The direct successor to the award-winning Olympus E-3, the Olympus E-5's all-terrain lightweight rigid magnesium alloy body is dustproof, splashproof, incredibly robust. The new flagship combines Four Thirds lens compatibility and a more powerful image processor to deliver photographs of the very highest calibre. In tandem with the remarkable Zuiko Digital lens system, the new 12.3 Megapixel High Speed Live MOS sensor and TruePic V+ engine with Fine-Detail Processing technology capture more detailed and sharper images than comparable resolution D-SLR's with larger sensors, setting new standards in reliability, speed and creativity.

In addition to Olympus' unique Supersonic Wave Filter dust reduction system, it features a 3 inch VGA Swivel LCD, a 1/8000 sec. high-speed shutter with 5fps sequential shooting, IS0 6400, HD Movie, wireless flash and ten Art Filters. With the E-5, professionals can stay creative in virtually any conditions. If they can hack it, so can their camera. Ideal for go-anywhere, shoot-anything photography.

The Olympus E-5 will be available for £1500 in the next couple of weeks.
