recyled info I had been using my OMD-EM5 for a half a year before this book became available. I was really looking forward to it, hoping that it will help me understand better and use more optimally this fantastic camera. The book failed my expectations completely.Basically, this book amounts to a re-written instruction manual. Yes, it is in a bigger print than the Olympus manual and admittedly somewhat clearer. But there is nothing more than this. The remainder of the book is very generic information that seems like recycled from the author’s books on other cameras (just with “OM-D” globally inserted in the spots marked with “[INSERT CAMERA NAME HERE]“). I was hoping to get more expert insights on the use of this particular camera, advice on advanced options, interpretations – such as rationale why and when to choose specific parameters for certain less obvious settings. I had anticipated expert recommendations on different ways to expand the system, e.g., pros and cons of using legacy lenses with this particular camera, hints on useful customization setups (like the Guide to OMD-EM5 on DPReview provides), etc. Nothing like that – the book is painfully neutral, i.e., washed out of opinions (except for a recommendation of a ridiculously priced camera strap that reads like a paid advertisement). There are also factual errors – several times the book mentions a “built in flash” (looks like a poor copy editing of the generic template for a book on any camera). Overall, I do not recommend that book. Much more valuable information can be found on the web (e.g., Guide to OMD-EM5 on DPReview).

David Busch OMD E-5 User Guide Unfortunately this book leaves a lot to be desired for the price paid. Just a wee bit more informative than the user guide which I had to print off the Internet when I first bought the camera a year ago. Save your money, print the user guide off the internet and you will get about the same results. Very disappointed in the book, however highly pleased with the camera and with the Panasonic 12-35 f2.8 lens purchased to accompany it. Again, buy the Camera, buy the lens, forget the book.Good Shooting.

Excellent introduction to the OM-D EM-5 As usual like David’s other books this is a keeper. Very well written in easy to understand format. This is a great book for an absolute beginner to the Olympus OM-D camera and a valuable reference for the seasoned OM-D camera enthusiast. The Olympus manual can be quiet complex to understand. This book simplifies the manual and I like the various tips that the author offers throughout the book. I would have liked it to be a bit more detailed like his Canon DSLR series books, but I guess there only so much you can write about micro four third cameras. Overall an excellent book that will be a very valuable reference for me.
