OM System is the new name for what was formerly the imaging division of Olympus. It represents a continuation of a company that has been part of the photography landscape for over 70 years, and was one of the early consumer digital camera innovators. It was one of the pioneers of mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras and its range is focused around a series of mirrorless models that use the Four Thirds sensor format. The PEN and OM-D-series 'Micro Four Thirds' cameras have proven capable and popular with those photographers that value their relatively small size and weight compared to larger sensor systems.
Olympus offers a wide range of models in three distinct ranges; the entry-level FE series, the big zoom SP series and the ultra compact, stylish Mju / Stylus series. Although often laden with features, few offer much manual control.
Olympus offers a wide range of digitally-optimized (and highly acclaimed) Four Thirds lenses, mostly zooms, (which can also be on PEN cameras via an optional adaptor), as well as a slowly growing Micro Four Thirds lens lineup.
Olympus also markets a limited range of small form-factor dye- sublimation photo printers. It's P-range models are inexpensive, compact, and produce 6x4in prints.
