The Olympus OMD EM1 Mark II, WOW what a camera!
As an owner of an Olympus OMD EM-1, I am a believer in the micro four thirds format. The new EM1 Mark II nicely compliments my system. Both cameras have very good image quality, durability, and the perfect size for me. What sets the Mark II apart are the fantastic upgrades! Although I am primarily a still photograher, It is great to now have Cinema 4K Video! I shoot a lot of event photography and travel photography. Olympus PRO lenses are hard to beat for image quality. The Mark II beats everything in its class for burst rate. I have shot some wonderful high speed bursts at my Grandson swinging a baseball bat. PRO Capture really works to capture that exact point when the bat meets the ball! Autofocus is super accurate and with my new PRO 12-40mm f2.8 lens, my images are tack sharp. Portraits have excellent bokeh. I am amazed at the long exposures now possible with the improved 5-Axis Image Stabilization. With a compact size and controls that fit perfectly in your hand, the Olympus OMD-EM1 Mark II is a joy to use. This camera is a precision photographic tool that is and worth every penny. I am looking forward to explore its many features.

Fast camera, great built in IS, high quality video/4k, small size make it great for travel
This is my first real camera as I wanted to get more into photography, and I'm happy I bought it! I shoot a lot of action sports so I wanted a fast camera so I wouldn't miss a moment. The built in IS paired with the new 12-100mm lens make crisp handle held shots every time, and videos look like your using a gimbal.I admit the image quality might not be as good other cameras (DSLR) out there but it's worth having a smaller set-up for traveling. Battery last amazingly long too.

The perfect 4/3 camera
For years I have resisted using a camera with exchangeable lenses. I did not want to deal with the weight of the pricier DSLR's and the smaller cameras just didn't meet my criteria for what I wanted in a camera. Then the M1-Mark II came along. Every time I use it I feel amazed at its responsiveness, quick focusing, and great image resolution. The Zuiko Pro zoom lenses are the cherry on the top. Really happy I invested in the Olympus system.

I love the camera and eagerly await some video and autofocus updates
My last camera was the Panasonic G7 with their 14-140 lens. I switched to the em1 mkii for stabilization benefits, cinema 4K, weather sealing, headphone jack, 2 sd card slots. My first impression was, wow, I liked the G7, but the ergonomics of the em1 mkii are even better! I like the button placement and it seems easier to use custom buttons etc. my second impression after using it with Olympus 14-150 and 75-300 was that, at least with those lenses, I feel Panasonic autofocus is better. I have found the focus hunt way more than expected. Hopefully it will get improved in an update. Hopefully I will also be able to buy some better Olympus lenses and check focus speed on them. I would like a flatter video profile, maybe some slow motion modes, and actual 237 Mbps in 4K cinema. Most people are getting like 50 or 70. Overall I really like it, I need more free time to actually enjoy it :) I am definitely looking forward to improvements with updates, that will make or break my long term view of the camera.

Great camera!
The E-M1 II exceeded my expectations! It's not my first four thirds camera, but up to now my primary camera was a Sony (A77) and my second smaller camera an E-M5. My A77 will go on ebay and I will use my new E-M1 II and my newer E-M5 II. After I started using the E-M1 II, I didn't want to use my old cameras any more. Why? First, fantastic image stabilization. If you hate tripods like I do, you will love this camera. Unbelievable and a game changer. I'm having so much fun indoors and outdoors at dusk and after dark. I like technology, and Olympus does not disappoint on that front! First is the incredible configurability. But also features such as pro capture (also a game changer!) and focus bracketing (and stacking if you have the right lens). And finally birders can feel comfortable with a non-DSLR camera! I appreciate the "fully" articulated LCD, but it's not as "articulated" as the Sony A77... I like being able to turn the LCD in to protect it and to not have it come on. I will miss in-camera GPS most of all. But you can't get everything you want... Dust reduction. That's something you just don't notice, until you compare the work you do to clean the sensor of other cameras... Excellent camera!
