Our 2019 resolutions for Olympus:

  • Start making small cameras again.
  • Update the OM-D E-M5 II.
  • Simplify your cameras' menu systems, please!
  • Add PDAF to your lower-end PEN and OM-D cameras.
  • Add a large sensor to the TOUGH range.

How things panned out: 3/5

Olympus didn't release a whole lot of products this year, but the OM-D E-M5 lineup did see a refresh in the form of the very powerful E-M5 Mark III. Despite being packed with powerful features (many of which were inherited from the E-M1 Mark II) it is even smaller than its predecessor, and features on-sensor phase-detection autofocus.

Sadly it still features a dense and complicated UI / menu, but 3/5 ain't bad.
