I've read Robin Wong's and Matthieu Gasquet's reviews, watched the CameraStore's video and even sat through Damian McGillicuddy's "unboxing" vid (enbedded below - but watch it only if you've got insomnia or wish to lose 17mins of your life needlessly) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fzx_IKOyzY4#t=1017 and... I'm still a little underwhelmed. There's certainly lots to like in the E-M5ii. I'm sure it's a great camera. But, if I look at it objectively, this is where I am: - Sensor - It's the same sensor as the E-M5, E-P5 and E-M10. Not a bad sensor, but I really would like to have seen some improvement in the noise - esp at higher ISOs, but even at base ISO it's easy to get into troublesome noise if you go pushing things in PP with the wrong subjects. - Features from other Oly models - Lots of the new features are inherited from other Oly cameras - bigger EVF, WiFi, Live Composite, Keystone, 81 focus points, ... Nice, but not innovative or unique. - Improved features - The IBIS seems improved - full scorecard subject to rigourous testing. But, the existing 5-axis is pretty good you know. Lots of other systems still have no IBIS at all. - Genuine new features - Genuine new features are the articulated screen, electronic shutter and the sensor-shift high res mode. The latter seems like a curiosity rather than a feature that will be used often. - Video features - Looks a good upgrade, but I don't do video. - No difference at all - AF, IQ, Battery life, focus peaking (from other Oly models - i.e. not very good) Net, net - in the crucial areas of delivering something better than I can find in other Oly cameras, I'm left with: - Articulated screen - Electronic shutter The E-M10 will do 99% of what the E-M5ii will do - at half the price. I can pick up used E-M5s in decent condition for a third or a quarter of that price too. I realise that this is an evolutionary model of course, but I guess what I was really hoping for three years after the original E-M5 was a sensor uplift. So, I not going to be rushing out to buy one - but I'm sure I'll own one at some point. Maybe a year or two down the road. If I were buying into the system anew, I'd certainly be looking at it though.
