  1. Hey, I have been using an Olympus OM20 Film camera for the past 15 years and have been very happy with it.
    I have a love for the older OM Cameras and don't know if I should upgrade to an OMD.
    There is a part of me hoping that Olympus will come up with a digital data back like the kind on the Hasselblad V cameras.
    What is your view on this? do you think it is worth my wile holding out to see if or if I should just go and get a OMD?
    This has been on my mind for the past 10 years and I can't make up my mind about this.
    I love the look of the EM 5MII but love my old OM20 even more!
    All the best Jonathan Fay a.k.a dragontone

    P.S hear is a link to a review I made of my old OM film camera…


  2. Hate to say it, but obviously the reviewer has not dug deep into some of the settings that would eliminate the small negatives he points out. Some things, like the grip.. are a matter of perspective. Most of the other stuff can be dealt with by getting away from the factory defaults and fully exploring what this camera can do.

  3. I do love the Olympus battery grip. It makes holding it way more comfortable.

  4. What kind of mic are you using?

  5. Gee, what difference two months and actual experience with the Olympus can make to your camera review. Your Mar 12, 2015 _ Olympus OM-D E-M1 compared to Sony a6000 was a loop-side effort. You had practical, direct experience with the Sony and none with the Olympus but yet you compared them anyway. There is no substitute for experience even if your a professional like yourself.
    You do very good reviews (when talking from experience) and I enjoy them and learn from them. I'm a subscriber and continue to look forward to your next video.

    p.s. Sorry you didn't talk about that beautiful 12mm Rokinon lens you kept waving in front of us, but happy to hear your going to do a review that will include the lens soon.

  7. Watch video at 2:51https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNY8LiyPL_k … and you will see how to set your e m5ii so the touch screen works just as good as if you were using a canon 70D touch screen. Nice an smooth and fast response to the touch. It worked great on my OM-D E-M5 II when I did this on my EM 5ii, so your problem is solved.

  8. Great review, you helped make up my mind about buying this camera! Thanks!

  9. can you use the hdr (button) while shooting handheld?

    Thanks for discussing the pros and cons in a way that makes sense without tons of jargon!

    hey Dave

    can I use my old minolta md and Canon fd lenses with the omd em 5ii! with adapters as I am doing with my a6000. As always keep up the good work 😊

  12. Hey there, great review as always! You mentioned you have a stabilizer for your a6000… Which one do you have and would you recommend it? Thank you, and keep up the great work!

    The M5II touchscreen sensitivity issue is a real turn-off for me. I'm looking to move from a Panasonic G6 to either an OM-D E-M5II or an OM-D E-M1 so I'm trying to find a good comparison review. I like the larger size of the M1, but I also like the flip out screen of the M5II. Are there any advantages that the M1 has over the M5II in terms of performance? (The 40MP is nice, but won't be a deal-clincher for me.)

  14. Excellent review!

  15. Great review Thanks

  16. I appreciate the review…though a novice, I found it helpful and look forward to learning more about it's use.

    In the sample video he shows vs the a6000…Check out the dynamic range difference. It's substantial.

    Thanks for the review, I'm interested in this olympus versus the Fuji x1t.

    I shoot my own artwork sometimes to archive it, currently on a nikon D300, but I'm liking the hi-res capability of the olympus and it might just sway me.

    Originally I was thinking of getting a smaller camera to take out and about to chuck in a bag with a sketchbook, something fairly compact… never expected to find something that could take the place of my Nikon; I was going to go full frame eventually but now I might not feel the need to. What's the dynamic range like in those hi-res shots?

    I´m coming back to Olympus after a long time, trying Canon and Nikon. I hope this decission was right.
