    Just wondering what mic you all are using for your E-M5 MK II?

    It will depend on your application.

    For concerts and live events where I want to grab ambient sounds or have a need for the audio to be recorded directionally, I have a Rode VideoMic. it is mono, but for the price and the amount of time it runs on a 9V battery it is pretty good option for a shotgun mic.

    For doing interviews and covering speeches, I love the Sennheiser AVX Mic setup. It pretty much was made for crews with minimal staff and less time to dial in the audio. It is expensive, but it sounds phenomenal and it dead easy to use.

    VideoMicPro here as well or via a zoom recorder. VideoMicPro fits nicely in the front pocket of my Hadley Small along with an extra 9v battery.
