The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mirrorless Digital Camera and M.ZUIKO 17mm f/1.8 Lens Limited Edition Bundle contains the E-M5 mirrorless Micro Four Thirds digital camera and the fast M.ZUIKO 17mm f/1.8 lens as well as a metal lens hood and metal lens cap, all packaged together in an elegant limited edition wooden box.

The OM-D E-M5 is a compact mirrorless digital camera featuring a 16.1 megapixel Micro Four Thirds size sensor and TruePic VI image processor to produce high quality still imagery and full HD 1080i video at 60fps with notable low-light sensitivity to ISO 25600. Both a 1,440k-dot electronic viewfinder and a 3.0" 610k-dot tilting OLED monitor are available for live view monitoring, image playback, and menu navigation for controlling camera settings and modes. In-camera 5-axis image stabilization is available and helps to reduce the appearance of camera shake from five directions, benefitting working in low-light conditions and with longer lenses. The E-M5 also features a magnesium and aluminum alloy body construction to offer increased durability, rigidity, and protection from dust and splashes.

The included M.ZUIKO Digital 17mm f/1.8 lens is a prime wide-angle lens that provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 34mm, making it an ideal choice for everyday shooting conditions. The bright f/1.8 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions as well as providing greater control over the focus plane for selective focus applications. The lens construction integrates two aspherical elements, one double-sided aspherical element, and a high refractive index element to help minimize chromatic aberration and improve overall image sharpness and quality. Additionally, a ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical coating) lens coating has been applied help further reduce surface reflections, lens flare, and ghosting.

Comments about Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mirrorless Digital Camera and M.ZUIKO 17mm f/1.8 Lens Limited Edition Bundle:

I'm a professional photographer who is seriously considering giving up my "professional" gear and going mirrorless. Product photography is my bread and butter right now, but I am most well known for portraits and events and I shoot a lot of weddings and features for local magazines.

I have the obvious hangups regarding going from full frame: ISO, overall quality of imagery, sharpness, functionality, heck even clients reaction to a tiny camera versus a full frame with battery grip and 70-200 on it... well I have to say so far the OM-D E5 has been nothing short of awesome!

The day after receiving it I took it along on a wedding and about halfway through I wasn't even using my DSLR. The auto-focus tracking takes a few seconds to get used to, but the image quality is amazing. ISO so good I never used flash.

The next day I had a full day of products to shoot for an international catalog. The art director loved the images. Actually went out if his way to tell me how great they were, something he hasn't done since they first hired me...

The next day my wife and I left for a week in Canada. I sent my DSLRs and lenses to be cleaned and calibrated and only brought the Oly with me... it was great! I can't tell you how happy my back was to not be lugging my other gear and lenses around like I've done on previous trips! As for the images, I have a gallery show coming up in November and am thinking of scrapping what I've set up for some landscapes from this trip... an all mirrorless show!
