Olympus OM-D E-M1 review

Techworld
26 May 2014
  • Summary: The OM-D E-M1 is the best mirrorless camera ever from Olympus, and it's attracting interest from serious photographers who had, up until now, ignored Olympus and Micro Four Thirds technology. But the E-M1 deserves all the attention--it's the new champ in the "lightweight heavyweight" class.

Olympus OM-D E-M1 review: Micro Four Thirds camera is a lightweight heavyweight champ

Macworld
20 May 2014
  • Conclusion: If you really need need the much larger files, slightly better exposure range or low-light performance of a full-frame camera, or if you can’t live without 1024p or 1060p video, then the E-M1 may not be for you.
  • Pros: Rugged body with excellent ergonomics, Best-in-class five-axis in-body image stabilization, Highly configurable
  • Cons: Video format options lacking by comparison to competing cameras, Mediocre battery life, Rich configurability of E-M1 makes for steep learning curve

Olympus OM-D E-M1

16 May 2014
  • Conclusion: The Olympus OM-D E-M1 is a follow-up to the well-reviewed OM-D E-M5 (Est. $825 with kit lens) , and supplements it rather than replaces it. It's based on the same formula and targeted to the same audience -- pros who don't want to lug around massive DSLR kits.
  • Pros: Excellent stills quality, Lighter than DSLR cameras, Superb electronic viewfinder
  • Cons: "Kludgy" interface, Disappointing video

14 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Mirrorless cameras aren't supposed to be this good. Yet, somehow, Olympus has made a compact interchangeable lens camera so marvelous and drool-worthy that I don't even know where to begin.

  • Conclusion: Should E-M5 owners upgrade to an E-M1? Probably not, especially if they’ve got the optional battery grip. But everyone else should sell every camera they own, plus a body part and any heirlooms knocking about in the loft, and buy the new Olympus’ flagship.

  • Excerpt: Using the Olympus OM-D E-M1 (E-M1 from here on) has been a rather romantic experience, so it’s only natural for us to romanticise this review. In fact, we’re going to attempt writing this like a love story, sans the brutal Romeo-Juliet-esque ending.

2 December 2013
  • Summary: The OM-D E-M1 is one of the best current ILCs and marks a high point for the Olympus system. Extremely versatile controls, a rugged body, and a lovely EVF combine with some of the highest image quality you can get from a Micro Four Thirds camera.

  • Excerpt: The Olympus OM-D E-M1 is the flagship camera in Olympus’ Micro Four Thirds mirrorless lineup. When you pick up the camera, it certainly feels like a flagship model. The tough, magnesium alloy body is immediately apparent, as are the plentiful controls available via external buttons, dials and...

Olympus OM-D E-M1 Review

Digitaltrends
20 November 2013
  • Conclusion: We don’t understand the sometimes over-the-top positive online reaction to this capable but hardly extraordinary mirrorless camera. Yes, it certainly can capture quality stills and good 1080/30p videos. But for $1,400 body only? No way.
  • Pros: Quality 16-megapixel CSC, Excellent built-in EVF, Superior ISO capability
  • Cons: Much too expensive, Top video quality only 1080/30p, Great images, but not full-frame level

  • Conclusion: Many pros flocked to the Olympus OM-D E-M5 as a lighter, more compact alternative to their big, bulky DSLRs. It was decidedly different from the Micro Four Thirds models that came before it, featuring blazing speed, a 5-axis in-camera stabilization system and best-in-class image quality.
  • Pros: Superior pro-level, weatherproof design and build, with magnesium alloy construction, Lots of physical controls, including the 2x2 Control Dial system, with immense customizability, Excellent image quality with very good high ISO performance that rivals APS-C models, New ISO 100 setting offers lo...
