8632Morrison: Do not agree with the 81 Silver ranking based on numerous super favorable reviews (ironically even your own). Virtually everything about the EM-5II is significantly upgraded to class leading and sometimes even industry leading levels. I don't get it. I think DPR readers deserve a justification (beyond just sensor size) for this strangely low rating.

Industry leading 5 stop IBIS
40 MP still life
Improved superfast AF
Excellent viewfinder from EM-1
Upgraded tilt/swivel rear LCD screen
10 fps
Weather sealed
Less expensive
2x2 controls from EM-1
New bounce-able flash
Improved near pro build quality
Unique Live Time and Live Composite
Improved video capabilities
Improved high ISO performance

Of course this is just a list of new, unique, upgraded or industry leading features. The real test is how this camera works in actual use and every reviewer I've read has actually raved about this EM-5II as a camera that is both fun to use and gives excellent results. There have been many favorable reviews, but I found this one to be quite interesting: http://www.stevehuffphoto.com/2015/02/18/the-olympus-om-d-e-m5-mark-ii-review-olympus-continues-to-innovate/

Just looking at the daylight RAW comparison to the Sony RX100 II and forgive me if I'm wrong, but it sure looks like the Canon is the clear equal (or better) and also at high ISOs. Regardless, the G1 XII looks like a good very good camera and shoots quite well (maybe less so in video, but that's not a concern for me) by all I can see. Fully deserving of the Silver it earned.

Dan DeLion: Not terribly impressive results for such a large camera with a very limited lens. If it's your only camera its' limited lens is a hindrance. If it's a portable alternative to your DSLR – you can get the same results with much smaller, more versatile and cheaper cameras. It probably has some advantages at higher ISO's if you can live with its' limitations. This one is destined for the dustbin of history.

You're joking, right? We must be looking at different samples, because to my eyes these look very impressive. Particularly the higher ISO images. There are one or two with what appears to be camera shake, but for the most part this camera gives excellent pro quality images. I can't see how you can not see this. Plus, this camera is NOT large for how big it's sensor is!

Looks very impressive at high ISO's. Could be a very handy camera to own!
