Olympus OM-D E-M5 Digital Camera Review
Olympus updates the OM series with the OM-D E-M5, a high-end compact system option with a great design.
The Olympus OM-D E-M5 brings back the hallowed OM line of compact SLRs from Olympus, with a design that calls directly on the spirit of the original OM-1, released in 1972. The E-M5 is a Micro Four Thirds camera, however, sporting a new Live MOS image sensor, electronic viewfinder, tilting touchscreen OLED display, and weather-sealed body. The E-M5 is designed to appeal to professional and enthusiast photographers looking for a high-end experience and performance in a body far smaller than your typical prosumer DSLR. The E-M5 is available in silver or black flavors and was slated to debut at the end of March, though Olympus is still taking pre-orders ($999 body-only), with a likely June ship date.
