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...

Olympus E-M1 II Review

 

Packed with a new 20MP sensor, revamped AF system, faster image processor (two, in fact), 4K video and more, the E-M1 Mark II addresses the performance and C-AF shortcomings of the original E-M1 and pushes the envelope even further to truly provide...

Excellent image quality; Very good dynamic range & high ISO performance; Fantastic C-AF performance; Incredible burst rates, even with RAW; 4K UHD & Cinema 4K (DCI) video; Clean HDMI; Dual SD card slots

Expensive; Menus still confusing; UHS-II support only on one card slot; No optical low-pass filter means greater risk of moire; No built-in flash

This $2,000 Olympus camera is crazy fast, but can it keep up with the pack?

Review: The Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II’s adventures with action

 

The Olympus O-MD E-M1 Mark II is a very different camera, built to excel at fast speeds, where most mirrorless cameras falter. But it also commands a high price, so is the camera worth its premium?

Pro Capture Mode starts capturing images into the buffer the moment you half-press the shutter, when you fully press the shutter, the camera starts shooting and also saves the preceding 14 images into the SD card. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a...

In pictures: The new Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II flagship camera

 

The OM-D E-M1 Mark II is no simple upgrade. Olympus' new flagship mirrorless camera may look similar to the E-M1, but there's a lot more going on under the hood. Check out our gallery to see what's new, as well as find out our first impressions.

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.
