Olympus OM-D E-M10 III vs E-M10 IV – The 10 main differences (extended)

The E-M10 series is the entry level segment in the Olympus OM-D range and has been popular since the introduction of the original E-M10 in 2014 thanks to the fair price and rich range of features.

Over the years, Olympus has streamlined the camera to make it more beginner friendly, but without making substantial improvements when it comes to performance or image quality.

The E-M10 mark IV is a breath of fresh air in this regard thanks to its a new sensor, an updated AF algorithm and a few other changes. Let’s see how it compares to its predecessor.

Olympus OM-D E-M1X vs E-M1 II – The 10 Main Differences

The E-M1 mark II was released in late 2016 and had impressive specifications for its time.

Not everything was perfect however. The autofocus, while improved compared to its predecessor, wasn’t the best in class, and many cameras that came soon after widened the performance gap. The Panasonic G9, for example, matched most of its specifications, and other products such as the Sony A9 (and Fujifilm X-T3 more recently) pushed the electronic shutter performance to new heights with the inclusion of a blackout-free live view.
