      Welcome to the forum. Black Friday deals are pretty good on that kit so don't wait too long if you like it.

            a good move , I switched in sept this year due to a dodgy heart . you definitely won't go far wrong with either the m.ix or the omd1-mkii .. good luck and as you say lots of people are switching

              Hello, and welcome to the Forum.

              A good source of information is from the Olympus Learning Centre;

              https://learnandsupport.getolympus.com/

              Also, if you can get to a shop that does it...

              https://wow.olympus.eu/

              Look forward to seeing some pictures.

                  Welcome! I also switched from Nikon a few years ago - in my case D300s + 300/4, which was becoming too tiring for me. I've never looked back from Olympus (currently e-M1-ii) The silent shutter is great for wildlife and the pro-capture mode makes 'catching the moment' almost easy!


                  I was once with a tour guide who didn't know about the silent mode and admitted he had been puzzled as to why I wasn't taking any photos

                    Funnily enough while out yesterday I put my camera down on the passenger seat in the car next to my bag .. the camera was still switched on it took me about a minute to find out what the whirring noise I could here was .the shutter button was pressing on the bag ,I had around 400+ grey blank shots to delete .

                      Don't forget, there is always the superb M1ii if you find the M1x in any way a little too large or heavy.

                      Whichever you choose I'm sure you won't regret it. I haven't.

                      Oh, and welcome.

                        Welcome! I still run my Nikon D800 alongside my Olympus, but I prefer the size and weight of the Olympus system. So much so that I traded 2 of the Nikon "trinity" that I hardly used and bought the EM5 Mk3. I'm just waiting for the weather to be kind enough for me to put the new toy to good use.
                        I wont be fully dumping the Nikon as it was a birthday present for a "big" birthday, but its not getting the use it was.

                        Its a shame that humans dont come with autofocus, like cameras do!

                          Re: Hello - possible mirrorless switcher...

                          Some months ago a friend of mine asked if he could borrow my M1ii with the 40 - 150 f2.8 and x 1.4 for a days bird shooting. Although a bit 'short' compared with his Nikon kit he sold it and brought M1ii with the 300mm lens and had been totally happy on some long birding expeditions.
                          If we can get the CanNic wildlife photographers to actually try our kit I'm convinced many would consider change to Olympus
