  • My E-M5 II from Henry's was also used by the staff. I know that because I found the SD card inside with photos of the store when I opened it! How did you manage to get a 30 day no questions asked ...
  • As I said in the post you originally replied to, the 3.5 second startup time from quick sleep is measured with the 1.1 firmware update applied. I'm not talking about the delay before an image is ...
  • Nitpicking the wording I used to describe the difference between quick sleep and sleep doesn't really add anything to the discussion. No, it's not exactly the same as shutting down the camera since ...
  • Yes, but it was my impression the timing was the same before the update, though other E-M5 II owners could double check. Quick sleep mode appears to completely power off the camera rather than ...
  • I suppose the question is more why quick sleep mode only functions under that specific shooting setup (automatic EVF switching + screen set to display shooting menu), and whether most people ...
  • I was very frustrated by one particular out of the box behaviour with my E-M5 II when automatic EVF switching is enabled. With the screen set to show the shooting menu rather than live view when ...
  • I guess I need to go try one in a store to be sure. It took me a while to even figure out it was a button, because it's a different shape from the rest of them and there's no positive click ...
  • I've been trying this out since it's my preferred focus configuration. The placement of the fn1 button is not ideal if you shoot left eyed. I'd like to know if the fn1 button is meant to have a ...
  • I did have an opportunity to handle the E-M10 and E-M5 II in person, though unfortunately in front of a salesperson. They both felt great, with similar build quality. The E-M5 II is clearly ...

  • I spent some time trying them out today, though I wish I'd skimmed the manuals beforehand since I was fumbling just to turn them on and off. The E-M5 II is noticeably heavier than the E-M10 and I ...
  • Another nice summary. I just had a good play with both cameras in a local store. The small difference in weight is obvious when you pick them up, and the E-M5 II feels more "solid" and bigger ...
  • It sounds like we have similar motivations for wanting this type of camera. I have spent a lot of time on camerasize.com for sure! http://camerasize.com/compare/#312,594 Really no comparison there, ...
  • Thanks. The other features I like are the separate battery/SD card door and the ability to use the camera tethered to a laptop, though the wifi app seems pretty slick compared to what Canon gives ...
  • Created discussions E-M10 vs. E-M5 II
    I'm a Canon shooter with a 5D mark III and fairly extensive selection of large pro zooms and some primes. To be blunt, I don't use most of it very often because of the size and weight. I recently ...
