Oly E-M5 III - NO wow effect at all
13

Hey folks,

Just a very early first impressions of my new silver E-M5 III.

First I would like to note that I have owned every existing Olympus camera except E-M1 III. So no this is not my first Olympus camera at all.

The very reason I still shoot Olympus is their camera physical ergonomics and controls (dials, buttons). Considering that point of view E-M5 III is a real disappointment for me !

I do not know if it's just my sample unit but both top dials are very stiff, they are not angled, they are smaller and every time you try to use them I feel the pain in my fingers. Both older E-M5 II and E-M10 II are significantly better and more ergonomical.

Guys do you have a similar feeling about your top dials ?

Buttons on this camera are even smaller then buttons on E-M10 II and their feeling is not nice at all.

The body feels more plasticky and worse than my old and cheap E-M10 II (not even comparing it to my E-M1 II, Pen F or E-M5 II) ...

Olympus E-M1 Olympus E-M5 II Olympus OM-D E-M10 Olympus PEN-F
