This article outlines some of the primary E-M1 decision factors that can be considered when assessing various E-M1 series camera bodies. This article is not an in-depth technical review that compares specifications between cameras.

This article summarizes some of the feedback I have been receiving from readers.

When I sat down at my computer to write this Olympus OM-D E-M1X Twelve Month Review I wasn’t quite sure where to start. So, I went back and reread the 6 month review I wrote in November 2019 to see if anything had changed in terms of my perceptions of this camera. And, what additional insights I could add.
