    Es el producto tal y como decía la descripción, la obtuve a buen precio respecto a otros provedores. Buena cámara aún la estoy probando. La durabilidad de la batería está por debajo de mis expectativas. Sin embargo, llevo pocas semanas de uso y no la he configurado al 100%. Pude registrar el producto y actualizar el firmware sin problemas. Tenia entendido que lo menús de configuración no eran tan sencillos, pero siguiendo el manual digital (el cual hay que descargar en la pagina de olympus, pues el impreso que viene con la cámara es un resumen o una guía rápida) y otros tutoriales pude moverme por los menús con más facilidad. Lo lógico es tener un lente para micro 4/3, no siempre se piensa esto y me incluyo.

    Great resolution, fast/silent focus and solid build quality. WiFi connectivity and the free Olympus OI Share app make posting photos from the camera to social media possible in a minute or two. The artistic effects are appreciated, especially the film grain, contrast heavy B&W and Vintage III effects. Once I add a stereo mic or wireless receiver, I imagine I’ll have the screen out already and properly angled to allow the cable to connect…Other than that, I love how the camera handles. Touchscreen focusing will be useful. Still getting use to dial locations; I was spoiled by my A700 for years. Note, this includes the tiniest flash ever (but surprisingly decent – FL-LM3), which articulates up and down, and sideways for vertical shots if you need to bounce off the ceiling (it runs off the camera’s power source). Still, an upgrade to the FL-600R or FL-900R is a must.
    • For journalists, I recommend buying the 12-100mm f4 as your base if you want to save space and $$$. The manual focus option is smooth and quiet.
    • Buy at least one extra battery.

    This is a preface that I hope will be a small blemish in what will be a fantastic review…

    Watch a few YouTube videos of unboxings before you open you Olympus OM-D E-M1 MKII. I had mine about five minutes before opting to send it back. All seemed fine when I opened the shipping box. Camera box seemed was fine. Little rivers of anticipation ran down my inseam as I cracked the main container open. Lifting the lid up and immediately, there like a turd in the proverbial punch bowl, was an empty plastic bag, tape still on one end. Stood out like a giant soiled prophylactic. Warning signs went off. Then, digging deeper, the box the instruction manual comes in had been bent in half. The bag that the camera was wrapped in was as wrinkled as a T-shirt on the floor of a college dorm room. There was no protective sticky plastic on the body or LCD screen. The cables had no wire tires and had obviously been fiddled with. The flash had no protecting plastic and was already in its felt bag. Again I direct you to unboxing videos. But, the pièce de résistance: NO BATTERY!

    So I am returning this one and have ordered another. Sordid details following…

    I’m a hobbyist. I’ve had an Olympus EM 5 Mark 2 for about 3 years, using it for travel and to take photography classes. I love it! I also have a number of Olympus lenses, both Primes and Zooms. You could say I’m committed to the system. I upgraded to the EM 1 about a month ago for a number of reasons, including higher megapixel count, faster burst speed, and the larger size of the body to better match the 40-150 Pro Zoom.

    So far, I’m amazed. This camera is a pleasure to use. It gives me the benefit of a compact system that produces all the quality I need. Prints in the sizes I want look great. I usually make 12×18 prints. I wouldn’t be afraid to go larger. Keep in mind that a matted, framed print this size ends up being around 20×26. That takes up a lot of wall space. Digital viewing is also wonderful.

    Right now the EM 1 is also a great bargain. When 1st introduced, they were $1999. I paid $1199 on Amazon. I assume a Mark 3 may be right around the corner. I may get one. About 4 years from now. Maybe! I’m sure I’ll get some more lenses. I think camera technology for stills has gone about as far as it can. If you have been afraid to try MFT, don’t be. Buy one and go have fun, without straining your back.

    I would like to thank some YouTube channels for their informative MFT videos, including Gordon Laing, Red35, David Thorpe, Robin Wong, Joe Edelman, Peter Forsgard, Sulantoblog, Rob Trek, James Popsys, Derek Forss, D Griff Gallery, Jamie Windsor and e6vlogs.

