Olympus blends E-M5 and E-5 to create OM-D E-M1 flagship ILC: Digital Photography Review

Olympus blends E-M5 and E-5 to create OM-D E-M1 flagship ILC: Digital Photography Review | Photography Gear News | Scoop.it

Olympus has announced its new OM-D E-M1 interchangeable lens camera, which is now the flagship of its Micro Four Thirds lineup. Rather than calling it the follow-up to the E-M5, Olympus says that the E-M1 is actually the 'successor' to the E-5, a Four Thirds DSLR introduced back in 2010.  


The E-M1's 16.3-megapixel Live MOS sensor has on-chip phase detection, which promises to focus legacy Four Thirds lenses (using the optional MMF-3 adapter) at much faster speeds than previous Olympus m4/3 cameras.


Other interesting features include the E-M1's large electronic viewfinder, which has a magnification of 1.48X, a touch-enabled LCD, a rugged body that is water, dust, and freezeproof, and an impressive number of customizable buttons. Wi-Fi is also included.


The OM-D EM-1 will be available in October in a body-only configuration for $1399.99 / £1299.99. Buyers in the UK can get the HLD-7 battery grip if they pre-order the camera before launch, plus the MMF-3 Four Thirds adapter if they purchase the E-M1 by the end of November.
