Olympus OM-D E-M5

Digital Photography Review reports: [edited]

With the launch of the E-M5, Olympus harks back to one of its most fondly-remembered camera systems - the Olympus OM range of 35mm SLRs. For reasons of clarity, it should be stated that this isn't a continuation of that line - the OM-D models won't be SLRs and are based around Micro Four Thirds, not OM lens mounts.

The camera is built around a 16MP Four Thirds sensor, almost certainly the same one seen in Panasonic's DMC-G3. The company has also totally reworked its built-in image stabilization system. The new design is described as 5-axis (translational movement vertically and horizontally, and rotational movement around 3 axes), in contrast to the previous system that only corrected for up/down and left/right rotation.

Price: $999.00 (body only)
