The Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III is the third version of Olympus' entry-level, Micro Four Thirds (MFT) OM-D range and MFT fan, David Thorpe, has been putting it to the test.

"Olympus's E-M10 mark ll was my favourite Olympus. Now here's the Mark lll. Is it a big step up or just an incremental one? Is it a step up at all?" Asks David.

The retro-styled Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III features a 16mp Micro Four Thirds sensor, 5-axis image stabilisation built-in, a 3inch tilting touch-screen, built-in Wi-Fi, 8.6fps continuous shooting, and 4K video recording (to name a few of its features). It also offers 10 improvements over the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II.


Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III updates over the Mark II:

  1. 4K video recording
  2. 121 AF points 
  3. 8.6fps continuous shooting
  4. Updated user interface
  5. Updated mode dial
  6. New shortcut button (replaces Fn3)
  7. Bleach Bypass Art Filter
  8. TruPic VIII image processor (from E-M1 II)
  9. Improved grip front and rear
  10. Cluster AF (multiple areas in focus displayed)

We gave the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III 4.5 stars and a 'Highly Recommended' award, saying it's 'ideal for beginners and those looking for an entry-level SLR-like mirrorless camera' but does David agree? Hit 'play' on the video above to find out.

Thanks for the frank advice. I'm so glad that I plumped for the mark ll over the lll and apart from the poorer low light performance I much prefer it to my previous Canon EOS5D mark lll which disappointed me.
Given the excellent 5 way IBS the low light problems are alleviated anyway by the ability to shoot at quite low speeds.
