$400 Off Olympus OM-D E-M5 16MP Live MOS Interchangeable Lens Camera with 3.0-Inch Tilting OLED Touchscreen and 12-50mm Lens

The Olympus OM-D E-M5 is certainly the most capable Micro Four Thirds camera we've reviewed and arguably the most likeable mirrorless model yet. It falls down a little bit on its continuous focusing but we have absolutely no complaints about the image quality. It's small, attractive, and a pleasure to use, and its pictures are equally enjoyable.

Reasons to buy
  • Great JPEGs and generally great image quality, even at high ISO
  • Very fast autofocus with most Micro Four Thirds lenses
  • Built-in image stabilization helps increase number of sharp shots
  • Weather-sealed body
  • Good level of direct control despite small body
Things to consider
  • Focus tracking performance disappointing
  • Small controls sometimes awkward (especially with cold/gloved hands)
  • Default JPEG settings a bit keen to blur detail away
  • Several useful features hidden in complex menus
Suggested for
A wide variety of photography, particularly if you spend the time configuring it to your needs.

Not suggested for
Photography of moving subjects - the only area where it falls significantly behind a good DSLR.
