Delighted to see the legendary ‘OM’ name on the new system of mirrorless digital cameras from Olympus.
OLYMPUS describe the EM-5 as the next ‘epoch’ of interchangeable lens digital cameras continuing the good work of the PEN series, started three years with the EP-1. I can’t wait to get my hands on one.
These cameras use an electronic viewfinder with 100% field of view. Having tested the EP-2 a few years ago, the viewfinder is extraordinary and great fun to use. Click on the E-3 and EP-2 link in the rght-hand column for some images and descriptions.
My career with OLYMPUS OM began with the manual OM-1n, OM-2n and OM-4ti. I’m keeping my OM-4ti until the end of time. Lightweight with superlative build quality and top-notch glass the OM-D is perpetuating this pedigree and I’m sure it’s going to be a hit.
Best to let OLYMPUS tell the story. See the website links below.
