The entire lineup of current OM-D cameras is a masterpiece combination of high IQ, advanced features, compactness, affordability, and lens selection and quality. The only point I would make about the EM10II body is that people with truly large hands could find it difficult to handle it (it fits beautifully in my medium size male hands). Olympus has found the way to further improve the ergonomics of the EM10 re-positioning some controls and beefing up the two dials. The 16Mp sensor is tried and true. If you doubt that 16Mp are enough, consider that you can make high quality prints up to 24x36" at low ISO and up to 13x19" up to ISO3200. The camera has a larger, top of the line OLED EVF which allows you to do most of your shooting without taking your eye off it. It can adapt to the camera exposure and show you how your picture will look like. I like to expose with the displayed histogram but I know of pros who just work with how the scene looks in the EVF. Whenever you need it, the LCD is clear and sharp and, since I regularly shoot above my head and low on the ground, its tilting comes particularly handy. It is touch screen and the Super Control Panel works like a charm. Single AF is very fast. Continuous AF works much better if you shoot at low sequence speed (L = 4fps). Image stabilization is now the state-of-the-art Olympus 5 axes system. There is plenty of direct external controls between dials, buttons and the 4-way controller, much closer to the ones offered by a pro DSLR than an intro ILC. It pays to figure out what functions are paramount to your photography and set the direct controls up accordingly.
The EM10II feature set merits a discussion all by itself. You can put the camera in AUTO and shoot it like an RPG to kill a mosquito. If you get the camera because you are serious about your photography, you are going to set it up the way you want it to work. This means that, with its awesome array of (useful) features, you will have to read the (online) manual from cover to cover, take notes relevant to your photography and carry them in your bag when you go out shooting, and probably spend time on the web searching for additional useful hints on the camera's behavior and capabilities (yes, it's hard to believe in its price range but it explains why so many pro reviewers are madly in love with it). It is the EM10II ability to save four custom sets of favorite settings that is going to keep you afloat in this sea of features. You experiment with the camera and when you are happy with the settings, immediately save the custom set (you can easily recall it if anything "mysterious" happens to the behavior of the camera). If you are not a pro, very probably the camera can do much more that you can. Exploring its features would give you the opportunity to get inspired, experiment and improve your technique. Among all the goodies, focus stacking, Live Time and Live Comp would certainly blow your mind (photographing Xmas lights comes to mind at this time of the year). Video has been further improved but it's not my cup of tea.
Wrapping things up, this is another outstanding OM-D camera packing an almost pro-level feature set in a lovely body for a very convenient price, supported by a great selection of high quality lenses. The robust choice of body upgrades would let you grow within this remarkable system. In my opinion, it's worth spending the currently additional $100 to get the OM10II instead of the OM10. I am attaching a pic of the my EM10II and Pentax K5 with equivalent pro lenses to give you an idea of the compactness of the Olympus. The K5 has a record small size APS-C body.
12/17/15 - Hi, I am adding some pics to support the review. The 1st is the EM10II with the Oly 9-18mm (18-36mm eq) f/4-5.6 on the left, the Pana 35-100mm (70-200mm eq) f/4-5.6 on the camera and the Pana 12-32mm (24-64mm eq) f/3.5-5.6) on the right. While not being pro lenses, they are all quite good. They are so small that you can hold any 2 of them in your hand when changing lenses. Given that the OM-D bodies are so small, I prefer to work with 2 bodies with a short and a medium zoom on them permanently (no danger of dropping them or getting dirt inside the camera while changing lenses) giving me a zoom range covering 99% of my photography. The 2nd pic is a run-of-the-mill cool sunset in my town and the 3rd one is a closeup of a piece of jewelry knit by my wife (Oly 60mm macro lens). A final comment: many reputable on-line reviewers are truly enthusiastic about this camera. My experience in using it is one of the very best I had in 50 years working with all kinds of equipment, often much more expensive. At this point in my photographic life I want gear that works with me to translate my vision into compelling, high quality prints. The EM10II is right there, immensely satisfying in its competence and ergonomics.
12/30/15 - Happy new year! Yesterday, I picked up my wife after work in Manhattan and fought our way to the main Xmas exhibits in midtown. I had the Oly 9-18mm lens on the EM10II with the minuscule Pana 12-32mm and 35-100mm lenses in my small and excellent sling bag. Working free-hand with the camera and the 18-36mm lens often over my head with the tilted LCD (f/5.6, ISO 1600, +- 1 stop bracketing) was a real joy. I typically convert the EM10II Raw files with the DNG converter and process in Photoshop CS6 but at this high ISO I prefer to start with the superior noise reduction and distortion compensation of DxO OpticsPro. The ISO1600 files come out smooth as silk and let me print some very respectable size enlargements. See pics 5, 6 and 7 (Times Sq., Rockefeller Ctr and New Rochelle Harbor)
Pros (for me):
1. Significantly Lighter, significantly smaller, Kit lenses in the bundle are much smaller, 37mm and 58mm filter size. After working with DSLR lenses, these lenses look like toy lenses and can fit a Jeans pocket easily.
2. Quick learning curve on the user interface. I often use exposure bracketing, High Shutter speed etc. to eventually stack the pictures in Photoshop. Coming from Canon DSLR UI with no time to learn this camera, it was super-easy to work with these 'advanced' features on this camera straightaway on the trip.
4. Very good speed and performance with high shutter speed. After 7-8 pictures, the camera will slow down for half a second, before it resumes another burst of 7-8 pictures. That was tad slower than 70D, but didn't make a huge difference.
5. I used this camera with 67mm B&W 10-stop Filter on 40-150mm lens + 58-67mm step up ring. Very convenient to use, and it worked very well. The good thing compared to my Canon 70-D set up is that this camera can focus through the 10 stop filter, so I don't need to remove the filter, focus and then reattach the filter which isn't the most convenient thing to do with 70-D.
6. It comes with horizontal and vertical level gauge and that is very useful to use to get pictures composed correctly. I used this feature with many complex shots like Tokyo Tower in Japan and it was very useful feature.
7. The light metering on the camera is informative and easy to use while taking pictures with one eye looking through the view finder, much better than Canon 70D.
8. The dial buttons are super fun and easy to use to play with aperture, shutter speed settings on the fly.
9. Many AF points and super-easy to get it focus on a particular thing in a frame, better than my DSLR.
1. The camera base ISO is 200, though it does come with LOW ISO setting, which I didn't use. I wish it had come with 50 or 100 as base ISO. I was using the camera in very bright conditions all the time and a lower ISO option would have been good.
2. Low light: Honestly I didn't get to use the camera much in low light, because of the environment I was in, but the noise at ISO settings higher than 1600 was too high for my taste. Looking at how much headroom I had, with the "shutter speed, ISO and aperture triangle", I didn't get a great vibe about the performance in low light conditions. A f/2.8 or f/1.8 lens would help in those situations.
3. Small camera, small batteries, so batteries would not last more than 300-340 shots. Kind of expected. But with smaller batteries, I had 3 batteries on the trip with me and that helped. On my typical trip day, I can get through 1 day with 1 battery on Canon 70D, but with this camera, I would need 1.5-2 battery charges.
All in all a great camera. I won't sell my DSLR to keep this, but this would be a complementary camera for places / occasions where I don't want to carry my DSLR bag.
