Comprehensive, fast and ergonomic.
This camera is a fantastic upgrade to the E-M5 Mark II that I used for several years. The autofocus is blindingly fast and includes more options for fine-tuning the focus zone. I particularly like the enhanced HDR2 mode. The camera is very ergonomic with a fantastic grip and decent weight for carrying over my neck on long hikes. I carry it with one of three fast prime lenses (17,25,45) and do post-processing for cropping, tending toward the neutral focal length 25mm, but will be looking forward to using a faster pro zoom in the future. The functionality is exceptional and very customizable. The moisture resistance is key for me with 90% of my photography outdoors.

Mobility, Convenience, Features!
I sold all my 43rd gear to upgrade to EM1 II. First, I was not sure if it was the right move but I was compelled because of the on-line reviews it gets especially those photographers that switched from one manufacturer to Olympus. At the back of my mind, this will be a win-win situation for me since I am already familiar with the system and I have been using it for about ten years now so I pulled trigger! First impressions out of the box was the camera is very solid, like the tank just like my E-5 and I'm pretty sure that the weather sealing is just as reliable as my previous camera. When I started to dig into the menus and features...boy it blew my mind! One of the features that really stood out was the Pro Capture Mode- now I can take pictures even before it happens. Of course, this review will not be over without me mentioning the IBIS. It was already great in the EM-5 and now its phenomenal in this camera plus the 4K movie mode is a real plus! I cannot wait for my next tour travel with my wife to unleash the capabilities of this camera! Truly it is mobility, convenience and features in one package!

Lowlight photos of flying birds with 75-300mm zoom
That last software update was BRILLIANT! Today I was shooting in golden hour, taking handheld photos of flying swans at range, with the 75-300 zoom. Excellent results. More than that you could see the stabilization working in the viewfinder. Best camera ever!

My next camera!
I've rented this camera a few times, and loved the experience each and every time. I still use my E-M1 MK I to this day, but I find myself yearning for more - more battery life, more grip and more accurate/faster AF (E-M1x is too much camera for me). Soon my OMD family will be expanding.

Love the camera, no missing shots now with my Olympus 12-40mm F2.8
The product is excellent, perhaps a bit much. I love the fact the camera has been well thought thru and is not obsolete after you purchase it. Thank you for ensuring the camera will be good for a few years to come as it will take that long to learn everything on this camera. The camera is on the heavy side, once you start using the Pro-line lenses, which by the way can use some shading on the weight and the price point. It is good that Olympus gives some discount, but they are not enough. I end up buying a Panasonic Lumix G Vario 100-300mm F4.0-5.6 I. Due to the fact the Olympus 12-100 F/4 it is just unaffordable. Olympus should make this one their kit lens when selling this camera is the ideal lens for all occasions with the exception of a specific application, or need. I do see that now Olympus is offering this camera with the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-200mm F/3.5-6.3 Lens, thank you, but this is not your flagship, it should be the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-100mm f/4 IS PRO Lens on the new kits. Keep in mind, even though the camera is on the heavy side, still is the lightest DSLR Weather sealed out there. I am a Pentax girl and had to crossover do to the weight. I have no regrets of having crossed over. Every time that I use it I am pleased with the results. My only, not such positive comment is that even with the level II SD card I have to wait on the camera as I shoot too fast on occasions. Perhaps is now time for me to learn some of the other additional features that will handle this challenge. Thank you, keep up the great products and craftsmanship, Francia
