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
Summary: The Olympus OM-D E-M5 has a wealth of features sure to impress most keen photographers, enthusiast or those new to micro four-thirds cameras. Excellent photos, good build quality and a blistering autofocus make the Olympus OM-D E-M5 one to check out.
Summary: Olympus definitely has a winner on its hand with this mirrorless ILC. It has a great set of features, a dedicated electronic viewfinder - which is a boon, great ergonomics, beautiful image quality, impressive low light performance among other things. It is priced at a whopping Rs. 77,000 with the kit lens and you get a 16GB San Disk card free.
