p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Olympus E-M1 Mark II question...


I am wanting to purchase the Olympus E-M1 Mark II, along with the Olympus Pro 12-100 lens. My primary use for the camera and lens will be landscapes while hiking. I plan to have the camera mounted on a tripod, using manual focus and ETTR.

My question is does the EVF have enough resolution and contrast to properly manual focus while using the EVF.
In addition, how does the Olympus E-M1 Mark 11 and the Pro 12 -100 lens handle flare, particularly when the sun is low in the horizon. Thanks.

Yeah, you can get up to 14x magnification. Plenty for hitting critical focus.

Flare performance is quite good for such a complicated lens.

Unless you're planning to use Hi-Res mode/, uper long exposures, or time lapses a tripod is fairly redundant with that combination.

Doesn't handle flare that well:
