The exciting new Olympus E-M5 camera not only brings together everything most people need in a compact camera but now adds much better high ISO and dynamic range performance which will further negate the need for carrying larger cameras around such as dSLRs.
Robin Wong has had the opportunity to pplay with a pre-release E-M5 and he is very excited with its high ISO and dynamic range performance as well as its image stabilisation.
He has examples of its high ISO performance here, in addition, see also his example videos on his blog site.
Now when and where can I buy this camera which is slated to be released in the US on April 16th for $999 body only?
If that is not exciting enough, the E-M5 could be matched with the rumoured Panasonic GH-3 later this year which is said to at last offer a global electronic shutter and hopefully weather-proofing. This will make a very nice complimentary camera to the E-M5, or if this is too large, there is always the Olympus PEN series to entice you with a nice pancake lens for compact size.
