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.
