And now to the latest E-M1 review written by CameraLabs (Click here). As usual it’s a very long, detailed and interesting review. But I think that single part says it all:

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the Olympus OMD EM1 is a triumph, a highly satisfying camera that I can highly recommend to anyone who wants semi-pro performance and handling without the heft of a traditional DSLR. If you’re looking for a high-performance mirrorless camera or DSLR, the EM1 should be high on your shortlist.

There is nothing to add :)

(FT4) New Olympus compact zoom similar in size and performance like the Panasonic.

Share

Also Olympus will follow Panasonic lens miniaturization route and along the E-M10 and 25mm f/1.8 lens they will also launch a very compact zoom. I have been told size and image quality are very close to the Panasonic. One source said that the major difference is that the new Olympus zoom has a built-in protection cap just like the lens used by the Olympus Stylus 1.

No info about exact focal length and price yet. But I hope I will have them soon :)
