Done and done. Not only is our third and final Shooter's Report installment published, going in-depth with this camera's HD video recording and wireless connectivity features, our full Olympus E-M10 review is complete as well, with our full list of pros and cons and, of course, our final conclusion. 

Olympus lowered the price barrier of entry to the OM-D line of cameras with the E-M10, combining features of the enthusiast-oriented E-M5 and professional flagship E-M1 cameras into a lightweight and affordable camera. Bringing over the E-M1's powerful TruePic VII image processor and a similar 16.1-megapixel, AA-filterless sensor, along with the E-M5's compact, retro-esque design, the new Olympus E-M10 packs a lot of powerful, high-end features into a compact, lightweight and budget-friendly camera. 

For someone looking to upgrade to an interchangeable lens camera system and aren't sure if they want or need the big bulk of a DSLR, the Olympus E-M10 and the Micro Four Thirds system is a excellent choice. Both the E-M5 and E-M1 before it tested very well in both image quality and performance, but does this new "OM-D for all" fit right in as a member of the OM-D family?
