A new era in Micro Four Thirds technology is about to begin. The new, revolutionary mirrorless camera, the award-winning Olympus OM-D E-M5, has an exceptionally light and compact body. Its Electronic View Finder enables photographers to check exposure levels, white balance and preview Art Filter effects in real-time. When shooting, the photographer can instantly create a truly unique world and preserve it in exceptional quality. The world will be transformed from something you see to something you take part in.
The E-M5 features Olympus Zuiko 12-50mm f/3.5-6.3 M ED EZ MSC wide angle to standard zoom lens. This zoom lens has a maximum magnification 4.2X, covering a range that extends from a wide angle of 24mm (35mm camera equivalent) - ideal for taking wide shots even indoors - to a medium telephoto focal length of 100mm (35mm camera equivalent), - optimal for portraits. A newly developed motorized zoom mechanism makes smooth, quiet zooming while shooting movies possible. The AF system is based on the MSC (Movie & Still Compatible) mechanism enhanced by a newly developed linear motor drive that enables faster, quieter focusing. Dust and Splash Proof construction lets you shoot in harsh conditions without worry.
The FL-LM2 is a replacement flash for the original flash packaged with the E-M5. The FL-LM2 features the same dust-proof and splash-proof construction. In addition, the FL-LM2 has a GN of 32 @ 200 with a 28mm coverage, compact (1.7"x1.3"x2.1"), and lightweight (1.09oz). The FL-LM2 flash has a built-in flash charging circuit eliminating the requirement of batteries.
