Olympus OM-D E-M5 review

theverge.com
7 January 2014
  • Summary: Micro Four Thirds cameras are coming fast and furious, and getting better and more technically impressive all the time. For its latest offering, however, Olympus looked backward for inspiration rather than forward. The OM-D E-M5's design harkens back to the 1970's, to Olympus' old OM-1 film SLR.
  • Pros: Excellent image and video quality, Blistering performance, Extremely attractive
  • Cons: Expensive for a Micro Four Thirds camera, Smaller sensor than most $1,000-plus cameras

  • Summary: The high-resolution sensor of the E-M5 delivers quality that rivals DSLRs. It shows very low image noise until ISO 1600 and remains usable up to ISO 12800 for mid-size prints and 25600 for small ones. The exposure system is really good and automatic white-balance is great. Color accuracy is not perfect but not entire off either. Although there are some quirks to the E-M5, it is the most advanced mirrorless camera available with only much larger competitors.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, Very good metering, Reliable Automatic White-Balance, Superb built-in stabilization, Virtually no shutter-lag, Fast contrast-detect AF, Good shot-to-shot speed, Very responsive, Excellent automatic, Unique, Highly customizable interface, Instant video recording, Excellent build quality
  • Cons: Poor color accuracy, Low-contrast EVF, Not always, Modal Exposure-Compensation, Some tiny, Uncomfortable eyelets, Poorly placed tripod mount, Low battery life, Rear control-dial uncomfortably high
