Olympus E-M1 Mark II vs Nikon D500

La macchina fotografica digitale Olympus OM-D EM-1 è stata una delle nostre fotocamere mirrorless preferite sin dalla sua introduzione nel 2013. Ci ha sempre impressionato la sua qualità costruttiva, delle immagini, la quantità di controlli manuali disponibili assieme a tante altre positive caratteristiche. Tre anni dopo il suo ingresso sul mercato resta ancora molto competitiva…

To say that Olympus has topped itself with the E-M1 Mark II is an understatement. The company told us that this camera was overdeveloped, and it shows. Its blazing dual quad-core processors allow for 60 fps burst shooting (18 fps w/continuous autofocus) and ridiculously fast image playback. Combine that with one of the most advanced autofocus systems we’ve seen and 5-axis in-body image stabilization – along with what made the original so impressive – and the Mark II is a force to be reckoned with.

One thing about the Mark II that makes us pause is its price. Its MSRP of $2000 is higher than that of Nikon’s D500 and full-frame D750 (both are $1800), and the Mark II’s Four Thirds is small in comparison to the D500 and other APS-C cameras and tiny versus full-framers.
