Experiments with Olympus OM-D E-M1 continues. Though it is noisier when shooting with high ISO settings compared to 5D Mark III, the overall shooting experience has been very satisfying. The electronic view finder is really helpful when setting the correct shutter speed, aperture or ISO during a rock concert because you can actually see how's the photo going to look like when captured to a memory card. Believe me, it's really helpful.
I've been using M.Zuiko Digital ED 12mm f/2.0 and M.Zuiko Digital ED 75mm f/1.8. Both lenses seems to autofocus fast and fairly accurate, though I have had some what more blurry shots with 75mm. But the 12mm is a really good indoor rock concert lens and I can highly recommend it.
The size of the camera is very suitable for concert photography. I really enjoyed holding a camera that is a way lighter than my Canon equipment. When shooting outdoor festivals it will be much nicer to walk between stages with lighter camera gear. And when shooting outdoors, you don't even have to use high ISO settings, so noise-allergic photographers will be very pleased.
I have really enjoyed shooting with OM-D E-M1 and it is a camera worth considering as a second rock music camera body next to DSLR camera. Or hell, why not even the first choice.
