Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II

 

The Olympus E-M5 Mark II is a compact system camera with a Micro Four-Thirds sensor, and the sequel to 2012's OM-D E-M5. We flat-out loved that camera.

Great 5-axis OIS ; Excellent handling and controls ; Much-improved EVF

No 4K video ; Lesser detail and high ISO performance than some

Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II review

 

The Second Coming of the E-M5 smashes it on both design and performance fronts

Small, light and weatherproof ; Large, bright viewfinder ; Excellent image quality ; 5-axis image stabilisation allows slow shutter speeds

No 4K video recording ; High Res Shot only works in certain situations

With enough retro style to please the hipster inside you, and substance aplenty, this is a satisfying upgrade to the original E-M5

Olympus OM-D E-M5 II review: OM-D has landed

 

Thank the stars that Olympus has settled on a name and number, with the second-generation OM-D E-M5 deploying the "Mark II" badge of honour. That's earned confidence: rather than reaching into the numbers pool and being named an E-M27 or something, the...

Decent build quality and great retro style, 2x2 switch control, all-round improvements from first-generation E-M5, that 5-axis stabilisation system, High Res Shot for 40/64MP tripod-based shots

Too easy to knock front dial and press HDR button by accident, limited battery life as ever, low-light image quality limitations, no 4K video

Although image quality and autofocus ability aren't giant leaps ahead compared to the first-generation model, the E-M5 Mark II shows that OM-D has landed. It's a good-looking, classy performer that takes the original's concept and elevates it to a...

Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II review

 

This clever 16MP compact system camera can produce 40Mp or even 64Mp images

High quality feel ; Impressive 40MP/64MP images ; Excellent 5-axis image stabilisation

High Res mode demands a tripod and a still subject ; Some fiddly and complex controls ; Smaller sensor than some rival CSCs

The E-M5 Mark II is incredibly powerful and versatile yet small and light too. Olympus has introduced some very interesting technologies with real, practical value.

Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Olympus OM-D E-M5 was a brilliant camera, taking the technology behind Olympus's PEN line of compact system cameras and putting it in a more traditional, retro form reminiscent of the company's classic 35mm OM line. The OM-D E-M5 Mark II is a...

Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II

 

Yet another great camera from Olympus, but buyers will wonder about the price.

Great weather-sealed body, Image quality cannot be questioned, Loads of features

Resolution now too low, High resolution mode needs a tripod, Price is high

The Olympus OM-D E-M5 II is yet another strong candidate in the OM-D line-up, with 10 fps shooting, the 5-axis stabilisation, a good EVF and of course first-rate image quality, all coming together to make a solid mirrorless offering. Although its 16 MP...
