Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark IV

bythom olympus em10iv

The OM-D E-M10 Mark IV is the third update of Olympus' entry and smallest DSLR-like mirrorless camera, with a built-in EVF and DSLR-style controls in a very small package (smaller than the E-M1 and E-M5, but without weatherproofing). This fourth iteration moves the camera to Olympus' current sensor and feature set.
