Although the body bears all the traits of a compact, you get the benefits of a range of different SLR lenses and if you purchase an adaptor, you’ll be able to use your existing four-thirds lenses as well.
Inside, the shooter boasts auto-intelligent scene selection, motion tracking, face detection and a nifty sensor that switches the preview from full-time live view LCD screen to the viewfinder when you hold the camera to your face. Neat.
The swing out screen and 100% field of view helps you take the perfect picture, while RAW capture mode and an HDMI out keeps things super detailed.
