I don’t want to be the bearer of bad news but once again Olympus has released a broken camera — the E-M5 II. I discovered from my own testing that the sensor has the same long exposure noise issue that made me return the flagship E-M1. Don’t Olympus read the internet? Do they even listen to their customers?
Looks like the original OMD E-M5 is still the m43 camera to beat if you are into landscape photography. And with that I have canceled my order for the 25mm f/1.8 lens. I can’t see myself investing in Olympus equipment anymore if they keep on releasing broken cameras.
