E-M1X Long Term Review

After almost 5 years of extensive first hand experience, and rigorous use, it’s time for me to do an E-M1X long term review. This review follows a number of other E-M1X reviews that I’ve done over the past number of years. These include: E-M1X 4 Year Review, E-M1X Love, E-M1X 2 Year Review, E-M1X Twelve Month Review, and E-M1X 6 Month Review.

This is a hands-on, real life review based on years of in-the-field experience. You won’t have to read any specifications regurgitated from a manual or spec sheet. If you want that material, it is readily available on the internet.
