The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III Black is a high-end for photo and video creation. It offers the same reliable build quality, accurate autofocus and performance as the popular E-M1 Mark II but packed into the stylish body of the E-M5 series. Paired with an Olympus M.Zuiko lenses this puts the power to create amazing images and videos in front of you.

20.4-Megapixel Image Sensor

The new E-M5, version III now sports an impressive 20.4 megapixelLive MOS sensor allowing capture of an image with a very high level of detail. For video, the high-end sensor now records a 4K video at 30p.

121 All Cross-Type AF Points

The upgraded autofocus system includes an 121-point phase-detection system perfect for tracking moving subjects across the frame with accuracy. The E-M5 MkIII utilises cross-type autofocus pointsfor dramatically improved accuracy compared to regular-type points; paired with shutter speeds up to 1/8000sthe camera is an action powerhouse.

5.5 Stop Image Stabilisation & Sync IS

The EM5 III delivers a whopping 5.5-stops of in-body image stabilisation. This supercharged IS unit, is in-body so it works with all lenses, even those with no stabilisation. By utilising the Sync IS system, the EM5 III will combine stabilisation from the camera body and the lens, allowing for an impressive 6.5 stops of total stabilisation compensation; wonderful for low light photography, handheld video, and telephoto shooting.

High Performance in a Standard Zoom Range

The Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-45mm F4.0 PRO lens gives high quality and performance in a standard zoom range. It is compact, lightweight and portable while giving a fixed large aperture of f4.0. The compact size is apparent especially when compared to larger full-frame lenses.

Dust, Splash & Freeze Proof Build Quality

The lens and body combine to create a reliable and robust kit as both units are dust, splash and freeze proof. This affords some extra piece of mind in harsh shooting conditions so that you can shoot with confidence in all weather.

High Speed Lens Autofocus

The 12-45mm F4.0 PRO Lens is a fast lens when it comes to autofocus and when paired with the Olympus EM-5 mkIII you are getting the most out of the kit. The result is excellent captures of fast moving subjects brought together by the speed and accuracy of this kit.

This kit includes the Olympus OM-D E-M5 III Camera Body + Olympus M.Zuiko 12-45mm F/4 PRO
