Olympus OM-D E-M1 Hands-On: So Hot, You Won't Believe It's Mirrorless

The new mirrorless OM-D EM-1 is so much camera you won't believe its mirroress. Or how small it is.

It comes with a new 20-megapixel image sensor, and importantly, a refreshing £500-ish price tag when it's bundled with an 18-55mm lens.
