The OM-D E-M1X is Olympus’s new flagship camera and unlike a lot of the other Olympus bodies, this one is huge compared to the rest of the Olympus lineup. So why would they stray away from compact performance.
According to the Olympus website, this is “a pro level camera” which explains its beefy grip. But what really sets this model apart from others in its class is what its made of. With a completely redesigned body, this launches a new era of Olympus cameras. Most notably, it has the durability and size sport and outdoor photographers have been praying for.
They’re so confident in this camera’s construction that it comes with a 2-year extended warranty.
