When I started shooting a Nikon D3200, I decided to purchase an Olympus OM-D. I had never used an OM-D body, so I decided to give it a shot that it would stand out from my other cameras. Of course, I am not a big fan of manual focus, but since it was my first camera and I was used to using a camera I could understand, I kept the manual focus. The camera proved a great success and I did not regret my choice to purchase it. Since then, I have been using my OM-D daily for almost five years.
Are there advantages to buying a DSLR?
Being a photographer who is very good at taking photos, the benefits of having an OM-D are very minimal at the cost of a bit more noise. The camera has been used to take a lot of pictures in the last year and I was not able to tell any difference between using the new sensor or the sensor from my other cameras. I also do a lot of video work with my OM-D and have been very pleased with the performance as well. For more video work, I use my Canon D5200 and it does a lot for video work.
Is there any difference in image quality between shooting with a camera such as the OM-D and a DSLR when comparing it to the OM-D?
I have shot both, with my D3200, and the OM-D, and it appears to be slightly sharper. I do not have an example of when that comparison was done between the two cameras, but it seems that the new sensor is superior for video work.
How do lenses compare to the OM-D lens?
As you can see in the video, there is very little difference between the OM-D lenses and the OM-D lenses. For photography the lens is only used for the image, not for capturing the details when shooting, so the differences are small.
How much does this camera cost?
The price of the OM-D is more than the OM-D E-M5 which costs about 50% more ($499) when you compare it to the Fujifilm X-T20 lens ($379). With the Leica M9, the OM-D E-M5 costs about 30% less ($679). These figures include all the accessories for the camera besides the lenses, although for some shooting options, it will be enough to pick the camera up only if
