Here we are comparing two cameras with different body types: Canon 5D MIV, which was introduced in August 2016 is a Advanced DSLR camera with a 30.0MP Full frame sensor whereas Olympus 1s, which was introduced in April 2015 is a Small Sensor Superzoom camera with a 12.0MP 1/1.7' sensor. There is 16 months difference between 5D MIV and 1s so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger 5D MIV, especially in sensor tech.
Comparing a DSLR camera to a Fixed Lens camera is not an easy task but we will do our best to make this a fair comparison. Fortunately, you can't go wrong with any of these cameras as we rank them amongst Top 10 cameras in their classes. Canon 5D MIV is ranked #6
out of 93 Advanced DSLR cameras with an overall score of 81 whereas Olympus 1s is ranked #9
out of 245 Small Sensor Superzoom cameras with an overall score of 61.
Here is a brief look at the main features of Canon 5D MIV and Olympus 1s before getting into our more detailed comparison.
Let's read on the following sections in order to better understand in detail how Canon 5D MIV and Olympus 1s compares and hopefully end up with enough arguments to decide which one is better for you.
