The Complete Guide to Olympus' Om-d E-m1 by Gary L. Friedman
Comparing this to another well-known author's E-M1 guide is like comparing chalk and cheese - Gary's is the big cheese - it is excellent. Very readable; excellent layout; you get the feeling that it's been written by somebody who has really explored the camera.

Highly recommended
