Review: Olympus OM-D E-M5

A New Flagship? When Olympus announced their latest camera, the OM-D E-M5, there was more buzz among the photographic community for this release than there had been for probably any other Micro 4/3 camera since the original E-P1.   Olympus resurrected their legendary ‘OM’ system name for this camera, creating a new line of Olympus Micro …
