Olympus OM-D E-M10 review – The competition
Olympus would like us to compare the OM-D E-M10 to similarly priced DSLRs from Nikon (D5300) and Pentax (K-30). However, I see the main competition being Panasonic’s CSC range, particularly the 16MP Lumix DMC-GX7, which has a faster maximum shutter speed of 1/8000sec compared to the E-M10’s 1/4000sec, although a lower-spec EVF. Alternatively, the 16MP Lumix DMC-GM1 offers similar features and quality to the E-M10 in a smaller, lighter body and is capable of shooting full HD video at 60p. However, it lacks the DSLR-like functionality of the E-M10.
There are a number of other good options at the E-M10’s price point, and ultimately the decision may come down to which body type is preferred.
