Olympus E-M5 II Preview – From 16 to 40 megapixels
In February 2012, the first E-M5-system camera Olympus announced. That was quite a turning point, because until that time the ‘Pen’ was the top model, apart from the Olympus SLRs. They were not long afterwards repelled and followed by the E-M1. The new series was published under the name of “OM-D ‘, with a deliberate link to the famous OM analog cameras from the Japanese company. Last year was also the more compact OM-D E-M10 introduced, bringing the total number of OM-D’s now out on three. It was high time to follow the three year old E-M5 and that happened this week.
Olympus OM-D E-M5 II
At first it seems not much to be changed on the E-M5 II. He is still equipped with the same 16-megapixel sensor, a magnesium body that can withstand extreme temperatures and weather conditions and five-axis stabilization in the body. Yet there is more change than you might think at first glance. The body is quite fine-tuned, with better grip, more buttons, better EVF and a lower bulge on top. The new E-M5 is equipped with Wi-Fi, an enhanced video mode, better stability and a method to take pictures with a resolution of 40 megapixels.
