I am very new to Olympus, having moved from Nikon D700 (great system, but wanted something new).

I rented an E-30 for 4 days then put in my order for E-5 and managed to get it early :)

I use the camera with 50-200 SWD and 14-54 II and the FL-50 flash.

IQ - Camera is very sharp, I get great shots out of my lenses just as I was getting with the E-30. Both my 14-54II and 50-200 perform excellently.

Autofocus - AF-C performance on the 50-200 is better than the E-30 for sure - With the E-30 AF-C seemed a bit hesitant at times, on the E-5 it's mostly on-point (rarely it will "lock up" and not attempt to AF-C to infinity, but these are difficult shots, and once I MF the lens back into range it snaps back into action). AF-C with the 14-54 II is pointless- still too slow to track anything. AF-S with the 14-54 II seems to be a bit more sure than the E-30, which would stair-step its focus more than the E-5 does.

The high-res screen is great, the art filters are fun to play with, especially since you can see their effects on the live-view, which is very cool.

Controls seem about right, though I don't like how far to the left the AEL/AFL button is located.

The battery still doesn't have a % usage or "shot counter", this system is so archaic compared to Nikon/Sony/Canon (I've owned/shot them all).

Noise, in VERY LIMITED testing that I've done, is about comparable to my Nikon D90 - which is pretty good I guess, but nothing earth-shattering. Don't expect to get amazing performance, but in decent lighting, ISO 1600 is just fine to use (about what D90 does). Note that ISO 3200 is labeled "extended" on the camera's LCD when you change to this ISO. I avoid ISO 3200 / 6400 unless I seriously need the shot.

Moire - So far I haven't experienced any, and I've shot photos that would have induced it otherwise. Note that I'm shooting RAW using Olympus Viewer 2.1, as Lightroom 3 doesn't support the E-5 yet.

Live View - Still does mirror flop, won't take the photo without dropping the mirror (boo!).

Video - Decent I guess, I really rarely use it - but I've enjoyed the clips I've done so far.

Overall - A good camera. I think overpriced for what it is, especially compared to other, competitive models from other manufacturers, but I wanted it early so I paid the price :)
Still, it's the only swivel-LCD, weather-sealed camera I know of :)

        Comments about Olympus E-5 DSLR Camera (Body Only):

        I have a slightly over-developed loyalty to Olympus, from my early days with the OM1, through the various OM numbers, and now the E5 to add to my E1 and E3.

        I am mostly a bird photographer so I feel like I have lucked out with the Olympus 4/3 system which gives me double the reach for a fairly compact lens and camera arrangement.

        There was nothing wrong with the E3, but if anything, the picture quality (not just pixels) is even better with he E5. I doubt I will use the video function, and shoot mostly through the viewfinder, so do not use the screen very much, but the larger size helps in reviewing 'in the field'.

        All-in-all, until there is an E7 or whatever, this is state-of-the-art, and although they are hard to convert, my Nikon and Canon friends cannot help but admire my set up.

        Comments about Olympus E-5 DSLR Camera (Body Only):

        I have had the E-5 for quite a while now and have had 4 other E series (E300,E500,E510,E-3)in the past. All except the E300 are still in use by myself or someone I know and all are in perfect condition, each of the older cameras have in excess of 50,000 photos on each one and still going strong.
        The E-5 does a great job and keeps the noise pretty well under control, even at ISO 6400 (situation dependant) with the right lenses. I have the F2 14-35 and 35-100, 50-200, 14-54, ect.... The lenses make a huge difference on the photos and Zuiko Pro Series are the BEST.
        I have taken photos at 10 pm under stadium lighting whith race cars going past at 60-80 mph (small oval track) with NO Flash. Then I use DXO or Photoshop to clean up the minor noise and have photos far better than the track photographers using flash with their Cannon's and Nikon's (I have seen there photos).
        I have used my camera's (E-3 & E-5) in rain, under water falls and in hail storms (using only the water resistant Pro Lenses and Fl-50 flash attached), I go on 5-10 hour hikes in the mountains with it and it takes whatever happens without any signs of wear.

          Comments about Olympus E-5 DSLR Camera (Body Only):

          First time out with the new E-5 was for a school musical and the ISO resolution at 2500 is amazing! Menus are easy to navigate and the function buttons and wheels make changing settings on the fly easy and almost effortless.

          I have not used the video capabilities. My ONLY annoyance is the battery level indicator. (I know - picky!) It only stays visible on the top screen, and is tucked into the bottom right corner and is difficult to see. I wish it would stay visible on the rear LCD screen.

            I've only had this camera for a couple of weeks but have used it enough to know that I love it. I like all the direct buttons for things like white balance, exposure mode etc. You can do all these things from the menu but it's nice to be able to use the short cuts. As far as I'm concerned, it lives up very well to all the claims that Olympus has made about it and the improvements over previous models are too numerous to list.

