Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mk II: All Hail the New Street King

News, Photography / Monday, March 9th, 2015


It’s fast, small and quiet–I mean deadly silent. I thought the E-M10 would be the perfect complement to my E-M1, well that all changed earlier today when the E-m5 Mk II hit the doorstep and I unpacked it, inserted a battery and memory card, and mounted a lens. The fact that it uses the same battery as the E-M1 is an extra plus and you can see that the size difference between it and the E-m10 is negligible. It handles better, has better stabilization and the build quality is on par with the flagship E-M1 model in a smaller package. If you thought Olympus and the Micro Four-thirds system was dead, think again because they keep coming out swinging. I’m all in. Fuji, your move.
