    great info. Just purchased this camera M 10 iii and still just going out shooting in different modes by way of experiment.
    Your post was inspirational.
    Big thank you

    As a photographer of many years, the best advice is, use what works comfortably FOR YOU. I also use the Olympus cameras, primarily because I like and therefore WANT to use it. The tiny Olympus E PL8 with the same 17mm lens is even more compact/unobtrusive, with most of the same features, and has given me images I can sell at art shows. My previous Sony gave great results also, but I just didn’t enjoy using/carrying it.

    There are very few comments/reviews on the em10 iiiS which has a true silent mode independent of the AP mode. Can someone comment on this camera which to my mind, would be even more versatile at street shooting. Olympus released this model some time after the iii. They should have made a firmware update for the original to bring it up to specifications.

      Great review, thank you!
      I wonder, if the Lumix LX100-II would work just as good? It’s even a bit smaller, has a sharp and fast 24-75mm (equiv.) lens, and having a leaf shutter is very useful if you use flashlight.
      It’s quite old, but I guess it won’t get a successor.

        First, I would not worry about the age – I’ve worked with the LX100 I and it was already a fantastic camera. However, the lens is not very well sealed and it is a common issue that dust gets inside causing visible image defects. Repair is impossible as the whole lens unit has to be trashed. So I don’t know how this is with the Mark II but knowing that, I decided to get an E-M5I classic with a 14mm 2.5II by Panasonic instead. I can change components if something breaks and the M5 is just so inexpensive on the used market. Of course, you don’t get the zoom – but also consider the 14-42 EZ which is actually quite good!

      Found this info re: the Mark3 ‘S’ model.

      Rather than beating around the bush, we’ll get straight to the point: the OM-D E-M10 Mark IIIs is the OM-D E-M10 Mark III with a new silent shooting mode and a new ‘Instant Film’ art filter mode. Aside from these two small updates, the camera is otherwise unchanged from its predecessor. Absolutely nothing, inside or out, has changed, including the 16 Megapixel sensor, 5-axis sensor-shift IS and 121-point contrast-detection autofocus.

      I have two EM10’s – I have never seen this ‘S’ model in Australia.

    I believe, though I may be mistaken, that the EM10 Mark 2 that I have has the electronic shutter available without going into “advanced” mode.

      Yes, you are right about that!

    How did you manage to shoot that lady photo at ISO 1250 with almost no noise ? I had EM1 Mk1 and it was so noisy at ISO 800+
    Another question. Also would you know how much ISO invariance does this sensor has ? Can I underexpose by 2 stops and fix the exposure in Post processing without gaining any noise ? Great images btw. Thanks for your article.

    I thought the camera body is water sealed, can someone confirm this?
