By on

Olympus has announced the OM-D E-M10 mirrorless digital Micro Four Thirds system camera. Olympus OM-D E-M10 specs comparison vs OM-D E-M5 vs OM-D E-M1 cameras now available. Below are the specs comparison table with the full specs list of both E-M10 versus E-M5 and E-M1 cameras.

The Olympus OM-D E-M10 compact system camera combines the image quality, classic styling and focusing speed of the E-M5 with the sheer power of the flagship E-M1 in an extremely compact all-metal casing.

The OM-D E-M5 is a micro four thirds camera announced back in February 2012. Olympus E-M5 feature a 16 megapixel sensor, ISO up to 25,600, high resolution 1.4million dot EVF, built-in image stabilization and tiling touch screen.

The Olympus OM-D E-M1 announced back in September 2013. It features a 16.3 megapixel Live MOS sensor and TruePic VII image processor. The OM-D E-M1 has on-chip phase detection, which promises to focus legacy Four Thirds lenses (using the optional MMF-3 adapter) at much faster speeds than previous Olympus m4/3 cameras.

Olympus OM-D E-M10 has  3-axis image stabilization rather than the 5-axis system found in the E-M5 and E-M1, and doesn’t provide an accessory port. This makes the E-M10 is a budget friendly micro four thirds shooter with an really affordable price. For new users we highly recommend to buy the new Olympus OM-D E-M10 camera. It is a clear winner as an entry-level camera series of Olympus.
