I bought one with the new low price...

I sold mine earlier this year, intended to pick up E-M1.3, but ended up picking up an FF Lumix S1R instead. With the new low price, I just picked one MkII in place of Mk III.

There are killer deals on the E-M1 II right now -- from $899 new to less than $600 for a used one from a reputable vendor. I currently have an E-M5 II with 5 Oly lenses, but have read on this forum that the E-M1 II will fit my large hands better, and of course it has a larger sensor, even better IBIS, and more.

I'm a casual photographer and probably can't justify the expense, but I like nice stuff. And based on my well built E-M5, I would probably love the E-M1.

Just do it if $899 is not a financial problem. You will absolutely adore the OM-D E-M1 Mk II. It is far more camera than any that preceded it.

I want some features of the E-M1.3, so I am considering that upgrade. There is no shame in "settling" for the E-M1.2. It will outperform 97% of all photographers that purchase it.
