Olympus has a new baby in the micro four-third category. The OM-D E-M5. This is new OM-D series as compared to the PEN series.

Here is what is cool:

  • 16 Megapixel
  • Micro Four-third mirror-less camera with interchangeable lenses
  • Magnesium alloy body
  • In Body image stabilisation
  • Three inch touch screen display with tilt
  • Weather sealed body, you can also purchase complimenting weather sealed lenses
  • HD Video recording
  • 425g weight

What not so cool:

  • No inbuilt flash, you need to purchase external flash
  • Tilt LCD is not as versatile as swirl ones found in the Panasonic, but guess that is patent protect hence Olympus had to do with tilt. But nevertheless tilt can be used to take photos at different angles
