Olympus' retro-inspired OM-D E-M5 wowed critics, and the company looks to wow them some more with a retro camera offering both impressive image and speed. Like the E-M5, the E-M1 has a sleek and stylish body that Gizmodo says "retains its throwback sensibility while wielding more controls and better ergonomics," while the Phoblographer says the E-M1 "feels quite solid in the hand and nothing at all like a toy." But it isn't all looks, as the E-M1 has a 37-point autofocus that "works very quickly" regardless of lighting situations according to Digital Versus, and image abilities that Gizmodo Australia thinks are "so hot it hurts." The E-M1's photos are "excellent" according to CNET, who also feels the E-M1 can even stand against Nikon's D7100. With the E-M1, Olympus does it again, delivering a retro-looking shooter with exceptional image quality and speed inside a mirrorless body.
I just shot with one of the first units in the world at the Oly launch event in New York, and I'm certain that almost no one needs a DSLR anymore.
