p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · The Camera Store review of Oly EM-1 MK II


I watched this review and it pointed out some issues/shortcoming with the AF system and video.

Since I am in the market for this camera I want to know if others think these are accurate?

I watched that yesterday and linked it into the main EM-1 MK2 thread. If Jordan found issues in video those are real issues. Those two work at the largest camera store in Calgary AB. They have used every single camera that comes out. Jordan knows a lot about video and is honest in all his reviews.

Stay away from the fanboy paid by Olympus reviews but I would trust what Chris and Jordan have to say.

If you are shooting stills then go for the Olympus....for video I'd be waiting for the GH5...but of course it could have some hidden issues in real life also...still it is the more video driven $2000 M43 camera.

Thanks. I agree with your assessment. And would like to add, if rapid focus isn't a video requirement, the handheld video stabilization indeed works very well. It will be interesting to see how the GH5 compares.

K-H.

I agree with your assessment. Their reviews of the equipment that I have personally used have generally been good, and honest. They may not capture every point but the reviews seem fair.
