Olympus E-M5
Review| User review| Specification

The Good: Excellent build quality; relatively small size; five-axis image stabilisation works really well; improved ISO performance over the E-P3.

The Bad: Price is a tad prohibitive.

The Bottom Line: It's fair to say that Olympus has come up with their best Micro Four Thirds camera yet.

New kit lens

Also worth mentioning is the new kit lens - the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-50mm f/3.5-f/6.3 EZ, a Micro Four Thirds lens that has a few interesting tricks up its sleeve.

For one thing, this 12-50mm (24-100mm equivalent) is a bit wider at the wide end and a bit more telephoto at the tele end than Olympus' usual 14-45mm kit lens, which is always good.

However, what makes it ­interesting is that this is the first lens I've seen that offers you both a manual- and powered-zoom option.

The lens switches from manual to powered zoom by simply pushing the zoom ring backwards or forwards - manual zoom works best when you're shooting stills, but when shooting movies, the powered zoom is the preferred option because it gives you a smooth transition from wide to telephoto.

The lens also has a macro mode - if you hold down the Macro button, you can push the zoom ring one more click forward, which will then lock the zoom ring and engage the macro mode for close-up shots.
