Olympus OM-D E-M10: The Compact Camera We've Been Waiting For

By Mario Aguilar on at

Olympus first introduced the OM-D E-M5 a few years ago to photographers that were eager for a compact interchangeable-lens camera that felt as powerful as they knew these cameras could be. Two years later we're getting a dope OM-D at a price we can actually afford.

Meet the Olympus OM-D EM-10. It's got the spectacular 16-megapixel micro four thirds sensor first seen on the EM-5, plus the extremely capable TruPic VII image processor introduced last fall on the the awesome EM-1. That's a lot of guts, so the biggest question everybody's going to lob at me is how much does this little guy cost, so I'll tell you right now that unlike its pricey OM-D siblings, the E-M10 will cost £700 bundled with a 14-42 mm f3.5-5.6 II lens. Though that's not exactly cheap, it's a lot cheaper than before. So what's the catch?
