Olympus OM-D E-M1 Hands-On Review

Ten years ago the Olympus E-1 and Four Thirds system was launched, with the last Four Thirds camera released three years ago, the Olympus E-5.

During the design study of the next professional grade camera to replace the Olympus E-5, it was decided that the Micro Four Thirds system was the best way to go, with the benefits of a smaller size, as well as the ability to use both Micro Four Thirds, and Four Thirds lenses.

Olympus were about also performing a design study on the Olympus E-7 digital SLR, however, by using an electronic viewfinder (EVF) in the new Olympus OM-D E-M1, they are able to provide a much larger view, compared to an optical viewfinder – the optical prism would need to be significantly larger to match the EVF.