            I purchased the Olympus e5 as an upgrade to my Olympus e510. In every way this camera out performs every camera I own. The picture quality is exceptional. It does well in low light conditions where the e510 struggled. Its very low noise is a major improvement over previous models. I photograph fast paced sports dog events and needed a camera that handle the sometimes extreme conditions. The Olympus e5 is the perfect choice.

            Excellent 4/3 camera much better noise control over previous models. Excetionally sharp images with very fast accurate autofocusing. I have other Olympus E series cameras and this is much better than the E-3 and E-30 both of which I still use and liked very much. I thought I would not be interested in the art filters but I have taken full advantage of the "Dramatic Filter". Now it is a must have.

                Comments about Olympus E-5 DSLR Camera (Body Only):

                Well, well, well... I love cameras, most of them! My last true workhorse was a Sony A700, and a Pentax K20 before it. So for one reason or another, you may start using an Olympus E-620 like I recently did, or one of those trendier but quite slower Pen and think: "Wow, these are very competent, well-made products for their respective price!?". I thought so too, even compared to much pricer DSLRs; that's until I tried (and unavoidably fell in love with) their great leader, by far the sexiest of all digital Superstars: the Olympus E-5!

                Gorgeous colors, brisk AF as well as shutter responses, large and bright *traditional* pentaprism viewfinder, astonishing robustness, fluid handling, clear LCDs, easy menu operation, better-than-D7000/60D performance up until ISO 1600 (far enough in any case), a very l-o-n-g battery life, and last but not least a privileged access to all of the impressive Zuiko 4/3 beauties, be it the ultra-fast SWD lenses or the Imager-AF, contrast-based lenses!!!

                So glad I have at last found a real diamond in the rough...

                  Comments about Olympus E-5 DSLR Camera (Body Only):

                  I upgraded from the E3 and I couldn't be happier. Photos are noticably crisper and clearer. It seems everything from the E3 is compatable, which is nice. Batteries, battery charger, Power Battery Holder (HLD-4) are all compatable. A few buttons have been moved to make room for the excellent LCD monitor, but navigating around the controls is quite simple. I don't take alot of video. The only thing I can say about it is I wish there was a way to shoot video throught the view finder. You have to use the monitor and shoot video with live view. I've been an amature photographer for quite a few years and using the monitor to frame a scene is really awkward for me. Other than that, I can't find anything I don't like about the camera. They also got rid if the xD card slot and replaced it with a SD slot, which was good to see! If you're looking for a really good DSLR, I HIGHLY recommend this camera.

                  Comments about Olympus E-5 DSLR Camera (Body Only):

                  Through disappointments in my Canon 40D and lens incompatibilities even with supposed Canon fixes, I stumbled upon the 4/3rds system with my Leica Digilux 3 that I absolutely love for nature and wildlife shooting. However it does have some limitations. It is too slow for low light and fast sports indoors and is not weatherproof. That is where the E-5 comes into play. Now I have a wonderful, rugged, easy to use, multifunctional camera body that does all of this plus has interchangeable lenses with my Leica 4/3rds system. Yes, it does have some noise at high ISO but I shoot raw and adjust customized noise reduction in photoshop. It's also nice to have a manufacturers top line camera without spending a fortune, the ability to buy 3 levels of quality glass without paying for image stabilization for every lens (built in body stabilization) and some splash proof lenses to boot. Olympus, please keep 4/3rds alive as it does what it was designed to do and better than the competition!

                  I started a photography business 8 years ago and started with a Nikon, but quickly switched to Olympus. I have owned multiple models, but the E-5 is the best so far. Color, tone, and photo quality is great! The only pit-fall have found so far is the LCD screen dims too quickly and it is not consistant as to how long it stays bright; other than that, it is awesome!

                    Comments about Olympus E-5 DSLR Camera (Body Only):

                    I've ben really impressed with the image quality of the camera since I purchased it. Focus is fast with the 12-60 & 50-200. Even the 50mm seems faster. OVF is much brighter and larger than previous 4/3 cameras. I normally don't shoot much above iso 800 or so, and haven't noticed any noise in some good sized prints I've made. Maybe at 100% on screen at close range some grain its visible, but I didn't see it in any real world situations...

                    Have used it out I'm the rain with no issues, and love using the articulating monitor to get some really unique framing/views, resulting in shots I wouldn't have gotten with a fixed screen.

                      I have been using the Olympus E system since before the E1 professional camera was released. I am totally biased. AS a camera I find it's ease of use compelling, the lack of icons refreshing, two dial control is lovely and menus easy to navigate. The shortcuts are well signposted, on this camera.
                      I use this camera both professionally as a photographer and as a teaching aid as a college lecturer.
                      Negative things.... I'll have to come back to you on that one, but hey I admit I'm biased
