The new GM5 gets DxOmarked. And in Stock now at Amazon US.

DxOgm5

The new GM5 is finally in Stock at Amazon US (Click here). And DxOmark (Click here) posted the full GM5 sensor test results:

There’s no discernable improvement in image quality over the previous GM1 model however, which is still available to buy and for a little less money, too. With a DxOMark Sensor Score of 66 the GM5 certainly puts in a respectable performance for image quality too, but if it’s the best hybrid image quality you’re after, scores from the APS-C sensors found in Sony and Samsung hybrids remain the ones to beat.

(FT5) Olympus E-M5 production ended!

Share

e-m5

I got three different reports from US and EU stores saying that they have been notified by Olympus that the E-M5 production has been ended officially by Olympus. This means stores cannot buy E-M5 stocks anymore. Say goodbye to the E-M5! Time to save money for the E-M6 which is coming the first week of February :)

I guess Olympus Japan will soon make an official statement on the production end.
