Engadget Review

Olympus’ latest flagship camera, the O-MD E-M1 Mark III isn’t particularly exciting. It is a bit faster than the last model, and has improved and more versatile autofocus. It also features a class-leading 5-axis image stabilization system that makes handheld photography better. However, the autofocus system doesn’t hold up to rivals, especially Sony, and it’s not great for low-light shooting. It also falls short of similarly-priced rivals like the Panasonic GH5 when it comes to video. While it’s great for wildlife and action photography, for everyone else, there are better cameras out there.
