Re: Advice 2nd hand M5 Mk1 or New OM10

The E-M5 Mk1 is a fine camera and I won't be parting with mine any time soon. However it has not been actively supported for some time and the firmware features show this. If you can get one at a bargain price then go for it but an E-M10 Mk II will offer you a more up to date and rounded shooting experience. Others have mentioned a second hand E-M1 Mk1 and prices on this are falling so worth a look. Start with the for sale section of this forum to get an idea of prices.
