Sensor Review
Introduction | Olympus OM-D E-M1 sensor performance | Olympus OM-D E-M1 versus competition | Conclusion

In replacing the E-5, the introduction of the E-M1 heralds a new direction for Olympus and their MFT models. The larger, pro-grade body should appeal to existing E-3 and E-5 users, while the addition of the new focusing system grants unrestricted access to the firm’s range of high-performance, PD-AF based Four Third lenses. At the same time, Olympus has successfully integrated the system without degrading sensor IQ. Surely, that’s good news for prospective buyers.
