Olympus OM-D E-M10 II review

 

Olympus' E-M10 II is the perfect starter camera for going mirrorless, or a worthwhile upgrade.

We can easily recommend the E-M10 II for those looking to make the move to an affordable ILC or those with older cameras looking to upgrade. For only $50 more, spring for the kit lens version if this is your first Olympus ILC. It may not have every...

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II review:

 

The Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II joins the ranks of cameras such as the Panasonic Lumix G7 and Fujifilm X-T10 whose manufacturers hope to lure entry-level dSLR buyers away from bread-and-butter models like the Nikon D5500 and Canon EOS Rebel T5i/700D ....

The OM-D E-M10 Mark II offers some unique but useful features in a smaller-than-a-dSLR design.

The grip could be bigger and its continuous shooting can't keep up with the competition. Plus, you really need to read the manual unless you're running on full auto.

Attractive and compact, with a broad feature set, solid kids-and-vacation performance and nice photos, the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II is a good choice for photographers on a budget who like to fiddle.

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II (Body only, Black)

 

The camera's currently priced at $750 (£650, AU$1,000) for the kit with the 14-42mm power zoom lens, though I expect that to drop as it gets a little older. At this price, it's on the expensive side relative to competitors.

Olympus OMD EM10 II review

 

The Olympus OMD EM10 Mark II is a compact mirrorless camera, aimed at hobbyists who want a step-up in quality and flexibility without breaking the bank - or their backs. Announced in September 2015, it's the fifth OMD body from Olympus, a range that's...

Compact body with decent control system ; Very effective built-in stabilisation that works with any lens ; Large viewfinder image and tilting touchscreen ; Fast AF with great face detection. Works well in low light ; Built-in Wifi with decent mobile...

Resolution at the lower end of its peer group. But still good ; Continuous AF becomes less confident with fast subjects ; Timelapse and miniature movies encoded at low frame rate ; No input for external microphone ; Menu system confusing at times

The Olympus OMD EM10 Mark II is in many ways the perfect mid-range camera. With decent image quality, interchangeable lenses and stacks of shooting options, it offers sufficient control for those who want to pursue sophisticated photography, but its...
