Introduction

With 'Deep Learning' autofocus, crazy-fast burst speeds and refined ergonomics, the Olympus E-M1X is the most focused action and sports shooting camera that Olympus has ever made. And though it retains a Four Thirds sensor like the E-M1 II, Olympus is touting the X as a credible alternative to the flagship Nikon D5's and Canon EOS-1D X II's of the world: in the right circumstances.

We'll look at comparisons against the D5 and 1D X II in a future article, but for now, we wanted to take a closer look at how the E-M1X stacks up against other Four Thirds and APS-C cameras with sports-shooting chops. It's true that the E-M1X is the only camera in this comparison with a true double-grip chassis, but its competition is fierce nonetheless.
