Olympus E-M5 Mark II Sensor Review and Test Results

DxOMark published their sensor review and test results for the Olympus E-M5 Mark II mirrorless interchangeable lens camera which is currently priced for $1,099.99 at Amazon.

Olympus E-M5II sensor review shows the camera achieved a score of 73 points, ranks in 87th place for all tested sensors in the database and the sensor has the same score as the E-M1 shooter.

According to DxOMark, the E-M5 Mark II has new features but on the sensor side, in terms of the E-M5’s sub-scores for Color, Dynamic Range, and ISO, there are no real stand-out results.

Olympus E-M5 Mark II vs E-M5 Mark I vs E-M1

From DxOMark conclusion:

The improvements to the EVF and LCD screen resolution, alongside more customizable controls, have updated the OM-D E-M5 Mark II to respond to the 2015 hybrid market. What’s more, with its retro styling, weather-resistant construction, and large range of interchangeable lenses, it looks likely to remain a big hit with Olympus enthusiasts. The 5-axis image stabilization system and 40Mp stitching mode will be handy for some shots too, but sticking with the similar, if not same, 16Mp four-thirds sensor from the Mark I means that the latest model doesn’t offer any real improvement to sensor image quality over its predecessor in the DxOMark Sensor Scores.

The Olympus E-M5II is a 16-megapixel mirrorless shooter and offers a built-in 2.36 million dot EVF, Wi-Fi and an articulating 3″ 1.04 million dot touchscreen LCD.
