March 2012

The OM-D E-M5, a small, lightweight mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera compliant with the Micro Four Thirds System standard, carries on the highly reputed tradition of Olympus' masterpiece OM single-lens reflex camera series. The OM-D is designed for enthusiasts who prefer the time-honored traditions of shooting through a viewfinder and changing lenses as desired. But make no mistake, this is a technologically advanced camera with a high-performance electronic viewfinder for high-quality, real-time photography in diverse environments. Its small, lightweight body, fashioned in the revered OM mold, is made with a magnesium alloy. It features the world's first 5-axis image stabilization system and robust weatherproofing, an E-5 trademark. OM-D E-M5 makes high-quality imaging happen with its 16 million pixel Live MOS sensor and TruePic VI image processor. Its emphatic straight-line design inherits the distinctive style and compact persona of a vintage single-lens reflex OM camera. (open price)
