Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II DxOMark Review: It Has the Best MFT Sensor!

DxOMark published their Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II sensor review and test results: The new Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II mirrorless camera achieved an excellent overall DxOMark sensor score of 80 points, with a combination of 23.7 bits color sensitivity, 12.8 EV dynamic range, and 1312 ISO low-light score – The new Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II has the best performing Four Thirds sensor!

“With an DxO Mark score of 80 points the new E-M1 Mk II has the best performing Four Thirds sensor in our database. It’s ahead of the previous best used in the high-end Lumix DMC-GX8 from consortium partner Panasonic by five points. Olympus claim it’s a newly developed sensor and with lower noise, and both wider dynamic range and improved color discrimination at all ISOs it is one of the most significant upswings in performance we’ve seen in this format.”

From DxOMark Conclusion:

Although consortium partner Panasonic has since announced the video-centric Lumix DMC-GH5 at the same price point, at around $2,000, the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mk II seems at odds with the previously competitive pricing of the Four Thirds models. All the same, the E-M1 Mk II remains one of the most intriguing and appealing cameras announced in recent months, while the sensor itself sets a new standard for that format.

Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II: $1,999 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, FocusCamera.
