    Picture quality

    Don’t be fooled with megapixel and/or sensor battles out there. This gear is a powerful beast, image quality from a micro four thirds is superb, I was able to print 16x30 no problem, If I want bigger than that, I can because of its 40mega pixel sensor shift capability of this camera. Ibis is the best. Very good for sports with the speed of this camera’s auto focus and travel because it’s lught weight and am able to carry 2 primes and my 12-40 f2.8 pro lens. At the end of the day, what makes you good at what you do is to know how to use your gear.

    Purchased in September and took on vacation and had fantastic results. Along with being very light weight the camera and lens produced photos as good if not better than my heavy Nikon gear . I will be purchasing more Olympus and Panasonic lens in the near future.

    If I was only able to have one camera this would be the camera considering it’s size weight it’s waterproof abilities. It is not as good in low light is my full frame camera but I didn’t expect it to be. Buy it great product

    Direct access to Functions. Run and Shoot.

    Posted .

    WOW. Just like my EM10.2, I can look through the EVF on the bright sunny days and pull the focus box on the back panel. There are more buttons with more functions that can be assigned without without fumbling around the Super Control Panel (SCP) or menu. I can hit the HDR button while in any PASM mode and scroll through the modes without the SCP or menu. I can do a white balance with one touch. I owned the camera for a month and have not thought of what function to button reconfiguration yet. There are enough functions and reconfigurable buttons for run and shoot photography without fumbling around. When you need the SCP, just duck into a shady spot or reconfigure a button to run and shoot.

    Terrific Upgrade

    Posted .

    This is a fabulous upgrade from the OMD EM1. It has a fully articulating viewfinder, two SD card slots, excellent build construction and video capabilities. At $1999 for the body, this is not cheap. My wife and I travel a lot and I just got back from Mexico. This camera along with a few lenses is much lighter than a DSLR. There is an iPhone app that will geotag photos. The Panasonic GH5 will be released soon and is priced the same. The trade off is the GH5 has better video and is heavier. I have used DSLRs for years, but they are significantly heavier and do not have the video capabilities of the interchangeable lens cameras.

    Buying camera is tricky, you have to know what you exactly need. This one has smaller sensor, but small body with changeable lens. Cons is high ISO performance. Pros are too many to list.

    Picture quality, Price

    I've read many an article regarding this Olympus camera and almost everyone one positive. This micro 4/3 image machine is a masterful workhorse. There may be a setting in there somewhere that makes your morning coffee as well (LOL). I own cameras from Nikon, Sony, Panasonic and now Olympus. They are all good in there own right, but this little gem was worth the purchase. It may be a little much for beginners, but it will worth the study to shoot great images. The format offers smaller and more affordable lenses and don't worry about the naysayers, this is a pro camera that you can easily print 24 x 36 prints without loss of detail.

