I normally skip a generation or more between cameras.Honestly, you've already got a modern high-end body. You're not going to be part of the target market for a new iterative mid-range body.
. . .
It's totally fine to sit out a generation or two in the camera buying cycle.
My GX7 is 6 years old. I'll replace it when there's a product with the right qualities at the right price for me. Your E-M1 II could easily go 6 years without replacement.
I'm not in a photo business where I NEED the latest gear, nor am I rolling in cash to be able to buy each generation of cameras.
In fact I might still be using my 6MP Nikon D70 (from 2004) if it had not died. For me, it only had only ONE failing, a relatively LOW high ISO limit of 1600. Other than that, I was perfectly happy with it, for my personal shooting.
I have the EM1-mk1 and was/am 95% satisfied with it. The only reasons I got mk2 were:
- #1. Olympus trade up discount, brought the price down close enough that even though expensive, I could afford it.
- Much better EVF, for fast moving sports.
- Larger capacity battery, so I do not have to carry 6 batteries to get me through a full day of shooting, with the 12-100. And the subsequent charging of those 6 batteries at the end of the day.
