Default Olympus OM-D E-M5 Reviewed by Digital Photography Review

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/olympusem5/' target='_blank'>http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/olympusem5/</a><br /><br /></div><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1328721474.usr15670.jpg" /></p><p>DPReview.com has a review of the latest Micro Four Thirds camera, the E-M5. I'll spoil it a little: It's the best rated one yet. I have spent some time with the E-M5 and I have been quite impressed with many aspects of it, though the up-close and personal experience with what Olympus fans call the "Olympus Colour" did not leave me quite as impressed. It consists mainly of a very aggressive tone curve that pulls the upper-midtones and overall increases contrast to deliver a very punchy yet natural look. I think I prefer to process my raw files and their colours myself, thank you. The rest of the camera, including its low-light high-ISO noise, its AF speed, the user interface, were really good. My only quibble was with the rear command wheel, which being placed closer to the viewfinder meant I had to stretch my right thumb more than normal compared to the Lumix Micro Four Thirds cameras or Nikon DSLRs. Overall, a great performance. Now Panasonic, where is that GH3?<span> </span></p>

Olympus has really been impressing me lately - so much so that my next camera, whenever that is, might be an Olympus.

You should try their JPEG output some time. "Consumer friendly" is a good term for it.
