When you're adventuring in unstable weather conditions, you need a weatherproof camera and lens combo that covers all the bases – after all, you can't change lenses in the pouring rain!
Luckily, one of my favorite all-weather kits is the subject of a great deal: save $550 on the OM System OM-5 with the Olympus 14-150mm lens. This is a great deal on what's my current favorite camera along with one of the most useful lenses I've ever owned, thanks to its weatherproof construction and 28-300mm equivalent focal range!
OM System OM-5 + Olympus 14-150mm |
was $1,849.98 | $1,299.98
SAVE $550 (B&H) The OM-5 is a Swiss Army knife camera, with a 20.4MP sensor capable of 80MP photos, 7.5 stops of stabilization, Live ND filters, and IP53-certified weather sealing. The weatherproof 14-150mm is the perfect partner!
Why do I love the OM System OM-5 so much? It's the perfect all-purpose camera for me. Its 20.4MP sensor is the perfect resolution for my needs – ideal for quickly uploading images to websites (like Digital Camera World!) or social media, but packing enough detail for crisp A3 and A3+ prints. And if I want more resolution, I can flick it into 50MP or 80MP Hi Res mode.
It has truly incredible in-body image stabilization, too, maxing out at 7.5 stops of compensation – which actually feels better than the same amount of stabilization on my Canon EOS R5, since the OM kit is so much smaller and lighter.
The Olympus M.Zuiko 14-150mm f/4-5.6 II lens doesn't always get the love it deserves, but consider this: it's a 28-300mm full-frame equivalent that's fully weather-sealed. It's absolutely tiny for what it is, at just 9oz and 3.27 inches when collapsed. Sure, there are sharper lenses out there, but this super-small superzoom handles all conditions and is a perfect lens for everyday shooting, travel, and all-weather exploration!
