To my surprise, I received an email last night from Olympus that my pre-ordered Olympus OM-D E-M1 has shipped. It wasn’t supposed to be available until October. I should have it by Friday, probably late in the day.
I plan to shoot with it over the weekend and compare it with some of my other cameras, including the Canon 5D Mark III.
Some people have commented in forums that my comparison with the 5D doesn’t make sense. That the full-frame sensor of the Canon will outperform the Olympus by such a margin that keeping the Canon for critical work is a no-brainer. I want to test that.
If you want me to test anything in particular or do an unboxing video (not my spiel, but for you I’d do it), let me know.
