Olympus E-M1

16.1 megapixel, Compact System Camera, Non-Zoom

The Olympus E-M1 builds upon the Micro Four Thirds legacy of the outstanding OM-D E-M5, adding not only a ton of features geared for pros and advanced enthusiasts, but also an on-chip, phase-detect autofocusing system that works remarkably well with Olympus Four Thirds DSLR lenses. The OM-D E-M1 offers a solid, weatherproof build, an outstanding electronic viewfinder, tons of physical controls and an advanced Wi-Fi system. Most importantly, the camera delivers excellent image quality for its class, even at high ISOs, as well as blazing performance that rivals top DSLRs.

16.1 megapixel, Compact System Camera, Non-Zoom

A follow-up to the first Micro Four Thirds OM-D series camera, the Olympus E-M5 II has a tough act to follow. Absolutely bursting at the seams with the latest technology -- including a unique high resolution mode that takes it far beyond what its sensor should be capable of -- this 16-megapixel shooter doesn't disappoint. We think this could be the best argument yet for the Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera. Find out why in our in-depth Olympus E-M5 II review!
