Olympus OM-D E-M1 II

 

The OM-D EM-1 Mark II is being touted as the camera to “change the game”, offering high-speed shooting for sports, wildlife and action, but while maintaining a small body size.

Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II review: The most formidable Olympus camera, ever

 

Ultimately, the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II is currently the best Micro Four Thirds camera for advanced photographers. That, in a nutshell, is why it's

Very fast ; Quick autofocus ; Articulated touchscreen ; Image stabilisation is unreal ; Mechanical and electronic shutter shooting modes ; Can be customised to the nth degree ; Ever expanding lens choice ; Sharp images at low to mid ISO settings

Image quality in low contrast light ; Limited dynamic range in high contrast light ; silent shutter is so discreet that it’s easy to forget what shooting mode you’re in ; It's an expensive purchase

The E-M1 Mark II is not only better than the original model in every way, it's better than most mirrorless in every way too.

Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II review

 

The best Micro Four Thirds camera yet

Unshakable image stabilization ; Bulletproof weather-sealing ; Laser-accurate autofocus

Pricey compared to rivals ; Dense menu systems ; As expensive as some full-frame cameras, or more so

With an expanded AF system, a fully customizable interface, solid video features and higher-res sensor, the OM-D E-M1 Mark II is Olympus' most impressive and feature-complete camera yet.

Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II

 

The Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II shoots faster and does more than other high-end mirrorless cameras, but it's also more expensive.

Up to 60fps Raw capture. In-body stabilization. Large, sharp EVF. Vari-angle touch-screen display. High-resolution capture mode. Robust lens system. Weather-sealed body. 4K video support. Optional vertical battery grip. Wi-Fi.

Expensive. Only one SD slot supports UHS-II. Tracking focus ineffective at top speeds. 60fps shooting is limited in duration. Very bright charging LED. Omits built-in flash.

The Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II packs more technical bells and whistles into its small frame than any other mirrorless camera we've seen. It has a blisteringly fast maximum Raw capture rate, even though it's very limited in duration, and a solid buffer...
