The Olympus OMD EM-5 is Camera of the Year.

What a difference a year makes. Last year at this time Olympus was embroiled in a massive financial scandal that almost cost them their camera division. 12 months later the Olympus OMD EM-5 was voted camera of the year at Digital Photography Review. It’s no surprise to me, I pre-ordered it as soon as it became available, and it has been my primary camera since it arrived at my house in May. The camera, while not perfect, is pretty damn remarkable. Olympus should be very proud of the award, and getting the camera division back on the right track.

By the way, the OMD EM-5 beat out the Canon 5D Mk III, and the Nikon D-800. Not bad, not bad at all.
