olympus_omd_em10_01After a period of leaked images and rumors, Olympus has officially announced their latest camera in the form of the OM-D E-M10. Many had speculated that CP+ could be when Olympus would make their announcement, but we guess they decided to announce it a little earlier instead which would make sense since CP+ could see their announcements overshadowed by other companies. In any case the camera’s specs appear to be pretty much in line with what we have been hearing in the rumors, which means that we can look forward to a 16MP Live MOS sensor, the same one found in the OM-D E-M5, and a TruePic VII image processor which was borrowed from the OM-D E-M1.

Other features of the camera includes a high speed electronic viewfinder, a 3-inch LCD display that can be tiled, 3-axis image stabilization, fast AF, a built-in popup flash and will sport a metal body, which does offer a more premium and sturdy feel compared to plastic. For those interested in getting their hands on the camera, Olympus has announced that it will be made available come early February 2014 and there will be a body-only and a lens kit version to choose from. For those not interested in any lenses, the body-only version will cost £529.99, while the version with the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 EZ lens will cost £699.99.
