Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II review

4.5
Verdict: Mirrorless cameras promise DSLR quality, features and controls in a smaller package, and the OM-D E-M10 is one of the smallest cameras to still deliver that DSLR feel.

Verdict: Olympus' OM-D range is getting stronger with every camera released. The E-M10 II provides a great entry-level option to those photographers who would like the idea of the OM-D system but aren't ready to spend upwards of £800 on the E-M5 II or E-M1.

Goondu review: Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II

No reviews
Verdict: Like many updated or refreshed models, the Mark II version of Olympus' OM-D E-M10 camera raises the question of whether it's worth the upgrade. There are definitely improvements but is it worth your dollars to go with the newest and latest?

Verdict: The OM-D E-M10 Mark II (E-M10 II in the following text) is the second generation of the Olympus entry level E-M system line. The first E-M10, introduced in January 2014, was a very small and compact camera with SLR design elements.

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II

4.0
Verdict: 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 .
Pros: The OM-D E-M10 Mark II offers some unique but useful features in a smaller-than-a-dSLR design
Cons: 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

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II

No reviews
Verdict: A heavy DSLR does you no good sitting at home. That's why the portable, lightweight OM-D E-M10 Mark II is such a joy. It's compact and easy to carry, unobtrusive enough for discreet street shooting but versatile enough – when paired with specialized lenses from the 20-strong and growing M.

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II

4.0
Verdict: The Olympus OM-D E-M10 II is an inexpensive yet well-specified mirrorless camera whose design, image quality, performance and feature set make it a compelling choice. That said, the E-M10 II's menus can be confusing, the lack of 4K video is disappointing, and subject tracking needs improvement.

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II

Very pleased!

5.0
Verdict: My first impressions are very good indeed. The camera and lenses arrived the next day after ordering, extremely well packaged, no chance of being damaged in transit. UK digital included a 5-year warranty which seems to be fantastic, hopefully I won't need to put it to the test.

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II

5.0
Verdict: Like most people, I built up the basic Canon EOS 35mm film package back when I first got married and started a family. I did not justify purchasing the Pro series lens back then, so I opted for the gold line EF series with ultrasonic motors. Basic coverage, I got 3 lens.

Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!

5.0
Verdict: I was looking for a camera that would perform better than my Nikon D7100. This is the camera. Recently I bought a Nikon Reflex-Nikkor 1000mm 1:11 lens. This lens hasn't been updated since 1976 and hasn't been made since 2005 so no auto-focus, VR, or anything modern.

OM-D E-M10 Mark II Bundle

4.0
Verdict: Great camera - seriously high quality. The EZ lens is a huge improvement over the older version.
Pros: Great camera - seriously high quality. The EZ lens is a huge improvement over the older version
Cons: Most of the stuff in the bundle is cheap quality, and I threw it out. I did some testing of the UV filters, and there was terrible degradation in quality. Same with the bonus lenses - really poor quality crap. The tripod is decent, but super light and a bit shaky.

Excellent Camera, Incredible Value

5.0
Verdict: Overall this camera is an excellent value, providing great image quality and a whole host of features while remaining in a small form factor. Low-light performance can be very good with fast prime lenses due to the 5-axis image stabilization (the low-light performance will actually out-perform APS-C...
Pros: - 5-axis image stabilization - Nice EVF - Great build quality and ergonomics while remaining lightweight - Very good IQ with plenty of dynamic range and resolution for my needs - Good lens selection with plenty of small affordable primes available - Touch screen
Cons: - No weather sealing - Difficult to achieve good subject isolation with 50mm-equivalent lenses due to micro four-thirds sensor

disappointed

4.0
Verdict: Disappointed in a few things. First off Amazon does NOT make it clear that the EZ is the smaller and more desirable lens. The less expensive one is very big and has locks before you can use it so if you want to take a quick shot of something- good luck!

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II

4.0
Verdict: When this camera was announced I, like most gearhead photographers, dismissed it as a beginner camera. Technically it is near the bottom of the brand's order, but nevertheless this camera does almost everything right. Size, features, performance and price are all noteworthy.

My favourite walkabout camera

5.0
Verdict: My favourite walkabout camera. It's well-built and light but has a reasonable 'heft'. Great functionality, but you have to get used to the Olympus menu system. I generally use it with an Olympus 17mm 1.8 lens.

Bang for the Buck

5.0
Verdict: First of all regarding the sellers: It is available through Deals Amazing and Tecki-Home. I initially purchased through Deals Amazing and they failed on their promise of delivering it. So I had to get the order cancelled after waiting for almost a week.

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II

4.5
Verdict: Had it about a month now and are really happy! Think it takes great pictures and good movies. Image Stabilizer really do their job when it comes to the movie! Good sized camera, it goes down in a jacket pocket so it brings out compared to a larger SLR.

A truly amazing camera, why would you need anything else

4.0
Verdict: I traded in my Pentax K3 a 24mp APS-C DSLR for this tiny, compact Olympus OM-D10ii, a Micro Four Thirds 16mp Mirrorless camera........and I don't regret it at all! This package came with two budget lenses, two incredibly small and lightweight lenses, the combined weight of all that was considerably...
