Retro stylings

The E-M1 retains the retro design of the OM-D line, though it's bigger than the E-M5.

Control freak

The E-M1 outdoes the E-M5 in the buttons-and-dials department. It also has a much better, deeper grip.

Programmable buttons

Olympus adds a couple of programmable buttons to the front of the camera body.

Cleverly disguised

The control with buttons for the drive, autofocus, and metering modes looks like an old-fashioned film winder.

Curves

Olympus keeps the curve manipulation tool it debuted in the E-M5. The E-M1 has a locked mode dial, and it adds a mode for the Photo Story feature, like the E-P5.

Color adjustment

This hue/saturation color-correction tool doesn't do anything new, but I think it's one of the best interfaces I've seen for making the adjustments.

New battery grip

Unlike the E-M5's optional grip, the E-M1's vertical grip doesn't attach to the side of the camera. But the E-M1 doesn't need that, because it has a real grip itself. It does have the same convention of using two programmable function buttons rather than duplicating the same functions as found in the horizonal orientation.
