Testing Out the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II

November 17, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

These next few days I'll be testing out the OM-D E-M1 Mark II that Olympus was kind enough to lend me.

I've used the E-M1 original and E-M5 Mark II along with M. Zuiko ED 7-14mm f/2.8 PRO, M. Zuiko ED 12-40mm f/2.8 and M. Zuiko ED 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO in Hawaii, Europe, some family trips and a handful of non-sporting events like Kings Press Conference, Cal Alumni Career Networking, CSUEB Swimming,  <-- just for you to scope out what the OLDER versions are capable of

While admittedly a mirrorless fangirl, the previous offering couldn't quite cut it for sports, at least not as a professional working on deadline and needing to get "the" image every time. The low light wasn't as capable (a drawback of many a mirrorless) focusing wasn't fast enough, and mostly it just wasn't the canon gear that I know so well and have loved for so long.

When the new E-M1 Mark II came out, I was anxious to test it. Met up with tech rep Ray Acevedo and tested it at the Berkeley dog park. Which did enough to convince me that I needed to give mirrorless another shot at sports.

Ultimately asking, is this a great mirrorless camera, or is a great camera, period.

Any questions you have? Any scenarios you want me to try?
