    Hey, new adopter of the EM5 MK II traded in my EM5 to get it...Anyhow I noticed there's a problem with the battery level indicator. I'm getting mixed messages. One second it's telling me that the battery is low. Then after switching it off then on, it indicates that the battery is full. I tried searching the forum here for this issue and couldn't find it so I apologize if this is a repost. I'm hoping that my other friendly EM5 MK II users might chime in and help me solve this. Thanks.

    The battery indicator is not 100% accurate, even with official Olympus battery. I always carry spare battery in my camera bag. 3rd party ones are fairly cheap, about 10 bucks each. I recommend Wasabi brand battery as they have a proven track record.

    I configure the battery warning level to +2.
