Customer Reviews of the OM-D E-M10

Great Camera in a small frame
This is a amazing camera so far I am impressed with the overall feel and size of the camera, photo's have been very clear. I like the most is you can add other lenses and filters. I miss that from my older SLR. This camera for me was very easy to understand right out of the box. I will be adding other lenses and getting out and enjoying the camera.
January 07, 2016
Great Compact Camera w/ Plenty of Room for Growth
The camera itself is a wonder to use. The small body make it perfect for me to take with on backpacking trips where every gram counts, but I want the versatility of various lenses. The construction seems durable, and has stood up to some smaller trips so far.
The camera has enough features and functions to allow me as a hobby photographer to grow. It's easy enough to use that my non-photographer wife enjoys using it as well (when coupled with the 14042 EZ lens).
Some less technically-savvy users might be intimidated by the extensive menu options found in the OM-D M-10. A read-through of the manual with the knowledge of your preferred shooting types should familiarize a person with the settings they need most, however.
January 01, 2016
Was looking to get a camera that was small and mighty. This fits the bill and has been great so far. Looking forward to taking it on my flyfishing adventures! It's compact size will fit nicely in my fishing gear and will be a vast improvement over my smartphone pictures.
Out of the box was easy to use and takes great pictures. Can't wait to get back into taking pictures and learning how to leverage all the fun stuff this camera has to offer.

The best feeling camera you can get for under a months pay
I did not set out to buy this camera, I was focused firmly on cameras with more mega-pixels or faster continuous drive, or 60fps video - but picking up multiple cameras from multiple manufacturers, the OM-D E-M10 feels amazing - the controls are exactly where you'd expect and easy to use and the view finder is excellent.
The picture quality is stunning - it's as good or better than cameras with larger sensors - and the in-body stabilization is so much better than I'd anticipated, I can actually use the f/5.6 150mm zoom indoors handheld and still get sharp photos at 1/4s exposure.
The controls are what make this camera though, if you ever plan to take the camera out of "Auto", there's just nothing else that feels this good in the hands until you're looking at pro-level DSLRs and lots of them are still clunkier to use.
The continuous/tracking auto-focus is not great but that's typical of mirrorless camera, but the single-AF is fast and accurate, so there - that's the one negative to it.
December 22, 2015
Loving this camera!!
I bought this camera as a smaller, walkaround option when I didn't want to carry my heavier DSLR and I am loving it!! The crisp, clearness of the photos amazes me and the touchscreen option makes changing settings so easy. I'm still learning all that this camera can do, but I am thrilled at what I have discovered so far and expect that to only get better. To say I am a new Olympus fan is a gross understatement!!
December 09, 2015
Great improvements over my E-500
As the owner of an old E-500 C/W 14-40 & 40-150 lens the OM-D E-M10 similarly equipped is much lighter and faster with much better low light capability. Improvements include video, live screen, zoom to focus, non-proprietary memory cards, increased megapixels, & time laps.
The kit did not come with lens hoods as the E-500 did. The built in flash does not automatically pop up in low light and it does not seem to have a depth of field preview like the E-500 did. Over all acceptable trade-offs for the aforementioned benefits.
The wife refused to use the E-500 because of its size and weight and loves the OM-D. My son has inherited the old E-500.
December 04, 2015
Coming from full size Nikon film and digital equipment, this was a welcome surprise. I knew the E-M10 was lightweight and produced acceptable images. However, I was shocked how great the images are. Moreover the wifi interface with my smart phone is a boon to my abilities of low light photography.
If you are debating about jumping onto the micro 4/3 boat, please come aboard. There is a seat next to me. You will thoroughly enjoy the ride.

Best affordable interchangeable lens camera
I am an owner of the Olympus E-PM1, and I bought this camera as an upgrade. For the price, this is a wonderful camera with picture quality and functionality that can easily surpass entry level DSLRs. The body is somewhat small with insufficient thumb grip for someone with relatively large hands, however, the optional grip solved this issue for me. I wish Olympus made a dive housing for this camera, as third party housing are in excess of $1k.
October 28, 2015
Great camera !
Overall, a great camera. Lots of features. Numerous buttons, dials, and settings. I've used Olympus products for several years and all of them have worked well. Like this E-M10 so much I traded an E-520 for another E-M10 Mark 2 during the recent Olympus trade up promotion. Both cameras work great with excellent results. With the MMF-2 adapter, I'm able to use older four thirds lenses. So far, images are fantastic.
October 23, 2015
This is the second Olympus camera I've owned. I kept the first one for 15+ years and only upgraded because my husband thought I would enjoy a newer camera with newer features. While my first Olympus had nice features and functionality, I am truly amazed at all the unique functions and features of this camera. New functions for me on this camera include the photo story feature and WiFi capability. The new camera also has a much larger viewfinder than my first camera. The camera is very user friendly and easy to learn how it operates. Used the camera on a recent trip through Cades Cove in Tennessee. Was able to take pictures from a moving vehicle and have them come out clear and in focus because of the image stabilizer in the body of the camera. Am a true fan of Olympus products.
