Well, I did just that after several m4/3rds bodies. I'm convinced that I can produce pretty much what I always have before on any other APS-C camera and although I have a hankering for the Pentax K30 I doubt that I would get anything much better out of it unless I used it in really low light and I try to avoid that whenever possible anywayThis thread almost persuades me to return to m4/3rd.
Archiver, Did you see the DPReview article on E-M5 settings:...I'm starting to learn to shoot with the real-time histogram, something I've never done before.
I actually find it incredibly useful. I always find histograms require too much thought and interpretation, but the "blinkies" that Olympus has used are really helpful to me. I like 'em more in manual focus than in auto focus because you can have them turned on while you ALSO have the smallest focus box, but when I'm using manual focus I have the blinkies turned on and I can see whether something is blown or blacked out in an area of the shot its OK in or if its gonna be a problem and a quick turn of the EV comp dial (which I have the rear dial set to) is all it takes to find the right balance or to get rid of the blinkies altogether if they're all either high or low. I never really liked or used guides like this in the past, but sometime in the past couple of Olympus cameras I stumbled onto it and found it really helpful...Archiver, Did you see the DPReview article on E-M5 settings:

You can set the camera to show you highlights and shadows as an alternative to the histogram. I tried that and found it mildly distracting, but I might try it again. You can adjust the sensitivity of each setting.
