We need a new forum for mirrorless cameras! The EM-5 is neither a DSLR nor a cosumer digicam. I guess you would call it a DSLM (digital single lens mirrorless) camera.

I just returned from three weeks in Cozumel, playing with my new EM-5 in a Nauticam housing. Here's a link to the trip report and many, many images taken with the camera.

Nice. The 10mm Subsee with the 14-42 is quite surprising. DOF is amazing for compared to the usual with the 10mm Subsee.

I agree with a new forum for mirorless camera users !! I had also the opportunity to do a small contest in France , with friends , but they did not knew in what category include my camera as there is a contest especially for compact and two others one for wide angle and one for macro , of course I wanted to go in the compact contest as I wanted to use my 12-50 ( hoping that the port and gear soon arrive ..) ..So compact or DSLR for competitions ??

Anyway , thank to share your pictures , they are very good !!

(I've posted some also a few days ago ) .

Really good work Jim! Thanks for the report. I agree that it would be good to separate the mirror less, single lens, digitals into another category in WP, but this falls on deaf ears with the administration.

As far a photo competition, this camera IQ is on par or better than many DSLRs.
