Rock steady: Olympus OM-D E-M5 II reviewed

Good solid review I think.

I bought an Em5 II and am liking it very much so far. With good lenses (I have the 12-40 f2.8, 40-150 f2.8 and 60 Macro) it’s a formidable camera. Yes, you will have better images at high ISO with some other mirrorless cameras, but I chose the OMD due to the excellent lens selection and size/weight advantages. It’s very versatile, robust, and can deliver great images.

I found it interesting that the review basically found the EM5 II delivers images equal or better than the Canon 70D, which I had considered buying a couple of years ago due to its features and lens selection, but passed because I wanted a smaller, lighter camera. With the EM5 II, I have gotten exactly that.

My only “gripe” is that it would’ve been ideal if the rumored upcoming new M43 sensor (18mp, huge DR, very low noise at high ISO) had d├ębuted in the EM5 II. Would’ve been the perfect model to show where M43 is going next. As it stands, it’s just a well refined version of what came before.
