Olympus OM-D E-M1 Photos Image

Here are 68 sample photos, 30 RAW images and a Full HD 1080p movie taken with the new Olympus OM-D E-M1 compact system camera and the 12-40mm f/2.8 lens.

These sample photos were taken today at an Olympus event in Ireland with a final production version of the OM-D E-M1 and one of the very first 12-40mm f/2.8 lenses. We also used the 45mm f/1.8 and 300mm lenses for a few of the images, but the majority were taken with the excellent 12-40mm lens.

We've also included an ISO sequence from 100 to 25600 so that you can see exactly what the new 16 megapixel sensor is capable of.

A gallery of 68 sample JEPG photos, 30 RAW images and a Full HD movie taken with the new Olympus OM-D E-M1 compact system camera.

What is your comment on the video? How does it compare with other cameras?

Only a n00b cares about video on a camera.
This Olympus is another piece of overpriced mediocrity by a corrupt company.
If you want the very best in a camera, take a look at this years fantastic new line up from Panasonic.
Panasonic - simply the best non-DSLR cameras money can buy.

Joe Prete, your words have no arguments, are sad, poor and unedifying.

I switched from Nikon d7000 to OMD-EM 5 and I do not regret at all ...So, I expect EM1 even better than existing offerings in 4/3 gang.

Compared to this latest masterpiece from Olympus, Panasonic’s Lumix line should be retired. The video out of this one beats the video out of Pana’s much touted, totally overpriced DMC-GH3.

@Stunko:
Not impressed w/ the video myself.
What makes it better than the GH3?

I am an old professional having experience using the old Nikon F’s in the days of film. Now being but a hobbyist, I bought a Panasonic GX1 when it first came out. My only complaint is that most images are always soft (not sharp), as if I’m using a soft effect filter.. Looking for a new camera, I have been viewing sample jpg’s from many brands. The new Panasonic GX7 jpg’s still look soft.. The images on the Olympus E M1 look much better to my old eyes. No, I am not a Olympus fanboy.  Being from the days of film, my one biggest complaint of digital is the unsharp images from many brands…