    Me tomó mucho tiempo decidirme para comprar esta cámara por el hecho de ser micro 4/3, pero al empezarla a usar me he dado cuenta que es una maravilla para mi, ligera, resistente y con prestaciones pro.

    I use the E-M1 mostly for macro work — specifically, I shoot insects, amphibians such as salamanders and frogs, small reptiles (snakes and lizards mostly) and slime molds or fungus (often very tiny) as a hobby. Sometimes I use extension tubes or a Raynox. I upgraded from the E-M5 (which I loved and kept as my back up). I have now used both cameras extensively (including in high humidity rain forests) and they have been put through their paces. Here’s what I like the most about the E-M1: 1. The battery life is excellent. 2. The “out of the camera” files are extraordinary. For my needs, they need very little post processing. 3. It is substantially larger than the E-M5 but still way smaller and lighter than a DSLR. In fact, I routinely shoot one handed which is HUGE for me since I have a free hand to move twigs or leaves out of the way and steady myself (take a look at my photos and you’ll see what I mean. I only shoot in the field). I also hike for hours carrying this camera in one hand using a wrist lanyard for safety and my hand does not get tired — I just hook the tips of my fingers under the grip. 4. I don’t use the flippy screen much but, when I do, it is responsive and easy to use and the magnification (for focus) is excellent. 5. Once you find it in the (awful) menu you can set up “back button” focus and, for my hand size, the button is positioned really well. 6. The ergonomics are pretty good. For example, while lying on my belly, steading a leaf with one hand, I can focus, shoot, turn on focus peaking, use flash compensation and more with my other hand. 7. The files that are produced do not need a lot of tweaking because the camera does an amazing job of getting the white balance right. 8. I LOVE the 1:1 wheel which allows me to rest the lens to the shortest working distance. Here’s what I dislike: The complicated Olympus menu system creates a steep learning curve. The menu system is consistently panned by users and has been the topic of derision for years — and it is not consistent between models. That said, I can usually find most of what I need fairly quickly now I’ve shot with it four or five times a week for a year. I posted some photos that are typical of what I get when I use this camera with the M. Zuiko 60mm lens. These likely have some minor tweaks in Lightroom — but those will truly be minimal. I have used this camera with the Olympus 12-40 and it scored high points there too. If you want to see insect, amphibians and reptile macro shots I post to IG under jeremy.nature.photos. One final point: Keep in mind that my review is all about the relatively narrow field in which I work. As a macro camera this thing is magic. Coupled with the 60mm it has dramatically cut down the number of shots I make in order to get a “keeper”. I’d still use my full frame rig for landscape and birds. I rented an Oly 200mm and shot for a few days in Florida and, while everything worked fine, the m43 format/lens combination does not allow me to create the kind of image I like. I hope this is useful!

    Great camera to buy while you still can get one, due to being replaced by the mark3. I see many reviews comparing to the new EM5mk3 and my advice would be to check out the differences and think about if you really need them.
    I have the EM5mk3 and the EM1mk2 is better made, battery life alone is at least 3 times longer. Long heavy lenses are a treat with this camera due to the grip fitting your hand. The EM5/3 you will have buy a grip anyhow if you going get a lens like the 12-100 pro and even then its front heavy and cant be tri pod mounted unless you wont to break the plastic base.

    Rarely does rain not fall when I am shooting, so I am sensitive to weather sealing and robustness of equipment. This device certainly met expectations in those terms, but was not to my taste when it came to colour reproduction. I found the tints off – I know each brand has its strengths, but for me, this unit was too muted in its reproduction of yellows and magentas. Too bad. Otherwise a fine image-collecting friend!

    Quick to focus, stunning image quality, every bell and whistle imaginable. I especially like the live bulb mode. Olympus is the only brand that lets you watch your long-exposure pictures develop, so you can close the shutter when everything looks perfect. You do need the best lenses to really make this camera shine. The body is small and light, and made photography fun again for me. I use my Olympus cameras both casually and professionally.
