    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!
