Olympus OM-D E-M5 Digital Camera Review$1,099.00
With the release of a new line of compact system cameras, there was a hope that Olympus might redesign their menu system in a way that isn't brutally obscure to new users. The system is the same as it is on their PEN cameras, with confusing option names and many commonly-used settings hidden inside a custom menu (that is, itself, hidden by a separate option). The camera design itself isn't bad for usability, but we'd recommend the E-M5 mostly for advanced users who will be able to look past the menu's faults and take advantage of the impressive volume of customization options that the camera offers.
