To provide photographers with a broader perspective about mobiles, lenses and cameras, here are links to articles, reviews, and analyses of photographic equipment produced by DxOMark, renown websites, magazines or blogs.
We’ve analyzed the image quality of 33 lens models, around 70% of the current range using the native MFT mount, on the new Olympus OM-D EM-10. Read onto find out which of those lenses perform best and which, if any, you should try and avoid when paired with the new camera.

The Olympus OM-D E-M10 is the third incarnation of Olympus' popular range of high-end mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras. The E-M10 boasts some impressive DNA, using the same excellent 16MP Four Thirds sensor as its E-M5 sibling. We've been shooting with it extensively over the past few weeks, hoping to find out whether this 'digital' OM is as capable as the two that preceded it. Those are two solid acts to follow - how does the OM-D E-M10 perform?
Following on from the firm’s hugely popular E-M5 and E-M1 models Olympus has introduced a new ‘entry-level’ model, the E-M10, sharing most of the features of both siblings. Read on to find out how the new model performs.
The E-M10 seems to be the poor man's version of the E-M5 and E-M1. In that regard it's okay. But for the true 'poor man' I suggest the Olympus E-PL5, it has the same performance for much less money. It doesn't have the integrated finder but is much closer to a pocketable unit. I picked up a used VF-2 viewfinder that I secure with a hairband (that's another story) and it works pretty well. It's nice to be able to remove the viewfinder when it's not needed, again making it more pocketable.
Olympus may get me to take another bite once they improve the overall performance of this sensor. They provide no reason for me to upgrade. With full frame and APS Nikon DSLRs (D600 and D3200), an Olympus E-PL5 and an iPhone I am able to get whatever - whenever.
