mcshan: The IQ of the E-M1 seems better? If the camera is this size why not carry an APS-C or Sony fullframe? This is pushing big camera and smaller sensor.

>Trust me, no one is getting upset over Your spending habits.

Well that's not true. There''s are least one MrALLCAPS that is upset. So right there, you lie.

Mateus1: Olympus M1 mkII versus others:

M1 mkII $2000 - Fuji X-T2 $1600
M1 mkII $2000 - Fuji X-Pro2 $1550
M1 mkII $2000 - Sony A6500 $1400
M1 mkII $2000 - Sony A7 II $1500
M1 mkII $2000 - Pentax K-1 $1950
M1 mkII $2000 - Pentax K-3 II $850
M1 mkII $2000 - Nikon D500 $1800
M1 mkII $2000 - Nikon D750 $1800
M1 mkII $2000 - Canon D6 $1500

For me it's clear, no m4/3 cam is worth in 2017 this mad $2000 price. Period. I do not take all these arguments about M1 mkII size benefit (give me a brake it's bigger and heavier than all APS-C, and same as a few FF, and Olys Pro lenses are huge, heavy & pricely too), WR (others are WR), 4K (others have it), IBIS (others have it), build (other are also bulid great). Most important thing is: M1mk2 offer the tiniest sensor in big body - it's 25% size of FF and almost 2 time smaller then APS-C (you know how it impact on IQ). All I can say is this: I would never pay in 2017 for best m4/3 more then $1300 if I have such amazing offer from APS-C and FF today.

and with 1/2 sensor missing its still 2x the camera and value of the others.

Seeky: This camera would have been impressive, if there was a 35mm sensor inside.

If it had a FF sensor it wouldn't have the speed or do with FF sensor what the IBIS can do with the 4/3 sensor.

aramgrg: Just a quick comparison. When E-m5 was announced in 2011, it was $1300 with 12-50 and it was a huge step up in the mirrorless market. Now E-m1 is not an update in IQ part(vs 2011!), but little improvements over e-m5, that costs twice more. Most of us cares more about image quality, rather than 60fps of crap.

@entoman Olympus has a pro service http://www.getolympus.com/us/en/proadvantage?SID=pcgktk5cusoruhcueu7s9s03u1 I believe its new so will have to wait for the service reviews.

dharma108: Yes, the price is up there--but here is a perspective to consider. I paid $1799 US dollars for an Oly E5 (body only) six years ago and the E-M1 Mark II far surpasses it on all levels. A $200 price increase from six years ago for a far superior camera.
At the time I bought the E5 there was nary a complaint about it being too expensive. I am still shooting the E5 and it's still creating great images, but E-M1 Mark II will soon be in my camera bag.

@dharma108 Said E-5 you're the one messing up models and changing directions.

TheClueless: Surprising how much it's fallen apart at 1600 even compared with the GX8 - which isn't in any way competitive with the D500 IQ wise.

Actually I'm not a fanboy I don't own any M43 bodies as the EM1 mk1 didn't have a FAS and only a title screen. I shoot with an E5 . Here's a frozen one for you https://www.flickr.com/photos/74082557@N00/7944614880 and http://www.markhumpage.com/Mother-Nature/British-Weather

kpaddler: Is it me or others see it too? The image quality scores about 70% for jpg (80% raw). And this camera still scores an 85. You must have really really liked the buttons, straps, packaging, and general fumbling-ability of the camera.

Yah because image quality is the only thing that matters on a camera. Why do manufacturers even bother with other things and just make peep hole cameras only.

Well you can get a G85 kit for way cheaper then the X-t2 and its weather sealed. If I wasn't getting the EM1 the G85 would be no brainier especially both sensor and lens shift.

Here's one to think about. I wanted to get the Em1 mk1 but even with is way better IQ than my E5 I didn't get it because it didn't have a FAS. Think about that one.

There is weather sealed and then there's Olympus weather sealed

@aramgrg Most of us cares more about ...

Citation needed...

Where I sit ergonomics, build quality, lens quality, functionality speed beats IQ any day since my photography skills could never be limited by any of today's ILC cameras or sensors.

Saurat: Interesting, according to DPR's own compare-mode, Raw image-quality is less good than the original EM1. It is also less good than many entry-level cameras, such as the Canon 1100D and Nikon D3200. How accurate these algorithms are I don't know, but for $2000 I'd like at least token IQ improvement.

I'd take build quality/weather sealing and processor/electronics/shutter/AF speed any day over IQ.

ekaton: I am amazed about the number of insecure mft shooters (I do own a PenF). No matter the impressive speed and top build quality the sensor is the achilles heel of this newest mft flagship. I hear it is sport shooters wet dream. But sport shooting requires speed, not only fps, buffer speed, EVF refresh rate, but also high shutter speed to freeze motion. The latter requires to increase iso, unless its outdoors sport in bright daylight, and back to the sensor problem we are....

Strange and here I thought the achilles heel was the person behind the view finder.

@Mike99999 You got quite the anti m43 obsession. Did it beat you up in the school yard one day?

Ok see how fast the GX8 would fall apart is say Iceland frozen and wet.

@Aroart > Sorry, but I would rather take an xt2, d500 or 2 d7200's for that price...

Well I'd rather get a G85/12-60 weather sealed kit for $997, couple of hookers, some blow and shooms with some nice spiced rum and still have enough for a hot tub hotel room and cab fare home vs all those other cams.

Elite83: Seems like a large body for a M43 sensor in my opinion. If someone is shopping for a compact mirrorless, why not opt for a crop or even FF a la Sony? Sony owns a good chunk of Olympus anyway.

Why would you worry what they spend their money on? Can you explain to me how someone who spends $2000K on an EM1:2 and happily uses it to take photos/videos was a bad decision on their part?
