  1. m.a.g

    Photography is my hobby for about 20 years or so. I moved from DSLR to mirrorless about 3 years ago, when mirrorless became on par or better than DSLR. I currently own Sony A7R3, Canon EOS R5, and Panasonic G9 + a lot of lenses.
    I purchased this Olympus camera with Olympus 300mm f4 PRO lens as I needed light(er than FF) camera for wildlife photography to be used whenever I don’t want / can’t carry my full frame Canon plus huge 500mm f4 lens, and I decided to go with Olympus body to have dual stabilization with Olympus lens.

    So whole thing about mirrorless is that you need good EVF enjoy the camera. For more than 5 years all major brands are using high resolution OLED EVF. Except Olympus, I guess., which I learned the hard way. This is their top, most recent model, and when I got it, I felt like it was 2015 all over again and I was using Sony Nex 6. I can’t believe Olympus put this crappy, outdated, cheap low-res LCD based EVF in their flagship camera. Even 3 years old (and half the price) Panasonic G9 has OLED and double the resolution. Not to mention other cameras you can buy for this money.

    So, to sum it up, the thing about the mirrorless is that you need decent EVF to use the camera. Good EVF does not make a camera good, but bad EVF can ruin even the best camera. And this is the case here. This really could be great camera for everyone who need to use light equipment (compared to FF of course), but with old EVF with hardly any contrast, it’s like buying great sport car and paint the windshield black. I’ve returned it with huge regret that such a nice idea for good camera was ruined by Olympus for no good reason – except greed maybe.

    I am a semi-professional photographer and have been photographing for over 40 years. I have used Hasselblad, Canon and Olympus (M1 M2) equipment. The OMD M1X is by far the best camera that I have ever used. I was “turned-off” by the initial $3000.00 price tag but when I saw it on Amazon for $1749.00, I purchased it without any hesitation. I have absolutely no regrets – 🙂

    I’m a wildlife photographer and have upgraded from the em1 mark II for everyday outings, but I still use my second mark II for backup and usually a shorter lens. To answer one comment in a very positive review, I never open the battery tray. It’s a delight to be able to charge it by plugging in the same cable I use for my android phone! In an hour or so it’s recharged. Lovely! ND simulation is SO MUCH FUN! Hand-held hi res is also a boon. I can now shoot in the rain or spray without fear. I love this cam! My other favorite feature is Pro Capture, which is also available on the em1 mark ii. All told, the output from this camera is spectacular!

    Olympus makes some of the best cameras in the industry, they really do. I’ve used most of the cameras and they’re great. Autofocus, speed, colors, look and feel, it’s all there. My current camera is The EM1 Mark II which is fantastic. You’re probably wondering why 2 stars on this camera. Well first off the image quality is identical to the EM1 Mark II. Zero progress has been made since 2016 on the sensor which is shocking to see the same sensor in the $3,000 camera. I don’t understand why they didn’t upgrade the sensor, at least to give it better High ISO performance. Maybe Sony didn’t have a new sensor for them so they got stuck using the same one from 2016. Secondly the camera has a “small” EVF for its price range. At $3,000 I expect a huge bright EVF. Sadly that’s not the case. It’s not bad, but it’s the worst in its price class for sure. It’s almost identical to the the EM1 Mark II. The camera is larger and heavier which defeats the purpose of micro four thirds. If someone wants a grip they can buy it for the EM1 mark II. Yes the Autofocus is excellent but so is the EM1 Mark II. It looks like Olympus just took the EM1 Mark II, doubled the CPU’s added a permanent grip that holds 2 batteries and doubled the price. It’s probably the least innovated camera Olympus has released, and a huge disappointment. The camera shouldn’t cost more than $2,200. At $3,000 it’s way overpriced and becomes extremely niche. I hope the next camera Olympus releases is a real upgrade to previous models and not a let’s throw everything we have in the lab into a camera idea. They most certainly won’t sell very many of these cameras, and it will be a commercial failure.

    Even though mavens claim there is no advantage to buying this over the last omd, when they reduced the price by 1/3 to $2000 I couldn’t resist even though I have nearly every omd they made. Without going into detail this camera is used for commercial listings and I’ve had problems with matching color. I shoot in RAW and the live view finder seems to catch reality color. This necessitates very little if any color correction with Lightroom. And the exposure “click” sounds like a
    Swiss mechanism. I’ve yet to see what this camera can do but it seems to be very user friendly.
