Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II Gets Gold Award at DPReview

DPReview published their full in-depth review for Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II micro four thirds mirrorless camera. The new Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II camera achieved an impressive 85% overall score and Gold Award from the experts at DPReview.

From DPReview Conclusion:

The OM-D E-M1 Mark II is Olympus’ most ambitious camera yet and it blows away its peers in terms of raw speed – and it’s no slouch when it comes to photo and video quality, AF performance and build quality. The Mark II is customizable to the point where it’s overwhelming, so it’s not for everyone. It’s may also be a budget-stretcher for a lot of people. Aside from those and a few other quirks, the E-M1 II is an interchangeable lens camera to be reckoned with.

Pros:

  • Market-leading image stabilization for both still and video shooting
  • Hybrid AF system is quick and generally tracks subjects well
  • Weather-sealed body is sturdy and has well-placed buttons and dials
  • Incredibly customizable
  • New 20MP sensor increases resolution without impacting noise levels
  • High bitrate UHD and DCI 4K video
  • Continuous shooting at 60 fps (single AF) and 18 fps (continuous AF)
  • Dual SD memory card slots
  • Above average battery life
  • High Res Shot mode offers extra detail and improved handling of motion
  • USB 3 (Type C) jack
  • Clever articulating external flash included

Cons:

  • Expensive
  • Noise reduction in JPEGs a little strong
  • UHD 4K not as detailed as DCI; 1080p video is soft
  • Subject tracking can be unreliable during burst shooting
  • Customization options can be overwhelming
  • Placement of I/O ports can impede LCD rotation
  • Menu system is a step back from previous models
  • Highest frame rates with electronic shutter may result in rolling shutter effect
  • Only one SD card slot supports high-speed UHS-II media
  • Cannot enter playback mode while buffer being cleared
