Olympus OM-D E-M5 real world RAW and JPEG samples to download

Forget the test images, here are some every day ones showing the E-M5 at work

Our rather hurriedly prepared comparative test images from last week have raised more questions than they have answered. Since then I have been without an E-M5 but I have just received a different sample, this time with a battery grip.

As the recent sunny weather in this part of the UK is about to turn cloudy and wet from tomorrow I set aside all plans for my Sunday and spent the day photographing on and around the Grand Union Canal near our office in Apsley, Hemel Hempstead. Below is a gallery of selected images from today plus some earlier shots. Both camera JPEGs and RAW files are provided for you to download. The JPEGs are NOT noise-filtered.

I also used a wide variety of lenses, both m.Zuiko Micro Four Thirds and Zuiko Digital Four Thirds types via an adapter, including the big ZD 300mm f/2.9, ZD 12-60 SWD, ZD 50mm Macro, ZD 50-200 SWD, m.Zuiko 12-50, m.Zuiko 45mm f/1.8, and the m.Zuiko 12mm f/2.0.

These images are copyrighted. Please don't post the whole or portions of any of these images on other websites. I hope these images will provoke discussion on other sites, but If you disrespect copyright and post these images on other sites then you will stifle debate and discussion on the site that these images originated from. That's bad for us and could jeopardise our long term future.

Also, please be selective when you download these images as these are very large files and we don't want to over-burden server and deny access to others unnecessarily. Thanks for your cooperation!
