Here is a roundup of the latest Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III reviews.


The Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III is a small camera, sure, but it’s also a camera that can perform in a way that other cameras can’t. Features like Starry Sky AF and handheld high res mode are unique advantages. Because you can pack a weather-sealed camera and smaller lenses, leave the tripod and ND filters at home, and still get solid images, the E-M1 Mark III is an ideal camera for travel.

But it’s not perfect. The viewfinder resolution is a couple of generations out of date, the metering system feels inconsistent, and many other basic systems, like the 121-point autofocus and 20MP Four Thirds sensor, are carried over from the Mark II.


The Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III is the ultimate professional camera for general practice photographers. There are superior dedicated sports cameras, but it can certainly keep pace with them on the court – and there’s more to being “pro” than shooting action. Its unique combination of industry leading IBIS, up to 80MP resolution, 60fps continuous burst, handheld astrophotography, Pro Capture and Live ND filters makes the E-M1 Mark III the most versatile all-purpose camera for professionals looking to take on any job.


Like a smaller, more affordable E-M1X, the E-M1 Mark III is shaping up to be one of the best mirrorless all-rounders you can buy. While it might seem expensive for a Micro Four Thirds camera, the combination of superb image stabilization, speedy continuous shooting and an array of impressive shooting modes could make it a tempting option for sports and action fans. It’s a shame the sensor is now a little old, and it may struggle to compete with rivals on outright image quality, but the E-M1 Mark III remains an impressive upgrade on its predecessor.


For owners of the E-M1 Mark II, there may not be enough reason to upgrade, however, some of the features introduced are impressive in use, particularly Live ND, Star focus, and the handheld high-res shooting. There are a number of operability improvements that make the camera even more enjoyable to use (ISO button, joystick), with improvements in autofocus (with additional group options) also very welcome. The camera also has an improved shutter rating, with a 400,000 shutter rating, giving extra peace of mind for the longevity of the camera.

The new OM-D E-M1 Mark III uses the same battery as the older model. The BLH-1 can be charged in as little as 2 hours and is rated to 440 shots.
