Surpassed all expectations
A long-time Nikon shooter (with a large collection of lenses), I wanted to give the E-M5 II a try as a possible lighter weight backup to my Nikon system. And now, after shooting with the Olympus for a few weeks I am contemplating selling all of my Nikon kit and moving to m43 full time. Pros of the OM-D E-M5 II: -- Impressive build quality -- Surprisingly usable EVF (moving away from an OVF was a major concern that delayed my trying a mirrorless camera; but after a couple of days with the Olympus that concern was quickly dispelled) -- Excellent and speedy AF with static and slower moving subjects -- Pleasing color rendition -- Tiny but superb quality lenses -- Loads of customizable controls Wishes: -- Ability to save and recall customized settings. I devoted many hours to setting up the camera to my needs, and I live in dread that a future firmware update would wipe everything out and force me to do the whole thing again. -- Ability to assign AF-On to Fn-1 (which I have done), while also assigning AEL to a half press of the shutter button. I don't believe that's possible now. All in all the E-M5 II is a camera that has reinvigorated my excitement about photography. I am already looking ahead to acquiring an eventual E-M1 Mark II to partner with it.

happy user
I have been travelling a lot with my nikon D7000, but it started to be heavy in my backpack, plus I carried wide-angle lens. After hours of research, I finally got my hands on the OM-D E-Mark II. What a diffence in size and weigh. It feels good in my hands with the HDL-6, the total weigh is less than my wide-angle lens alone. So far, the pictures are as good as my nikon. There are so many ways tp customize the buttons. The apps to sync the camera with my smartphone is easy to use and works great. I can't wait to use it on my next trip.

Great product !
I am new to mirrorless camera. I have spent hours and hours researching cameras over the last few months. I finally decided to buy the OMD EM5 II in black with the Olympus lenses 17mm f1.8 and 14-150mm II (backorder) with lens caps and Olympus pro filters. One of my main priorities in a interchangeable lens camera system was portability & compactness and this camera fills my expectations and needs. I absolutely love the design and build quality. I have been using it paired with the 17mm f1.8 prime lens for the last week and I am very satisfied with the results. I can't wait to try the new 14-150mm II for my next vacation, only one lens on vacation will be great.

This is my first Olympus camera and it is definitely the best camera I've ever owned. The image color and quality is amazing and I love how light the camera as. I do a lot of back country backpacking and it's the perfect size and weight so that I don't mind bringing it along when I already have a pretty heavy pack. I have found that the internal computer can sometimes be a little slow, but the quality and size make it worth it. I love this camera and would definitely recommend it! I've never used a camera that takes shots that look so close to real life.

Amazing Performance
I have been an avid Nikon DSLR user since 1985. My latest was the D610. My right arm became so sore from shooting events for the MS society that I could barely hold the Nikon steady with the pro lenses. Another professional photographer suggested that I look at Olympus. I purchased the OMD 5 Mark II on a whim. At first I had to laugh because the camera with a lens attached weighted less than one pro Nikon lens. On my first trial shoot I was stunned at the sharp colorful pictures which rivaled the Nikon. Since that first experience I have purchased the Olympus pro lenses and flash. The Nikon was sold and I never looked back. Recently my wife and I vacationed in Canada with close friends. I made a blue Ray video of the trip and all who viewed the video were blown away. The pricing on the OMD 5 Mark II makes it a purchase worth its weight in gold. Thanks Olympus,you saved another arm.
