Pros:Compactness, ergonomics, battery life, speed, menu completeness (although a bit messy), build quality, great system size compromise/image quality
Cons:AF not at the level of the latest competitors, Sensor...
Opinion:After using Nikon FF for years (D700 and D610) I came across an Em5mk2 and fell in love with the M43! Slowly I sold all the Nikon kit and I went totally to the M43, I had so many bodies and dozens of optics, and I can say that the Em1mk2 is the best M43 ever! I've never tried the G9 and I keep out the Em1x... but I think even feeling my feeling stays the same... It's an exceptional machine, ready responsive, with the battery that really lasts an infinity... the controls are perfect, all in their place and the dials are spectacular... The dimensions are perfect, nor too small as the Em10/Em5 and too big as the old reflexes... Perfect! The yield is the best of all the machines I have tried to date (em5mk2, em10mk2, g80, gx9, gx7, Pen F) the sensor holds up to 6400 iso and the recoveries are great! The AF is great, very responsive and fast in both afc and afs, the Traking works well, the eye facial recognition is not bad, although that Pana is another level... In my opinion, considering the release date, the car is perfect... certainly today in 2019, with the latest releases of Sony and Fuji, it takes Olympus to give a jolt to two fundamental factors: the AF that must absolutely improve especially in eye/face recognition, and the sensor! The sensor of the M43 we know is not and will never be an FF, but it takes the next generation to take a decisive step forward, as made to high ISO and Dynamic Range! I repeat, I am not asking for a level of the A7III, but I would like to see a decisive leap forward, not the very small improvements that we propose every time... if they can play the game well the M43 can have its say for many years, otherwise I see it hard... the competition is now fierce...
Pros:Great grip, size, weight, build quality, image quality, improved high iso hold, excellent battery life, great continuous car focus
Cons:No one who is not just a subjective perception
Opinion:I'm a digital Olympus user since 4/3 with the e-1 and that I started with the micro from the first Pen. Over time I pulled up in kit made of bright fixtures and zoom pros in addition to having had the em5, the em1 first series, the em5 second series and now the em1 second series, this to say that I know what I talk about when I express myself on the Olympus also because over time I got to to also try several full frames without ever falling in love with the format though. The em1 mark 2 is perfect for those who learn to use it and for those who know how to manage the hold at the high iso of the sensor through a correct exposure of the scene, I say this because I read everything and more and then I wonder if people know how to photograph or not. Up to 3200 iso files are great if you know how to expose it properly, at 6400 the noise is there but it is well workable in post production. Personally I never needed to go beyond the 3200 iso in my life and space from weddings to sporting events as a type. Of course, I think it is logical that if you spend more than 1,000 euros on a machine in front of you put adequate lenses and not those of the kits otherwise it is useless to talk about it. Finally we are with the battery, before I always had at least 4 in my bag, today with 2 I'm in place and the second sometimes I don't even have to use it. The stabilizer is as always the best on the market, thanks to the smaller sensor definitely and with the canvases is a boon. The grip is finally worthy of the name and I do not find my little finger twirling in a vacuum. Even the continuous self focus has finally made that leap forward that had been expected for some time although of my work almost always on the single focus that is lightning. My dream remains the body of the e1 of the old 4/3 with inside the heart of this em1 2 for ergonomics and beauty but also so we are.
Pros:Crazy stabilizer, focus, AF tracking, iso up to 4000 more than acceptable, live comp, hi-res, sniper burst, menu (just study it) appropriate and comfortable commands, TROPICALIZED, in hand falls well, construction, weight, optical viewfinder, 4K video, double slot.
Cons:so far I can only say that when you wave on the front control wheel you easily touch the shutter button.
Opinion:i'm going to have the 4/3 sensor first: I have this Oly after the mark 1 and the 10 mark II that I still have in my kit. This little gem I liked right away, I immediately know the speed and precision of the focus, even while frame from the crosshairs I can move area AF from the pad of the display (crazy) the Tracking AF does not give up the grip easily (perhaps in some difficult cases with little light). The knockout stabilizer, freehand photographer up to 13" without noticing any micromove (it seems to me a dream). Gentle and non-aggressive Iso up to 3200/4000 but with dedicated optics (sigma 30 mm 1.4) on this machine you almost forget them. The live comp is useful, never under/over. HI-res I tried this new element on this OLy PAZZESCO better than my Nicon D750 (only thing trespassing obligation) a resolution and range excellent (I print large-format digital photos) I tried to print with my plotter and I am very satisfied. Comfortable and really responsive controls, those who say that the menu is messed up have not studied it enough once you enter the OLy optics all clearer and faster, every now and then reset all functions and with 5 min refit everything. It falls well in the hand, the crosshairs excellent. It produces RAW and other softw HHRs. SODDISFATTO POSSO DO A LAST MY CONSIDERATION: those who despise it will surely have a 5/6000-dollar machine in their hand and then take crap photos, bha!!!
Pros:... All, resolution, scream stabilization, compactness and transportability, operating silencing.. Etc
Cons:Little things and/or trifles that some people try to aggravate, (perhaps for some form of profit)...
Opinion:Now I've tried many, the last brand was the Fuji. Nothing to say about the quality of its optics, but everything has changed since I found, to my enormous disappointment, a series of micromossi images that I adored.... Well, blessed that day that I got convinced by friends to buy the brand OLY with its stabilized bodies, from that moment around the world of images that I snapped has changed, but in particular I add to that host of amateur photographers and even Enthusiastic professionals of the excellence of Olympus stabilization. Street shots Freehand at 1/5 of a second, are beautiful and perfect almost not to believe, then its PRO lenses do the rest, let alone with the new flagship that in this field waste all. A news eye also to the silent operation that brings me back to my mind my Leica M6... I must also say that the quality 4/3 is enough and advances in my opinion to the vast majority of amateur photographers. This confirmed by some professionals who also do services for National Geographic...
Pros:Construction, controls, features (addictive), Optical park, price of the system, weight
Cons:If the high ISO yield is comparable to that of an APSC, the dynamic range is not yet
Opinion:Held 3 months, tested in depth during a photo trip of 10 days in Tenerife, where it was taken sand, brackish water, waves, wind and cold: never a hint of fatigue, even after having practically dipped for 20 seconds: clean and broken without flinching. From this point of view perhaps the most durable camera I have had. Sold unfortunately because the illusion to carry less weight with a yield "almost" FF was soon betrayed: I snapped (strictly in ORF) of the net backlight, and where with a FF, but also with an APSC, I would have recovered Benone, here I failed to Recover even Benino. Satisfied instead of the high ISO, on these were made some nice steps forward. For me, to date, the system is not yet mature enough at the performance level, to replace a FF system, also considering the price of the machine body only, if you work in the Landscape. I find it suitable for photos in controlled light conditions (study) or, considering the ratio price-magnification, to those who make naturalistic (you can have a 300 F4, equivalent 600 F4, at a quarter of the price of any other similar focal of any other brand On the market). In this case, features such as the 18fps, the possibility to record the shots as soon as it is focussed (even before you crush the shutter button thoroughly then), the strength of the body, the quality of the lenses, and the yield to mid-high ISO, can make the throat of those who do not It wants or can no longer carry the following kg and kg of equipment. For me to postpone when it will have a really competitive sensor, the system has the cards in order to trouble the older sisters!
