Review summary from DPReview

DPReview Silver Award
March 2015
The E-M5 II is probably the stand-out Micro Four Thirds camera in a market with some very good rivals. This shifts more of the emphasis of its appeal and appropriateness to the strength of the Micro Four Thirds system as a whole: if it offers the lenses and size/price/image quality balance that's right for you, then the E-M5 II should be top of your list.

Personal takes

Samuel Spencer Samuel Spencer DPReview
It's unbelievable how many features Olympus crammed in to this camera. It's incredibly versatile, and its size and weight means it should never be what limits a photographer from going great lengths to get the shot.
Barney Britton Barney Britton DPReview
The OM-D E-M5 II is a very capable little camera, which punches above its weight in terms of features and compares well against a lot of APS-C format competitors. Olympus has loaded the camera with physical control points and custom options which can be off-putting but if you're prepared to spend some time figuring the camera out, it can deliver great results.
Dan Bracaglia Dan Bracaglia DPReview
The E-M5 II nicely compliments anyone's shooting style thanks to ample customisable buttons. 5-axis image stabilisation is especially helpful during handheld video capture.

Reasons to buy

  • 5-axis image stabilisation: The E-M5 II can compensate for camera shake in every possible direction for both stills and movies.
  • High resolution mode: Using its sensor-shift IS system the E-M5 II can create 40MP still images, perfect for landscape and portrait photography.
  • Impressive video specs: The camera records 1080/60p with focus peaking, clean HDMI output, and an external mic.
  • Fully articulating LCD: The 3"" touchscreen LCD flips out to the side and rotates a total of 270 degrees.
  • Impressive autofocus: The E-M5 II adds commendable continuous focus tracking to its super-fast autofocus capabilities

Things to consider

  • A bit intimidating: While the E-M5 II is highly customisable, all of the buttons and switches may overwhelm new users.
  • Video quality: While the specifications are good, the video isn't as clean or detailed as we'd like.
  • Stuck at 16MP: Whereas most of its competitors offer up to 24MP, the E-M5 II still uses a 16MP sensor.

Style: Body OnlyColour: silver
As a devoted Panasonic owner, I really should have been looking at a G7 or GH4 to replace my G6, but in truth, the OM-D E-M5ii offers features I can't get from Panasonic for stills photography.

Reasons to buy (in order of importance to me):
1) The image stabilisation is so good it's almost unreal in its ability to return stabilised images. Absolutely mad-bonkers good. Now, sharp hand-held shots at 1/15th of a second are no big deal, even with a 30mm (60mm SLR equivalent) lens. Sharp longer exposures are even possible, with a combination of care and luck. My slowest hit & miss speed being about 1/6th of a second, where I'm probably sharp around 30%-50% of the time at that speed with a 30mm lens. There's a funky mechanical & digital-cropping combo you can use for video, which allows you to walk and even run while the camera does a remarkable job of sorting out the shaking. Nobody does it better.
2) Weather-proofing. The camera is rated as resistant to dust, wet and cold, so with a weather-proofed lens, there's no need to panic about getting your pride and joy wet.
3) Build quality. It's beautifully made from quality materials and is a real pleasure to use. It's very well made and coming from my somewhat plasticky (though much loved) Panasonic G6, the gulf in build quality between the two is apparent.
4) No anti-alias filter, so pictures are extra sharp when pixel-peeping. This is something I thought was going to be a big deal for me, and it is nice, but it's less of a boon than I thought it might be. That said, it's still a plus for this camera to me.
5) Side-positioned memory card slot. No faffing around when you've got it locked onto a tripod.

Style: 12-50 Lens KitColour: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I consider myself a lapsed enthusiastic amateur, having started using SLRs 30 years ago, then going compact due to bulk, then back to digital SLRs and then high level compacts again. But I've been unsatisfied again and was looking to get back into SLRs when I had the chance to try out this Micro Four Thirds (MFT) camera. My review will be biased towards the casual enthusiastic amateur, but all the expert reviews of this camera that I've read have been very positive and make me very pleased to now own this.

The first thing you notice is the size. The body is about the size of a prosumer compact, but of course there's the lens too. The overall package is slightly smaller than a typical SLR, and with the standard 12-50mm lens I fit this into a Lowerpro AW 45 case Lowepro Toploader Zoom 45 AW II Camera Bag - Black. I've been using this case clipped on to a waistpack belt for hiking and also bought a standard equipment belt as an option Dwcx Nylon Adjustable Camera Waist Photography Belt For Lens Bag Case Holder Bottle buckle And Accessories Bag Pack Strap. The overall weight is acceptable and that makes access easy, without needing a strap around your neck.

The camera doesn't come with detailed instructions, just a quick start guide. The most basic operations are relatively intuitive, but as soon as you want to change anything you really need the full guide. I found that on the American Olympus site, but it may be on the UK one now.

Style: 12-40 f2.8 Pro Lens KitColour: Black Verified Purchase
Just bought OM-D E M5 Mark 2 and was worried about the menu after reading reviews but to be honest it doesn't seem all that bad. It feels much better built than the Panasonic G7 and although the grip is much smaller it still fits in my hand well. Have done some test shots against the G7 and actually little difference between them for stills but I wanted the weather sealing and IBIS of the M5. The 12-40mm Pro lens is absolutely stunning but seems almost too big for the M5 but then again its a joy to use with great results.

Have read complaints that the two control wheels can be moved easily when taking it in and out of bag but can't understand the problem as when the cameras powered off no settings are effected by the wheels turning, the control wheels on my G7 are just as easy to turn.

What I was surprised about is although I bought direct from Amazon this is not a UK model the Box had been opened and a UK power lead put in along with the original EU power lead.

Had originally given this 5 stars but after 1 month the EVF has developed a fault white areas have appeared in the EVF they do not appear on the rear screen or on the saved image but still not happy. Checked on DPreview and this seems to affect some copies of the E-M5 II and some copies of the E-M 1 suffered from this as well. The cause seems to be when the following happens
1) The DIOPTER is set high on the "+" setting providing magnification to the view finder image.
2) Sunlight entering the view finder from the rear of the camera.
It appears, that either a "film" or some glue utilized within the EVF reacts to the magnified sunlight entering the EVF from the rear.
