The Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mk II is the company’s new flagship mirrorless model, sitting above the PENs and is the latest addition to the range. Featuring a newly developed 20.4-MP Live MOS sensor and an impressively powerful TruePic VIII processor, the new model is capable of burst rates of up to 60 fps with AF-S (using the optional electronic shutter mode), and up to 18 fps with AF-C.
Announced at the IFA 2015 in Berlin, this new Micro-Four-Thirds Panasonic LUMIX G 25mm F1.7 ASPH lens is a welcome addition to Panasonic’s existing range. Read on to find out how well this new model performs.
This camera is the follow-up to the EM-10 from 2014 and features a similar 16-Mpix Live MOS sensor, but gains a similar (but not identical) 5-axis body stabilization system that helped make the upper-level OM-D models so popular. Read on to find out how well the sensor for this model performs.
Launched in July 2015, the $1,198 GX8 is Panasonic’s latest Micro-Four-Thirds mirrorless hybrid camera. Announced as an update to its predecessor, the GX7, the GX8 becomes the highest-resolution Micro-Four-Thirds offering in the Panasonic lineup, featuring a 20Mp Live MOS sensor.
Olympus’s latest mirrorless hybrid offering, the OM-D E-M5 Mark II, is an updated version of their original and hugely successful E-M5. Boasting a new weather-resistant shell and improvements to its handling and performance capabilities, the latest model sticks with the same resolution 16Mp four-thirds sensor as its predecessor. With the lab tests just in, let’s see how the Sensor Scores for the new OM-D E-M5 Mark II stack up against the competition.
Olympus has unveiled an updated Mark II version of their hugely popular OM-D E-M5 mirrorless hybrid camera.Continuing to feature a 16Mp Micro-Four-Thirds sensor, the new Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II offers enhanced image stabilization, a new 40Mp high-resolution image stitching mode, and the refined build quality of its predecessor — but with enhanced handling capabilities.
The PEN E-PL7 is the latest iteration in the Lite series, replacing the previous EPL5/6 models with a more traditional body, the addition of a control dial, and reverting to a 3:2 aspect ratio LCD touchscreen. Read on to see how well this new model performs.
The new Panasonic GM5 sits alongside the existing GM1 as Panasonic’s ultra compact hybrid camera and features a 16Mp FourThirds CMOS sensor. The introduction of the GM5 offers consumers a super small hybrid with the addition of a built-in electronic viewfinder (EVF) and hotshoe, which were absent on the GM1. With price tags of $898 for the GM5 and $747 for the GM1, is the latest model worth the extra money? Let’s take a look at the sensor scores to find out.
I have a big concern about the E-M1's sensor performance. Here is an issue that only very few M43 folks have addressed so far, and missed by lots of E-M1 reviewers.
Why does E-M1 performs worse than E-M5 in low light situations and with longer exposures?
1. Is it a common problem with all E-M1 units or found only in first October-November shipments? 2. Can we expect the issue to be fixed or it's here forever because of the way E-M1 has been engineered to implement a new Dual-Fast AF sensor with AA filter removed?
Olympus representatives didn't give my any reasonable answers yet.
I am wondering if DXOMark, known for its high-grade testings, can cast any light here.
