Olympus has introduced the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III, updating the OM-D E-M5 range with a compact, lightweight mirrorless camera that has plenty of features and incorporates a lot of technology found previously in the higher-end E-M1 Mark II.
Designed for photography enthusiasts and semi-professionals, the OM-D EM-5 Mark III features weather-sealing, high-performance autofocus capabilities and a powerful image stabilisation system. Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III provides a combination of a 20.4 Megapixel Live MOS sensor and the high-speed TruePic VIII image processor from Olympus’ flagship model OM-D E-M1 Mark II as well as a new compact in-body 5-axis image stabilisation system.
The Micro Four Thirds shooter also comes with 121-point all cross-type on-chip phase detection autofocus system, 10fps burst shooting, 4K 30P high-definition video recording, 2.36 million-dot OLED viewfinder, and USB charging.
Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III Pricing
The OM-D E-M5 Mark III will be available in late November in your choice of black and silver bodies. The body is priced at $1199, while adding the 14-150mm F4-5.6 II lens brings the cost up to $1799. A battery grip, the ECG-5, features a shutter release and control dial and will sell for $169.
