How is the New Olympus E-M10 Mark II Better?

Olympus has packed a lot of technology into its smallest OM-D. But what's improved over its award-winning predecessor? Let's take a look.


  • Upgraded image stabilization: 3-axis to 5-axis, 4 EV compared to 3.5 EV (the E-M5 Mark II has 5 EV steps).
  • Added electronic shutter to complement the mechanical shutter.
  • 8.5 fps sequencial shooting compared to 8 fps.
  • Upgraded EVF to 2,360K dots with OLED compared to 1,440K dots in previous model.
  • Full HD upgrade to 60P/50P/30P/25P/24P from straight 30P.
  • Two new Art Filters bringing the total to 14.
  • New AF Targeting Pad.
  • Improved time lapse movie mode to output to 4K, compared to HD previously.
  • Added Keystone Compensation like on the E-M1 and E-M5 Mark II

This Micro Four Thirds camera looks like a great value at $649. You can hear more about this robust entry into the mirrorless market by listening to this week's TDS podcast.
