Our Verdict

Olympus O-MD E-M1 Mark II Body:

The Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II follows on from the sensation Mark 1 camera launched in 2013, meaning in the fast-moving world of photographic advancement, there was a lot of scope for improving upon their flagship mirrorless.

Olympus haven't failed to impress with the list of key specs on the E-M1 Mark II and are showing that mirrorless cameras can be a more than viable contender for wildlife, sports and other photography where tracking faster subjects has been the mainstay of powerful DSLRs.

With 20.4 MP stills captured in RAW at 18 frames per second and a fast autofocus with a whopping 121 cross-type AF points, this camera can more than handle the pace.

One thing that Mirrorless cameras have tended to beat their chunkier siblings, the DSLR on in the specs war is on-board image stabilisation. The OM-D E-M1 Mark II makes good use of the technology Olympus have become renowned for, and this will make a fine partner for the excellent Olympus M.ZUIKO Digital ED 300MM F/4.0 IS Pro lens which has clearly been made knowing the OM-D E-M1 Mark II was on the way. Handheld telephoto photography just got a whole lot easier!

Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8 Pro Lens:

This lens has a focal length equivalent to 24-80mm on a 35mm full frame DSLR camera, making it a perfect everyday lens for wide-angle to a portrait zoom range. Compatible with the micro four thirds system and boasting a wide f/2.8 maximum aperture, it demonstrates excellent low-light performance and shallow depth of field throughout the focal range, with a beautifully smooth bokeh from the 7-blade aperture diaphragm.

Containing an array of lens elements including aspherical, extra-low dispersion, high-refractive index and HD lens elements, the M.Zuiko 12-40mm Pro lens has an impressive reduction in chromatic aberration and distortion and demonstrates exceptional sharpness, colour reproduction and clarity.

The high-speed imager autofocus from the linear motor drive also delivers fast and smooth autofocus, even when used to shoot fast paced subjects or even video applications. The dust, freeze, and drip-proof design also means it performs well in a variety of weather conditions.

We Love
  • The 18fps continuous mode is groundbreaking in this category of camera
  • Known for their 'tough' range of cameras - dustproof, splashproof and freezeproof protection can be found on the E-M1 Mark II!
  • Combination of technologies for capturing high speed action - IS, FPS capability, fast-AF
  • Impressive new battery life plus the ability to charge in under 2 hours is great!
  • Superb quality, super fast, almost-everything-proof 12-40mm f/2.8 lens
FIRST LOOK: HANDS-ON WITH THE OLYMPUS OM-D E-M1 MARK II
OLYMPUS OM-D E-M1 II DIGITAL MIRRORLESS CAMERA + OLYMPUS M.ZUIKO 12-40MM F/2.8 PRO LENS - FEATURES IN DETAIL

Benchmark AF

The predecessor OM-D flagship has already earned glowing assessments, and now the OM-D E-M1 Mark II elevates OM-D into the very top tier of the pro camera elite with the new ultra-fast Auto Focus system.

Key to this is the completely new on-chip, phase-detection AF system, based on a trinity of precision, tracking performance and real-time controls.

Precision derives from 121 all cross-type AF points and a high-speed algorithm powered by the new TruePic VIII AF processor.

Tracking uses a dedicated moving- subject algorithm to deliver reliable focus for sequential shooting at an amazing 18fps, while single AF delivers ground-breaking 60fps.

Game-changing speed

Several high-speed components combine to deliver effortless sequential shooting on the OM-D E-M1 Mark II. With an EVF that offers a response rate of barely 6 ms and a smooth frame rate of 120 fps, it’s easy to keep up with fast-moving subjects.

In C-AF mode, the OM-D E-M1 Mark II reaches sequential speeds of 18 fps, which rises to 60 fps in S-AF mode, while the new PRO Capture Mode relieves OM-D owners of the shutter lag that afflicts some professional cameras.

With up to 14 frames taken even before the shutter release is fully depressed, it’s virtually impossible not to capture the desired split-second shot, no matter how fast the subject moves.

Unmatched mobility

Ultra-compact, portable design is another key strength of the OM-D E-M1 Mark II. Olympus is the first and only professional camera maker to provide a complete, pro-standard photography system, including lenses, that fits in a carry-on bag suitable for a standard aircraft.

Enhancing this go-anywhere flexibility is the rugged, splashproof, dustproof and freezeproof design. Despite its compact dimensions, the indented shape of the new OM-D makes it easier to grip firmly, especially with a telephoto lens attached.

An optional battery grip with matching controls as on the main body is great for portrait orientation and safe hold on the camera in all positions.

Maximum usability

A number of improvements are designed to make work as straightforward as possible for the busy professional photographer. By popular demand, there are two SD slots with one being UHS-II-compatible.

There are multiple recording settings available for each card, e.g. saving RAW format to one card and JPG format to the other at the same time.

The new battery lasts nearly 40% longer, the charging time of 2 hours is roughly twice as quick as in the predecessor camera, and the battery charge can be displayed on the LCD as a percentage. For more details like overall battery condition, there is a separate status menu available. For high-speed data transfer, the OM-D E-M1 Mark II comes equipped with USB 3.0 Type-C connector.

Elite image quality

The true measure of any professional-grade camera is image quality, and here the new OM-D E-M1 Mark II lays down another marker – for both stills and cinema-standard video footage – that the competition will struggle to match.

Olympus developed the all-new TruePic VIII image processor and 20-Megapixel Live MOS sensor specifically for this camera, and it shows. By any measure, the optical potential is startling.

Thanks to enhanced pixel optics and double quad-core processing, the dynamic range has been significantly improved. The 50-Megapixel High Res Shot goes far beyond the potential of full-frame cameras, with blur as good as eliminated by a combination of the TruePic VIII and a new, enhanced version of Olympus’ celebrated on-sensor 5-axis Image Stabilization.

The 5-axis mechanism which has been re-designed exclusively for OM-D E-M1 Mark II now compensates the equivalent of up to 6.5 steps at a focal length of 100mm (with the Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-100mm 1:4.0 PRO lens).

This revolutionary IS system is now the perfect match for OM-D E-M1 Mark II’s video capabilities in radiant, ultra high-definition 4K at 30fps rate and 102 Mbps bit rate.

Movie enthusiasts will also welcome the addition of the 24p frame rate and a 237 Mbps bit rate to the OM-D repertoire, which means footage can be shown in the authentic widescreen C4K format.

M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-40mm f/2.8 Pro Lens - Constant aperture & superbly built

Heralding a new standard of M.ZUIKO lenses as the first model in the new M.ZUIKO PRO category, the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-40mm 1:2.8 PRO lens is engineered to meet the needs of professional photographers in all respects. When combined with the OLYMPUS OM-D, this large-aperture lens achieves the reputation of an unbelievably fast AF high-performance standard zoom. Its constant, bright aperture value of f2.8 at all focal lengths (equivalent to 24-80mm on a 35mm camera), combined with other sophisticated technologies including an MSC and Manual Focus Clutch mechanism, deliver high-grade image creation for a wide range of photographic styles, regardless of lighting conditions and distance. This lens features a handy push pull focus ring to easily switch between manual and automatic focusing. The compact and lightweight design also has a dustproof and splashproof construction compliant with professional use, expanding shooting capabilities even in the most testing of environments.
