Here's where you find the best of the best, our top digital cameras across the board.
An excellent entry in the Micro Four Thirds universe, the Olympus PEN E-P5 should please a lot of folks, but it's also expensive given that it doesn't deliver best-in-class photo quality.
While there are some other enhancements to the camera, a grip may be the most notable.
One of the fastest, most feature-laden cameras you can buy for less than $1,500, you really need to spend some quality time going through all the settings before using the Olympus OM-D E-M1.
Though it doesn't deliver the best photo quality, the sum of the Olympus OM-D E-M10's design, performance and features add up to a nice upgrade from a point-and-shoot.
The TG-3 is just as tough as its predecessor, but gets a cool new macro trick and accessory, while the 24x compact zoom SH-1 gets styling and image stabilization to match the company's interchangeable lens cameras.
Despite a sensor and LCD upgrade, this doesn't seem like a major change from its predecessor.
While it's not the best in any particular aspect, and you probably don't want to use it for video, the Olympus PEN E-PL3 offers an excellent balance of size, features, performance, and photo quality for the money.
This rugged ILC delivers excellent photo quality, but there's a real difference between raw and default-quality JPEGs.
If you're looking for a step-up model that's still pretty compact, the Olympus PEN E-PM1 is a solid, affordable choice.
Reasonably priced for an interchangeable-lens model, with the same high-quality photos of its siblings, the E-PL1 nevertheless suffers from slow performance that makes it a poor choice for snapshooters looking to upgrade.
