and another one – Olympus OM-D

With the camera show season starting today in Japan with the Camera and Imaging Show, the new cameras are now coming thick and fast.

Earlier in the week it was the fantastic Nikon D800, yesterday Olympus announced the OM-D, playing on their OM legacy.

The OM series of cameras most would say, peaked with the OM 4ti, a fantastic camera, with some of the most advanced metering and flash ever seen, some would say we still don’t have metering as good as this now.

The new OM-D E-M5 model is actually a lovely little micro four thirds camera with built in EVF, finally I hear the cry.  The major reason I picked a Nikon V1 over the arguably better micro four third cameras was the built in EVF.

With a metal body and weather sealing I hope it sells well.  I have never owned an Olympus camera, but they have produced many classics which have come to close to tempting me, most recently with the Pen range.  This again I feel comes close but i’ll have to try it in my hand first.