    Amazing Perfomer

    Posted .
    Cons mentioned:
    For video, Size

    I purchased this camera in December 2017 for the holidays. I am a long time Canon user, owning several bodies and a significant collection of "L" lenses. Suffice to say that my 1D (x)'s have taken me everywhere. Over that last years (several), I found myself just using the camera phone and not my Pro-Gear; to the point that it just sat there. The weight, size, and other factors let me just to walk away. Fast forward 2 years ago, and a long vacation trip. I purchased the Sony (A6300) with some good lenses. Mirrorless, experience in my past was horrid but, the Sony performed well. That camera system was lighter and much smaller than my canon but, never felt a "connection" with the system. My best description of someone it felt like a software company made a camera and not the other way around. The Olympus E-M1 Mark II has been that camera (It doesn't solve everything) that I take most often and everywhere. It's been to a severe and long-lasting downpour in the Appalachian trail, with no protection for over 2 hours. It's been dropped on a tile in a bowling alley, it's been in freezing weather with Snow..still going without a single issue. The Single focus is blinding fast (faster than the Sony). There's virtually no shutter lag, the creative modes (live time and live composition) changed the way I see and capture moments. Not carrying a tripod because of this mind-blowing IBIS is makes me take the camera everywhere. It's NOT a "Night Ninja"; meaning FF (Full Frames) still have an edge on paper but, for street photography at night...it's incredible (if you like the film look like I do and hate the surgical look). Nobody notices you, so no one is possing or angry. For travel, the main reason I bought it...imagine carrying 5-7 lenses, camera, spare batteries, chargers, memory cards/readers, backup drive, and more on a trip...and it's less that 8LBs!!!!!! The C4K video is impressive and Capable of 237Mbits (higher resolution than the sony's), and with the IBIS it looks like you have a gimbal while walking. No to the downside...video Continuous Autofocusing at night while tracking is not as good as the Canon or the sony...the Eye tracking is not as good as the new A7III sony. Battery life is about 488 (low- lots of 4k videos)-780 (avg with some footage) and 900-1100 (with no video). The primes lenses (45-75mm) none pro are genuinely amazingly sharp. The 75mm is as good at my Canon 70-200 L v2 if not better (the Bokeh)...the 12-40 F2.8 Pro is the leading workhorse...and stay's on the camera 90% of the time. I know own 14 Lenses (Olympus, Panasonic, and Laowa)...and the M4/3 (Micro Four Thirds) platform works amazingly!!! In Europe, you'll find places that you will NOT be allowed in with a typical DSLR of the Mirrorless FF (the lenses are about the same size on FF mirrorless as traditional DSLR's). In Certain Park tours in Africa the FF with command a higher "Tax" or entrance fee. I can take and hand hold an 800mm (Panasonic Leica) zoom all day. Try walking around with an FF, 70-200 F2.8, and a 24-70 F2.8 and a wide angle (all fast glass)...tell me how you feel at the end of the day. I typically only have 1 lenses for street photography...and maybe 2 for "Urban/city" travel (add a super wide angle)...so its not just about giving up light dominance (for pixel peepers), it's not about walking away from 14Bit color, it's not about having less dynamic range. It's a compromise and acknowledgment that my 20MP is enough for my medium and needs. I post mostly online...My audience is online, so I'm deliberate on the use case and in that the Olympus ROCKS!

    Compact, Features

    I had an Olympus OM-1 film camera back in the 1970s, so I was attracted to the OM-D system partly out of nostalgia. :-) I like the design, compact size, and quality of construction. I have several lenses - two of the Pro series zooms (12-40mm f2.8 and 40-150mm f2.8), a 60mm f2.8 macro, and a 17mm f1.8. The E-M1 has lots of features, and I'm still learning them all, but so far it's been a great camera.

    Cons mentioned:
    For video

    I was initially concerned about the price but had read so much about it. I had used Olympus digital cameras many years back before moving to Sony, Nikon and Panasonic. I always had good experience with them. I have used combinations of 4/3 Oly Zuiko and Panasonic Leica lenses so far with no issues. I really like that I can use both since I eventually plan to get the Pany GH5 for video. Getting really great results and I am still learning. Once I get up to speed, I can't wait to see results with some of the PRO series zoom lenses. I wanted to check results on lower end lenses before investing any more into the system. The lower end lenses are keepers too. I had resisted buying it because I did not see it anywhere. Then my local best buy store brings it in and I was sold after 1 hr with it. Subjects I like to shoot: nature, sports, airshows and the usual candid family photos. I also do some limited 4K photo/video for family.

    great semi/pro level camera

    Pros mentioned:
    Performance
    Cons mentioned:
    Size

    A definite improvement over the E-M1 mk i if you need the extra speed, the 4K video, incredible improvement in the image stabilization (which was excellent in the original model), and other newer features.... there are far too many improvements to summarize here. Not such an big improvement if you are strictly looking for higher ISO performance over the mk i version. If this is your main consideration in upgrading from mk i to mk ii, you might not get the jump in low light /high ISO performance you are hoping for. The increase from 16 to 20 MP helps outright resolution, but it's not a quantum leap in improvement. AF performance for moving objects is definitely better. I was tempted to get the Nikon D500 but decided the overall size of that system was too large for my needs.

    Doing my transition from a SLR to mirrorless... Great camera, compact, lightweight. Optics are extremely sharp (60mm macro) … Trying to absorb and learn its menus, which are quite different from my previous camera. Will require a lighter tripod (from the one I currently use) and some $$ to get two more lenses. Very enthusiastic with this purchases!!!

    The Pro Capture feature is great. So many times when you hope you reacted fast enough, you actually didn't. Now it's hard to miss the shot. Battery life is so much better than the 5 mkll.
