FIRST LOOK: Olympus OM-D E-M1

The long-awaited sibling for the popular OM-D EM-5 has been announced today. The new OM-D E-M1 comes with some significant changes to both the body design and the interior components. In most cases, these will create a genuine stir among enthusiast photographers, many of whom have invested in Olympus bodies and lenses because of their small size, light weight and superior optical performance. However, owners of the E-M5 may have some reservations about the changes to the user interface.

Samsung NX300

Samsung’s NX300 was announced at CES at the beginning of January but wasn’t officially launched in Australia until 15 May and it took a while after that to reach retail stores. While physically this model resembles the NX200 of 2011 (which we didn’t review), it comes with a new Hybrid Auto Focus (AF) system and the ability to shoot 3D photos and movies with Samsung’s new 45mm f/1.8 2D/3D lens.
