Olympus OM-D E-M10
Estimated Street Price: $699 (body only)
Featuring the same high-resolution EVF as the E-M5, the new E-M10 has a higher-res LCD monitor like the E-M1's, a 3-inch design that tilts. The new camera also has the same 81-point contrast-based AF system as the E-M5, but focus tracking has been improved. Focus peaking is available for manual focusing.
The E-M10 can shoot up to 20 RAW frames or an unlimited number of JPEGs at 8 fps in single-shot AF mode, and at 3.5 fps with continuous AF tracking for each frame. Built-in WiFi lets you upload images to your smartphone wirelessly, operate the camera from your smartphone and geotag images using the smartphone's GPS. The new camera has a built-in flash unit, something neither of its higher-priced siblings has (they come with a clip-on unit).
Additional features of note include Live Composite Mode, Photo & Movie Capture, 12 Art Filters, 8 Art Effects, HDR capture and Photo Story.
Like all Micro Four Thirds cameras, the new E-M10 can use all MFT lenses, as well as many others, via adapters. Olympus currently offers around 20 M.Zuiko lenses designed for the system, ranging from a 9-18mm wide zoom to a 75-300mm supertelephoto zoom (the Four Thirds sensor's 2X crop factor means that 300mm focal length frames like a 600mm on a full-frame DSLR or 35mm film camera). Dimensions are 4.7x3.2x1.8 inches; weight is 14.0 ounces (with battery and SD card).
