Olympus Unveils New E-M10: Portable and Affordable

Just this week Olympus impressed the photography world with the unveiling it’s new O-MD E-M10, which highlights their new Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera, and looks like it’s quite the competition for the latest Fujifilm release. And they didn’t stop there, they also announced a new 14-42mm zoom lens, a fast 25mm wide-angle lens, a body cap lens, and an impressive long zoom, creating a durable camera with plenty of accessories to match.

Although the new model looks very similar to the E-M5, it’s proportionally smaller, feels more durable with it’s metal body, and the best part: it’s much more affordable. The E-M10 also has some pretty neat features, such as Wi-Fi connectivity, a more advanced autofocus system, a sharper screen, and the same image processor as the 16-megapixel sensor found in the high-end E-M1. Basically, it gives you pro-style performance in a digital camera that is much easier to carry around.

The Silver and Black versions of the OM-D E-M10 will be available in stores in March, and will cost you $699 for the body only and $799 bundled with a kit including the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 14-42 mm f3.5-5.6 II R lens. A release date for the accessories are yet to be announced.
