Review summary from DPReview

DPReview Olympus OM-D E-M1 Overview
DPReview Gold Award October 2013
If you want to feel like you're shooting with a DSLR, but still want the size and agility of a mirrorless camera, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better option than the E-M1.

Conclusion

In most respects the E-M1 does a good job bridging the gap between a traditional DSLR and a Micro Four Thirds camera. Its controls and customizability may overwhelm less hands-on users, but those who don't mind tinkering will love its flexibility. The improved autofocus tracking and performance with original Four Thirds lenses adds to the appeal of a camera with blazingly fast AF acquisition speeds with its native lenses.

Reasons to buy

  • Sturdy and compact weather-resistant body
  • Excellent image quality
  • Well designed, customizable controls
  • Bright, sharp electronic viewfinder

Things to consider

  • Interface and controls can be overwhelming initially
  • AF with Four Thirds lenses is slow in dim conditions
  • Disappointing video quality
  • Unintuitive in-camera Raw conversion interface

Suggested for

Those who prefer viewfinder shooting, want a relatively compact system camera without sacrificing external controls of a DSLR.

Not suggested for

Sports and fast action demanding very fast burst rates, very low light, and users with little interest in customizing camera functions.
