Olympus is very serious to develop PEN series cameras, and Olympus is now also ready to show the successor of OMD EM5, the new Olympus
OMD EM1. This camera is a mirrorless camera based
on the Micro Four Thirds standard, but it does not replace the existing OMD EM5
- instead it's pitched at a higher level, while the hugely popular EM5 remains
on sale. Olympus OMD EM1 is equipped with a new 16 Megapixel sensor with
on-chip phase-detection, allows the EM1 to quickly autofocus when fitted with
old Four Thirds lenses via an adapter.

OM-D E-M1 is the flagship OM-D model. This camera is a premium mirrorless
camera. The newly-developed Live MOS sensor supports Phase Detection AF on the
In combination with the newly developed TruePic VII image
processor, the camera reduces noise even further at high-sensitivities, and provides
excellent image quality with improved reproducibility. Olympus quotes the
continuous shooting speed of the OMD EM1 to be 10fps without AF and 6.5fps with
AF. This makes it a tad faster than the Olympus EM5.
