While I adopted mirrorless for my personal photography five years ago, I only felt it truly came of age with the original OMD EM5 a couple of years later. It combined retro looks with modern functionality, delivering a highly enjoyable experience that was unbeatable at the time.
Small weatherproof body with great controls., Fantastic built-in stabilization works with any lens., Big, detailed viewfinder and fully-articulated touch screen., Fast accurate focusing with great face and eye detection., Built-in Wifi with powerful mobile app. USB tethering too.
Native image quality similar to previous models., 40MP mode requires specific conditions and lenses to shine., Continuous AF becomes less confident with fast subjects., Timelapse and miniature movies encoded at low frame rate., Slow wakeup when Quick Sleep is enabled.
The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II has a unique high-resolution capture mode, but it's not the best camera for shooting fast-moving subjects.
Compact. Quick 10.4fps burst rate. Sharp EVF. Vari-angle touch-screen LCD. Excellent control layout. 40-megapixel High Res mode. In-body image stabilization. Weather-sealed design. Large lens library. PC sync socket. Wi-Fi.
Limited shots per burst. High Res mode requires sturdy tripod and static subject. Subject tracking disappoints. Omits built-in flash. Lacks 4K support.
The OM-D E-M5 Mark II picks up where its Mark I predecessor left off, refining the concept of a DSLR-like – and DSLR-lite – CSC to a finely-polished article.
Excellent operating speed; Great build quality including weather resistance; Full customisation of most controls Great JPEG image quality
Raw image quality doesn't quite match competition; Menu interface somewhat challenging; A few design errors
The E-M5 II is a great all-rounder that improves over its well-respected predecessor in almost every respect. Although it faces stiff competition from higher-resolution peers in this segment of the mirrorless market, the combination of a deep feature set, extensive customization and...
Very good image quality - good dynamic range and color, Extensive and customizable external controls, Excellent build quality and sense of solidity, Class-leading image stabilization - also available for video recording, Broad set of features to support video shooters, Clip-on flash can be rotated...
Low resolution by contemporary standards, Complex menu system and extensive customization options can be overwhelming, Video output not as detailed as it could be, Default autofocus settings limit camera performance
The electronic viewfinder (EVF), which shows 100% of the scene, has also been improved and has 2,360,000 dots rather than the 1,440,000 dots of the original E-M5's.
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 new E-M5 Mark II is an excellent camera, and deserves an Editors’ Choice award. There are very few flaws, and the combo of the body and the M.Zuiko Pro lens is a beauty. If you’re an existing Olympus MFT user, it’s a terrific upgrade.
Meet the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II, an advanced interchangeable lens camera that's not only compact, dustproof, and splashproof, but also stuffed with new technologies to capture unparalleled high resolution still images and HD videos.
All shooting modes are accurate and easy in all situations, iAuto produces a much brighter, more vivid image, Dedicated Video Capture Button is always ready to record, Weather-Resistant body is ready for almost any shooting conditions, Excellent overall image quality, 5-Axis image stabilization is...
Some may consider iAuto to be over the top with color, almost unrealistic
If you’re looking for a small and portable yet powerful camera that’s a good alternative to heftier digital SLR models, Olympus’ OM-D line of mirrorless compact system cameras are some of the best options out there.
In early 2012, Olympus ignited a passion for mirrorless cameras in many photographers with the debut of the Olympus E-M5. Resurrecting the company's historic OM-D brandname, the E-M5 positively packed in the features in a compact body that truly delivered on the promise of a mirror-free design.
Great handling after an initially-steep learning curve, Very compact, considering its comprehensive feature-set, Side-mounted tilt/swivel screen is much more versatile than E-M5's tilt-only screen, Dust and splash-proof body is extremely solid, with not a hint of panel flex or creak, Large, sharp...
Front and rear control dials are too easily bumped, changing settings by mistake, Speaker is poorly-placed, making it easy to cover with your thumb, Below average battery life has fallen further since E-M5 (but very good with Quick Sleep Mode enabled), Buffer depths when shooting raw have fallen...
The E-M5 Mark II is the first professional Olympus Micro Four-Thirds camera to enter its second generation. Even though it falls in the middle of the OM-D family, the E-M5 Mark II has an incredibly rich feature-set which almost matches the flagship E-M1 reviewed here Olympus OM-D E-M1 while offering...
Excellent image quality, Very good metering, Reliable Automatic White-Balance, Superb built-in stabilization, Virtually no shutter-lag, Fast contrast-detect AF, Fast shot-to-shot speed, Very responsive, Excellent automatic Manual Focus Assist, Good build quality
Poor color accuracy, Strong anti-alias filter, Not always Exposure-Priority and frequently wrong Live-Histogram, 1080p @ 60 FPS has recording 8s limit, 1s filming delay, Weak LCD hinge, Uncomfortable eyelets, Short battery-life
I bought this camera primarily for travel photography. I also have the Olympus E-PL6 which which is also a Micro 4/3 mirrorless camera but it does not have a built in viewfinder.
Light weight; full time live view on the 3 inch LCD screen; lenses are small and lightweight as compared to equivalent focal length lenses for the Canon full frame camera.
Since I have about 8 lenses for the Canon EOS 5D Mark II, I find that in order to match those lenses I will have to spend a ton of money. In addition, the Olympus has so much much flexibility and has a 200 page user manual, the learning curve is steep but I learn something almost every day.
Well designed camera that on first blush seems to handle well. However, in three months of ownership it has been functional for about two weeks. Both the function lever (on the first day of use) and one of the control dials (four days after returned from repair) have broken off.
I just recently purchased the Olympus OMD EM-5 ii. I also own a EM5 and a EM10. My new EM-5ii will replace my EM-5. I moved up to the EM5 ii because I like the wifi opportunities that the camera offers like the EM10 as well as all of the opportunities to do multiple custom settings relieving me from...
What a great camera! It's light, takes great pictures and has some great features. There is also a wide variety of lens choices. I love its built-in HDR, time-lapse video and high-definition picture options. I think its a great value.
I know, this a very subjective review. 5000+ captures within two months, never happened to me with any camera before. The camera + the PRO lenses are a joy to use. And post-processing the raw files in OV3 gives me the results I was looking for. Just having fun… Two captures from today:
