OM Digital Solutions Cameras (m4/3)

Olympus announced their first m4/3 camera in June of 2009, christening the line of cameras "Pen" in homage to their well-liked half-frame 35mm SLR cameras of the same name. In 2021 a new company was formed from the divestiture of Olympus Imaging, called OM Digital Solutions (I usually abbreviate this to OMDS).

The current OM Digital Solution lineup of m4/3 cameras runs from enthusiast (E-PL10 and E-M10 Mark IV), to serious enthusiast (Pen-F, E-M5 Mark II, E-M1 Mark III, and E-M1X).

  • E-P## = Pen = rangefinder style cameras
