The professional's choice CSC, the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II is revolutionary, in every way. Never before has a CSC been so equipped for continuous shooting and fast autofocus that this weatherproof camera is making many photographers choose this compact tool in place of their existing heavyweight kit.

It builds on the accomplished design of the E-M10 with improved 20 megapixel chip, flagship VIII processor, dual SD card slot, articulate LCD screen and best of all, a 1700 shot battery capable of charging in two hours.

It features similar controls to the E-M10 with the standard Olympus "OK" control button in centre place but with just a few more control boxes to customize it if preferred. Just like the new Tough TG5 it offers dustproof, splashproof and freezeproof protection.

Its 18fps continuous mode is groundbreaking in this category of camera and even beats the Canon EOS 1D X which is 2.5x more expensive.

Other feature of note include the TruePic VIII Image Processor which is dual core - four for shooting and four for saving but the feature that really impresses is Pro Capture. This innovative shooting mode in the OM-D E-M1 Mark II exploits the virtual elimination of shutter lag by recording up to 14 sequential frames before the shutter release is fully pressed, thereby ensuring you capture the perfect moment every time where other cameras miss. This is a highly creative option aslong with Focus Bracketing, Focus Stacking and Live Composite for educational students buying this camera.

Remember, that when considering Olympus and the world of Micro Four Thirds CSC, lenses are double the equivalent of 35mm thinking. So a 14-42mm supplied as standard is like fitting a 28-85mm lens. Although standard OMD lenses will fit this body there is a professional range more suited for use with it.
We recommnd the 25mm, 85mm, 12-100mm and 40-150mm models.
