Here's some shots I took with it over the weekend. All were touched up in PS.

Image

My wife making jewelry in the garage. This is at ISO 1600, no flash.

Image

Sleeping cats, with flash at ISO 200.

These next one's were taken at the Farmer's Market yesterday.

Image

Got to be NC! This was in the lobby at the Farmer's Market Restaurant. ISO 400, I think.

Image

PItcher Plants. Need a better lens for macro!

Image

Tomatoes.

So far, I like this little camera! The kit lens isn't as good as the one on my Canon DSLR, but I didn't expect it to be. Need to get some m43 adapters and hook up some of my Pentax glass!

You did good, Nathan. Your wife would have loved the Gem and Rock Show that was in Salem, VA over the weekend.

Glad to hear you bought an OM-D! I handled one a couple of years ago and was very impressed with its build, balance and speed

I think the Olympus kit lens is decent, but it's too slow at 3.5 at the wide end and 5.6 at telephoto. That's my primary complaint.

I really like the mirrorless cameras for using older lenses.

One thing that I found was that an older single-coated lens had much less purple fringing than the newer multi-coated version when shot wide open.

I'm going to make a separate post on ILC lens adapters in a separate post so I don't hijack this thread.

I have never used the kit lens that's on your EM10. My EM5 ('old' model) came with the 12-50mm EZ zoom kit lens. That is really not a bad lens at all, although a bit slow at f/3.5-6.3. It's a sealed, weatherproof lens and especially intended for video with its silent focus and zoom (manual and servo). I have seen lots of great pictures all over the web made with that lens, which blew me away - especially the macro shots made with it. My skills don't reach that far...
You may have a look at the tiny but spectacularly sharp M.Zuiko primes, especially the 45mm and 12mm (I have both) and the 60mm/2.8 Macro which apparently is one of the best macro lenses available in any format, and the 75mm/f1.8 a great tele for candids.
I have not been following their latest lens models, but did notice that Olympus now has quite a range of pro zoom lenses as well.
Enjoy the camera!

I used to have an EPL-1, which came with what I'm sure is the same 14-42 that the EM10 has. I'd gotten an Olympus 17mm for it, but it was stolen along with camera a few years back. Love to have it, or a similar one, again. Maybe one day.

We're going to Yellowstone in September. I'm hoping to have saved up enough for either a better zoom, a standard prime, or a telephoto zoom by then. Wish me luck!

Congratulation! It's a lovely camera. I got the OMD EM5 last year and had a lot of fun using it!
I also has some brand new lens for the system on sale now. If you are interested I'll give you the best deal :-).
