DXO Mark tested out Olympus E-M1 Mark II camera and it topped the chart of test scores and become the #1 4/3 format camera ever tested at DXOLAB.
The lowlight performance of the E-M1 Mark II camer even crossed out the Sony made IMX269 sensor score that is being used inside in Panasonic GX8 camera. The Low light performance of the camera is as good as Nikon D500 camera and way better then Canon 80D is we believe the test scores of the LAB.

While comparing with Sony A6500 the scores of the E-M1 Mark II camera look bit inferior to the A6500 camera. But, still the test score of the E-M1 II looks very promising.

While many Canon users complain DXO give biased results when they test a Canon camera, but Canon itself never issued a statement related to that. It’s also true that DXO Mark test results are used today by many comparison engines worldwide. Hence, they have a big impact on overall camera sales worldwide.

and a final look with Nikon D500

Olympus E-M1 mark II test scores are very close to Nikon D500 DSLR. It’s true that Olympus set’s up a new standard of 4/3 format sensor.

Yeah it’s true that the recently announced Olympus E-M1 Mark II camera doesn’t need a tripod while shooting in handheld mode during night for longer exposure.

You will be very surprised to know that the Olympus E-M1 Mark II camera claims to have 6.5 stops of image stabilization that clearly means you can use this camera to capture handheld lonerexposure night shots.

To test the Olympus claim of 6.5 stops of image stabilization system the thephoblographer.com team has decided to put the camera under acid-test and find out that the reality behind the claim.

Olympus E-M1 Mark II Handheld of 15 Sec

During the test they used two lenses –

  • Olympus 12-40mm F2.8 and
  • Olympus 300mm F4

The Olympus 300mm F4 lens when paired  with the Olympus E-M1 mark II camera delivered sharp images upto 1/4 sec of shutter speed which is really awesome considering 300mm focal length at F4 aperture.

The Second and the most decisive test done with the 12-40mm F2.8 lens. The lens output was super sharp upto 15 sec of exposure. That is really a masterpiece of innovation without a doubt.
