Picking up where the Olympus OM-D E-M5
left off, the Olympus OM-D E-M1
delivers impressive image quality with enough add-ons to give you the tools to take great photos. Among the new features is an on-sensor phase-detect AF system to help offer improved AF performance on the whole.
Elsewhere, the 16-megapixel sensor loses the low pass filter to ensure sharper images, while an improved electronic viewfinder now includes a built-in eye sensor. The E-M1 doesn't come cheap but for the money you do get a class-leading EVF and a CSC-quality autofocus performance all housed in a weather-sealed, robust body to help make it one the best cameras of any type on the market today.
If the E-M1 is too pricey, the £650 Sony A6000
is a cheaper alternative to consider.Price
