    Coming from the EM1 mark1, this was the jump I’d been waiting for so I can continue to use my collection of excellent Olympus glass. The key features for me and my usage needs are the weather sealing and solid IBIS – I’m often using this camera body in rough outdoor conditions in the wilderness and for industrial job sites where a delicate camera is not ideal. The array of new features I’m having fun exploring so far, and it’s restored my passion for using my Olympus gear for personal photography outside the realm of what I mentioned earlier (which is more work-related). Loving the solid feel of the grip still, which has always been a big sell for me using these smaller micro four thirds bodies, compared to my previous Nikon kit that was not friendly when it came to the weight and bulk. I can’t wait to be able to travel again and bring this with me to enjoy on vacation.

    Let me first start off by saying this….this is one bada$$ camera!! I ordered the Em1 Mark III as an upgrade to my Olympus Em10 and Em5 cameras. Before pulling the trigger on this camera, I watched countless reviews and videos on the ins and outs of the em1 mark iii and everything this camera offered was exactly what I was looking for: Fast face/eye autofocus, handheld high res shot, crazy good IBIS, weather proof body, and small/lightweight body. The Olympus does everything I hoped it would and MORE!

    Coming from a background with using Nikon APSC and full frame cameras, I also felt that the autofocus was lacking with m43 cameras but this is were the Em1 shines. The camera’s AF is so quick, that I can easily capture images of my 2 yr old daughter running around and it will lock onto her eye whenever it gets the chance which is amazing. I could never do that with my older Olympus cameras. The IBIS is down right incredible and I can easily get 4 second handheld shots and the images are sharp!

    Before jumping into the M43 world, my favorite camera I have ever owned was the Nikon d5300 due to its smaller size and excellent grip. The Olympus Em1 Mark III reminds me so much of that camera with it’s excellent grip and ergonomics yet, being smaller of a camera. I love that the Em1 is just a little bigger than the Em5 which allows me to use my small camera pouches and take the Em1 everywhere. Overall, I am extremely happy with this camera and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to upgrade or those that are looking to dive into the M43 world. A++

    Let me start with what I like about this camera. The image stabilization just blew me away. Hand held, four second exposures. Extremely sharp image quality. High resolution mode that takes 50 or 80 mega pixel images. Astrophotography mode that can focus on stars. An autofocus that is so quick I had to wonder if I really took a picture the first time I clicked the shutter button. This is the smartest camera on the market and one of the most robust. Easy to carry, an all metal design and has the best weather sealing on the market.

    That said, I returned it. A micro four thirds camera will never compete with a full frame sensor when it comes to low light photography. As much as I wanted to grab people and say “Hey, look at this cool feature” I didn’t do my homework. I thought all f stop ratings were the same, but an f2.8 lens for a micro 4/3 camera is equal to an f5.6 on a full frame camera. It will take a fantastic picture in low light on a tripod, but not if your subject is moving.

    I returned the Olympus and picked up a full frame mirrorless camera, but to honest I wish I had both.

    I previously shot with the Om-D E1 MKii, which is very similar to the current model, so I was really questioning the need to move to this new model. I shoot nightclub photography, and my one issue I had with the MKii was I always wished the autofocus would lock on target a little better. This new camera is night and day difference, from the moment I started shooting, it locked on focus incredibly fast. The autofocus improvements are HUGE! The camera is great! It is a small lightweight full pro camera.

    Super impressed with this camera. The handheld hi-res mode gives you very detailed 50mp images – great for landscape and architecture. This mode is no joke – it really works! The fact that you can handhold these shots is nothing short of amazing. Olympus is changing the game with their incredible 7-7.5 stops of IBIS, which is the tech behind producing the hi-res shots. Now you get hi-res when you want it but in a micro four-thirds package – longer range, smaller and lighter than a corresponding full-frame camera. The lenses are a lot smaller and lighter. If you don’t use the hi-res, then you get a super-fast camera with long-range, which is excellent for sports and birding.

    The 12-100mm pro lens is a gem. You get unbelievable reach in a fairly small and lightweight lens. The Mark iii performs well in low light. Many say that the micro four-thirds sensor can’t compete with full-frame in low light. That would be the case with moving subjects but not with fixed subjects/landscape. The IBIS on this camera is so crazy good you can get sharp handheld images at 1/4 – 1/10 of a second – no need to crank the ISO up when you can shoot at such slow shutter speeds.

    I have a Leica SL2, which I love, but I find that I am leaving it at home more and more since I picked up the Mark iii.

    I wanted to be the first one to write a review of this camera, because It came out 2 days ago, and I just opened the box 15 minutes ago. It won’t be in depth- but I’ll come back and update it after a week or two. Initial impressions are strong. I have owned 4 Oly cameras over the past 10 years and this one has the fastest AF I’ve ever used. Menus are intuitive. It doesn’t come with a robust manual, but just in the first 5 minutes I could use the buttons and such and get it to do what I want it to do. Super menu already set up. Thumb knob to change from MF to AF. Body feels light and plasticy, but its weather sealed, so I’m fine with it. Out of the box first pic with no post production with OLY 25mm 1.2 lens.

    I had purchased from this supplier previously ( a quality prime lens) and was very satisfied at that time. This was an expensive purchase and I was happy to deal with them again. I was not disappointed. Good communication throughout – I was kept informed and all timelines were met in what would be difficult “Covid” logistical circumstances. Thank you Becextech.
    I knew the product I was purchasing and was upgrading having used the two previous models of this camera. I am most impressed with the new camera, I’m really enjoying it – its re-lit my photographic motivation.

    Olympus is much maligned for its old sensor, but in practice, the camera delivers excellent quality images, especially if coupled with Olympus Pro lenses. It has a host of unique features thanks to its excellent stabilisation, powerful processor and clever software. For example, you can take HAND HELD high resolution (50mp) photos, rivaling much bigger cameras. It can take slow shutter speed photos without needing a tripod or neutral density filters. It can stack several images shot handheld to create a deep zone where everything is in focus, And there other useful features. Both the choice and quality of the lenses is second to none.

    The Olympus OMD EM1 Mkiii is a an enthusiast/pro camera body. There is no “Auto” mode! This camera offers both the advantages of the micro 4/3 system (smaller lenses and weather sealing on Pro lens). As such, it is an excellent system for hiking and travel. The Mkiii added a dedicated joy stick, starry skys autofocus, 80 mp handheld option and built in nd capability. All four were welcome additions to the camera. The downsides of the camera is the sensor which is at least 4 years old, low light capability and more limited depth of field. Although I would love a bump in sensor resolution, it is not a deal breaker. The low light limitations can be mitigated by the fast pro lens and excellent third party noise reduction software. The depth of field can also be dealt with in camera with focus stacking. I would still recommend this body even though Olympus has sold its imaging business. The completeness of the micro 4/3 system perfectly fits our needs. Highly recommended.
