Olympus held off from releasing any major products at Photokina 2014, but did unveil the OM-D E-M1 in a rather lovely silver finish.

The E-M1 is exactly what it sounds like: a silver-colour version of the original black model, but one that also delivers the latest firmware straight from the box. And that means some additional tweaks to the camera's operation.

Included in firmware v2.0 is USB tethering for mirroring live view to a screen, reduced viewfinder lag (down to 16ms from 29ms), a digital shift feature to correct for distortion, and two new Art Filters. Existing OM-D E-M1 users can grab that firmware too, available right now.

Otherwise the E-M1 in silver is the same solid slice of interchangeable lens loveliness. That means a 16-megapixel Micro Four Thirds sensor, weather-sealed body, fast autofocus and lots of customisation options.
