Olympus joins the retro fad with the OM-D E-M5, an elegant micro 4/3 camera reminiscent of their film OM line. Highlights include a 16 megapixel CMOS sensor, weather sealing, 5-axis optical stabilization, a 3-inch swivel OLED touchscreen, 1080p HD video at 60fps, and an electronic viewfinder with 1.4 million dots. The OM-D is tiny, it weighs less and is thinner than Canon's fixed-lens G1 X, yet can be bulked up with an optional battery grip. And of course it works with all the 4/3s lenses already in production by Panasonic and Olympus. It's pricey at $1099 with the 14-42 kit lens, but reviews have noted its quick autofocus, fantastic build quality, and image quality matching the best of Sony's NEX.
