Going solely on out-and-out image quality, the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III is left wanting compared to its rivals (though a boost in resolution to 20MP would have negated this a little). Image quality is still more than satisfactory though, and you'll be able to produce very nice A3-sized prints from your shots. 

But that's just one element, and you have to look at the OM-D E-M10 Mark III as a whole to see its charms. Its stylish design and solid-feeling body are much more satisfying than similarly priced DSLR rivals, while the compact proportions give it a distinct appeal over rivals.

The camera is easy to use for first-time users, while both features and performance will be sufficient to keep experienced users happy. The OM-D E-M10 Mark III might not be a massive leap forward over the Mark II, with much of the camera's specification remaining the same, but Olympus has refined and tweaked one of our favorite mirrorless cameras to make it an even more tempting proposition.
