  • The Olympus OM-D E-M10 II is an evolutionary upgrade of 2014's E-M10 camera, principally adding an even better electronic viewfinder, 5-axis image stabilisation system, very useful fully electronic shutter, and AF targeting pad and focus stacking features, along with a better control layout.


  • The OM-D E-M10 II embodies what the Olympus OM-D series is all about; it's a high quality camera that feels great, offers an extensive feature set with bags of control and produces superb quality images yet doesn't take up much space in your bag.


  • The OM-D E-M10 Mark II is a great camera that's packed with the very best Olympus design and technology. Like its stablemates, it has a sleek retro look, a 16-Megapixel CMOS sensor and a speedy autofocus, but new technology like Focus Bracketing and five-axis stabilisation take it even further. It's straight-forward, effective and attractive. We just wish Olympus would update its over-complex menus!.


  • The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II has a unique high-resolution capture mode, but it's not the best camera for shooting fast-moving subjects.


  • It may look similar to the 3-year-old EM-5, but with a plethora of "under-the-hood" improvements, the new Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II far surpasses that camera, and in some ways the flagship OM-D E-M1 too.
    Although not quite as easy to use as the slightly larger Olympus OM-D E-M1, the E-M5 Mark II's revised control layout is well thought-out and the level of customisability is extremely high. The camera is robust – more so than the E-M5 –, and highly responsive. The EVF is among the best we have ever used, with great resolution, good colour rendition, fast refresh rates, a large apparent size and adaptive brightness control.

    The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II is a high-quality, compact ILC made to be easy enough for anyone to use. High-quality still images combined with the easy-to-use video features mean this is the only camera you will need. .


  • The Olympus PEN E-PL7 is a compact Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera that hits a lot of the right notes, but it isn't quite an Editors' Choice.


  • Olympus’ current marketing campaign for its junior Pen series may be devised with females in mind, but neither sex should be at all embarrassed to be seen with the cool white iteration of the E-PL7; there are enough classic stylings here and plentiful creative options for the amateur photography enthusiast to engage both sexes equally.

    The Olympus E-PL7 is a compact and very portable ILC that provides very good image quality and performance. A great collection of lenses and creative shooting modes makes this camera a must see for the photography enthusiast.


  • The Olympus Stylus SH-2 is a stylish compact camera with a 24x zoom. It's a solid performer when shooting Raw, but its JPG output is disappointing.


  • Back in 2014 when we reviewed the Olympus Stylus SH-1, we really wanted to like that camera. After all, it was a beautifully crafted product with a great feature set, responsive operation and a versatile lens. However, we were somewhat let down by its image quality, specifically its sub-par JPEG engine and lack of raw image capture.
    Thankfully, Olympus addressed both of these issues in the new SH-2 model.

    The Olympus Stylus SH-2 is a powerful compact digicam that offers tremendous versatility with its 24x optical zoom lens and 5-axis image stabilization. Easy and creative shooting modes get the most out of the 16-Megapixel CMOS imaging sensor, letting you just snap away.


  • With gorgeous images - even in low light, incredible speed, and a wealth of high-end features, the Olympus OM-D E-M1 is the best Micro Four Thirds camera that money can buy. It's an easy Editors' Choice award winner.


  • Overall, our main criticism of the Olympus OM-D E-M1 lies not with its performance or feature-set, but with its price. £1299 / $1399 body-only is a lot to pay for a compact system camera these days.

    The Olympus OM-D E-M1 surpasses everything that we have seen so far from an ILC. Providing amazing performance and image quality that rivals a lower level pro mode dSLR, this much smaller camera is ready to go anywhere and perform in all situations.
