Olympus OMD E M10 First Look by What Digital Camera.

This morning I posted a big E-M10 and lens roundup in this post: https://www.43rumors.com/live-olympus-e-m10-and-lenses-announced. A special page with all new products can be seen at Amazon (Click here).

Now let’s take a closer look to the first reviews:

Cameras Reviewed is the first site posting a full E-M10 review. They write:

Even though this version of the sensor includes an AA filter, we noticed no appreciable lack of sharpness when compared to the filter-less sensor in the E-M1.
Continuous shooting is a cinch thanks to the inherited E-M1 processor. Olympus promises 8 frames per second in continuous shooting, and we found that the E-M10 delivered; we measured exactly 8 fps in our standard test..

Quesabesde (translation here) is the only site in the world that got the permission to share some E-M10 RAW samples. And they checked if the E-M10 can outperform the E-M5 (ISO comparison table can be see here):

As expected, at 200 ISO there is no difference. But the improvement at ISO 6,400 is evident both in terms of reducing image noise and the level of detail that it retains.

DLSRmagazine (translation here) is the only site having tested the new 25mm f/1.8 lens (resolution table can be seen here):

As you can be seen from the resolution graph the lens offers a very high quality straight from the full f/1.8 aperture, which peaks at f/2.8. This is accompanied by good contrast, almost negligible astigmatism, limited chromatic aberration and almost absent vignetting and distortion.

For the reviewer the lens price is ok because you absolutely get what you pay for!
