look, the feel, the pairing with my treasured 4/3 lenses are amazing. The auto focus speed is decent enough for me, and I will definitely be testing them out really soon!
