Great Product
I switched to the Olympus system from Nikon this winter and am very pleased with the performance. I purchased the OM-D EM5 Mark 2 with the 12-40mm f2.8 lens and could not be happier. It is a bit of an adjustment moving from full frame to MFT in depth of field perception, but otherwise I find my pictures to be very much the same. The color reproduction is fantastic, and I barely have any need to post process in Lightroom! Overall fantastic product that I can comfortably take with me anywhere, in any weather conditions and be confident!

One of the few things I ever returned in my life, despite a lot of great features
I bought the Mark II based on a salesmans recommendation. I wanted to love it, and I did love a lot of the features. It took a lot of study to find out which of the many menus I needed to access to set things like shooting in raw + jpg. The user-unfriendly menus did not daunt me. The grip was bad for me, I have small hands, but kept hitting menu functions. I tried the optional grip, but it has to be removed to change batteries, and adds weight to the camera. I loved the fully articulated screen, but was not thrilled at going down from my 24 mp Nikon to 16 mp. I did love the small size and the great lenses available. The less overall weight, for me, makes a big difference in the desire to lug it around all day, in addition to art supplies, snacks, and water. But the clincher to me was when mine got low on the battery, the screen kept going ballistic, flashing on and off constantly. Then the electronic viewfinder would not turn on, not all the time, but at least once a day. And at times neither the EVF or the screen would come on. I have had 35 mm cameras since 1976, digital ones since 1999. I have never had any of them malfunction. So despite the many great photos, missing shots because the equipment failed was not acceptable to me. I tried to do it 'right' this time and actually buy most of the lenses I always wanted. The lenses were great, but I switched to the EM-1, despite my fear that it will soon be replaced. There are a lot of things I loved about the Mark II though, and I hope I made the right choice! Hopefully, I just got the very rare dud.

Awesome Camera
I would consider myself an advanced amateur photographer. I became interested in photography a while ago. I went through some point and shoot cameras, then decided that I wanted to take my game to the next level, so I bought a Canon DSLR. After several years, my technique improved and I acquired some nice glass; overall I was happy with my setup. Over time however, I found myself taking more and more photographs with my iPhone and less with my DSLR purely because my iPhone was so much more convenient to carry around with me. Around Christmas last year (2015), I found myself looking to buy a new camera. I wanted something that had decent video (since I am expecting a baby in the new year, I'm not a videographer but I wanted a camera that would allow me to capture short video clips and had autofocus capability). With some research under my belt, I decided to buy the OM-D EM5 Mark II (along with the 12-40mm f2.8 PRO and 45mm f1.8 lenses). I'm really glad that I made these purchases. The EM-5 II is exactly what I needed. First of all, my kit (the camera with the 2 lenses) is much smaller and hence much more portable, so I have the camera with me when I need it. The ability to employ photographic techniques that I would typically need my DSLR for, allows me to create stunning images, almost at will. The image stabilization is phenomenal, and I'm able to shoot hand-held at shutter speeds that I would have never considered with my old camera. The video capability is just what I needed it to be (crisp sharp video, with decent autofocus). There are some things that could be better (such as low light performance, and I hear that the video mode is not the best on the market), but the images and videos that I am creating are awesome, I am super happy with the OM-D EM5 Mark II.

Great camera
Was bought as an upgrade for the OM-D E-M10. Very nicely build - I use it mainly in combination with the 12-40 2.8 and the additional external grip HLD-8G or in a more compact setting with a prime lens but with out the grip. The difference to the OM-D E-M10 you are going to experience immediately is that the mechanical shutter and the IBIS are much more silent. Especially when used with the handgrip design becomes a bit crowded due to the high number of control dials and buttons. In the beginning Camera was promoted with better Video capabilities, anyhow I am not to impressed by that and there maybe better options around

The only camera you'll need!
This is an amazing camera all around! Very fun, useful and creative settings when you don't want to play with the manual settings and lighting. It's sturdy, compact and very easy to operate. The range of lenses in this compact operating system has me wondering if I'll ever us my Canon Rebel again. It goes with me easily everywhere so I have no excuses not to take the 'good camera' with me on holiday trekking. The picture quality is unparalleled and battery life is superior,
