Since 6 weeks the OM-D E-M5 is with me and since 2 weeks the OM-D E-M10 MK2.
I already sold a lot lenses from my Pentax system to afford the stuff I bought for the m43 system. I never believed that I could think about leaving the Pentax system but honestly speaking with the availability of the OM-D E-M1 MK2 I think I will sell my loved K-3.
For my use the small and compact system is ideal. The Pentax system is already a small DSLR system and I chooses this because of the in body stabilisation, the bright view finder and the "compact" design. But the Olympus comes with even compacter design and a grate image stabilisation system. But it lacks on the EVF and the low light capability. The second feature is not so critical because of the grate stabilisation and you don't need to push the ISO so high. But the view finder the refresh rate of my two models can not compete with a DSLR but it is OK. I miss it while portrait shootings. Your model is in the next pose and you can't see is. Maybe there is a option that I didn't found in the menu. (Pleas commend if there is :) )
Why did I get the E-M10 MK2?
Because I thought it would fit better in my mobile Workflow. And it does!
If you have a look on my Instagram account you will see that I like the HDR look and I was missing this feature on my OM-D E-M5, the only way to get HDR was in post processing and on a smart phone I currently didn't finde an App that is capable to do that. To connect the E-M5 with my phone was using a Wi-Fi SD card. It works but not perfectly. The E-M10 MK2 gave me that features and with the new design of the two wheels for adjusting the exposure it even fits better in my hands! So I fell in love with this camera. But I miss a microphone jack and a articulating screen. But if the E-M10 MK2 will not have this feature I would go for the E-M5 MK2.
What is in my bag now?
What is next?
Go out ans shoot, that what I really love with the m43. It is light and I like to take it with me the Pantax makes really good photos but I preferred to take my phone instead of the heavy DSLR.
