Image quality is largely becoming a moot point when choosing a new camera, whether its a dSLR, mirror-less or compact. Modern sensors are so good that talk of better or worse megapixels and ISO's is best let to the testing labs - for your average user they're all brilliant.
So enter the retro camera, enter the camera that will pluck at your heart-strings (and purse strings), and enter the camera that promises to take you back to your youth with memories of manual focus, slide film and Brut 33.
The Olympus OM-D is a micro four thirds camera that heralds a new style of device, one that offers excellent image quality and features in a beautifully old-fashioned shell, that is small enough to be unobtrusive but big enough to offer all the controls of its larger cousins.
If you've struggled with the idea of buying a camera without a viewfinder, fear not, the OM-D has a beautifully clear finder. It's an electronic display, but we're not talking about the fuzzy efforts of a few years ago, the technology has advanced to such a degree that you might even find that you prefer this one to the viewfinder on an SLR...
Let's not worry about the specifications. Suffice to say that it's a beautiful looking camera with all the advantages of the much larger dSLRs in a much more convenient size. Olympus have 13 great lenses to back up these digital bodies, so all your focal length needs can be satisfied.
Want one? So do I!
