Average Screen Size

With a screen size of 3 inches, the OM-D E-M10 has a fairly standard screen size compared to most of the other comparable spec cameras that have been on the market for around the same time as the OM-D E-M10.

We compared this camera to all the other 3" screen digital cameras and we think because of it's better review score, the Leica M[plb_2212774_price], and the Olympus PEN E-P5[plb_2032029_price] is also worth considering.

If this camera screen size is too small for you then you might want to look at the Leica T (Typ 701)[plb_2550905_price] (3.7") which is also higher rated.
