Perfect camera for a Art Photography
Amazing High-Resolution Camera in a small package. It is incredible how many things you can program on Olympus OM-D EM-1 Mark II. This camera allows you to tailor it perfectly to your needs, style, and comfort. It makes High Resolution fully detailed pictures, which they can rival Full Frame Cameras. It is small, light, and portable. I upgraded from an Olympus Om-D EM-5 Mark II to this wonderful, 20MP Olympus Om-D EM-1 Mark II. Right away I knew how much different both cameras were. Olympus OM-D EM-1 Mark II is a fully professional tool, which allows you to take great pictures in high resolution and great 4K videos. This camera does not leave my side. It is always ready for me to take pictures. Some functions and programing require you to be patient and you need time to learn. But the payback for it is huge. I used Canon cameras for thirty years, and then I both my first Olympus, OM-D EM-10 Mark II. I can tell you from my experience, Olympus is the best maker if it comes to digital cameras with incredible ability to adjust it for you. Canon camera's functions are totally limited comparing to any Olympus cameras, especially OM-D EM-1 Mark II. I think this camera is one of the best digital cameras on the market right now. I would say, if you can't afford an Olympus OM-D EM-1 Mark II, start saving all your money. It is that good.

A responsive, professional camera
Nerve damage 10 years ago forced me to dump my old Canon gear, and my salesperson talked me into an Olympus OM-D EM-10 (first gen). I was solidly impressed. When the EM-1 Mark II went on sale recently I grabbed one. Let's just say, shooting with it reminds me of my old Canon 1D Mark II, and that is quite a testament. This camera is fast, responsive, and very capable. Everything you want in a great camera.

Love the Mark II!
I have been an Olympus user for years (E1, E3, E5, EM1). I am a professional photographer now using the Mark II. I love the camera. The image quality is amazing and the Olympus colors are superb. With the grip, the ergonomics make it very comfortable and easy to hold for long periods of time. I find that by carrying two Mark IIs (one with the 12-40mm, and one with the 40 -150mm) and can get through most portrait sessions without ever needing to change lens. I love the cameras and the Olympus system!

Super camera, with superior features and quality.
What a camera! Everyone knows about Olympus camera's ability to customize, EM-1 Mark II puts it into another level. It is a dream machine, with 20MP Sensor, 4k Video, customization, quality, weatherproofing. All come together in this camera. It was not easy for me to afford it, I'm glad I did.

Truly Revolutionary
I bought this camera a couple of months after it released. The biggest reason had to do with IBIS. I was shooting mostly video and needed to use less gear due to a back injury that was really being agitated by larger gimbles and such equipment that was needed to get a professional result. I was worried about switching from full frame to such a smaller sensor and how it would affect my results. I kept hearing how great the features were, but I kept thinking that it must be at the sacrifice of overall image quality. There are a few things that this camera lacks, like a joystick, but I still think it is not only the best camera every made relative to the time it was released, it is possibly the best value on the market today. The only other real complaint I have is the fact that the size of the camera doesn't balance well with many of the pro lenses and you kind of need the battery grip, but with it, it is a very comfortable camera to hold all day. Next I want to cover some fo the complaints that I have heard from professional reviewers. First, I don't mind the menus. In fact, for me, this is the most intuitive camera I have every picked up. Some people hate it, but I like that the menu system has as many options as it does, but you can still access all your main settings in the quick menu. Having a lever that doubles your button layout is amazing. If I ever have to pick up another body, I quickly miss this camera. The image quality is among the best of any camera system on the market. It does have a unique look and perspective with M43, but it is one that I have come to favor. The Olympus Pro Glass is some of the best I have ever used, even coming from medium format, especially when using pixel shift. The thing that really sets this camera apart is the use and speed. Sure, you can do HDR photography, or even stacked images and focus bracketing in other cameras, but this camera edits in body and spits out a product. I don't think a more user friendly camera does exist. The Olympus colors have quickly become my favorite. The images really feel textured. While I will readily admit that ISO noise is obviously going to be higher than larger sensors, I should also point out that the look of the noise is actually attractive in that it mimics film grain. The video files are amazing. The autofocus, while not the best on the market, is competent for things like sports and wildlife. But it is the little things like not overheating. I vividly remember taking it as a backup to an outdoor event that was 130 with 100% humidity. It ran all day at 4K and was the only piece of equipment that didn't overheat despite it being the cheapest. The features on the camera are somewhat being caught up to by other brands since. I have been looking forward to the replacement camera that recently came out, not to mention the E-M1X, but other than a higher frame rate at 1080 and some internal filter, possibly some improved autofocus, and handheld pixelshift, I don't really see the need to upgrade. Maybe I just remember how far ahead this camera was of everyone else when it came out and want that again, so the fact that it is the same price as the E-M5iii right now, I can't recommend getting this camera enough.
