Imaging Resource
16 September 2014
  • Conclusion: Many pros flocked to the Olympus OM-D E-M5 as a lighter, more compact alternative to their big, bulky DSLRs.

  • 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...
  • Cons: Larger and heavier than most compact system cameras, Lack of AA filter means moiré can be an issue (but seemingly little worse than the OM-D E-M5), Physical control customization and menu navigation has a high learning curve, Touchscreen controls not very helpful for navigating menus and changing...

24 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

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.

12 February 2014
  • 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.
