Olympus E-M5 sample images


The following images were taken with an Olympus OM-D E-M5 in Program auto mode (unless otherwise stated). Mostly they were shot with the M Zuiko Digital ED 12-50mm f3.5-6.3 EZ kit lens, plus the final two examples were shot with the M Zuiko Digital 45mm f1.8 prime.

The OM-D E-M5 was set to its best quality 16 Megapixel resolution and Fine quality compression with Auto White Balance. Image stabilisation was enabled for these hand-held shots.

All of the images below are available to download in larger or their original formats for analysis. Click on the desired image to access the files at Flickr.
