OM-1:The Best Micro Four Thirds Camera Ever Made (Petapixel)

Petapixel tested the newly released OM-1 camera and concluded: it is the best MFT camera ever made:

It should absolutely be considered by any serious wildlife or sports shooters or anyone else seeking a small, affordable, powerhouse package. Getting this kind of performance in another camera would cost you over twice as much, and your lenses would be at least two to three times the size and weight for equivalent focal lengths.

Should You Buy It?
Absolutely, yes. If you’re a sports or wildlife photographer, the combination of speed, durability, and the diminutive size of the lens (compared to APS-C or full-frame) makes the OM Digital Solutions OM System OM-1 one of the best cameras on the market. If you do slower work, like landscapes, and already have one of the more recent E-M1 models, you may want to wait to see what OM Digital comes up with next.
