I just PM'd this to Best Buy in case I want to return it locally. Thought I would try this first since its newer than Sony A6000 plus I already have some lenses from my old Pen Pl-2

How's the sensor on this compare to the one in the a6000?

Sony has a larger sensor.

I noticed that.... so what's the rationale for going with this over the a6000? Better processing or build? I ask because isn't sensor size usually a major differentiating factor among cameras in this price range?

Nvm - you are trying it out because you already have lenses that work with it. Also it's newer. ^^^ re-read your first post. Hopefully it works out for you!

I was going to try this out first since the price is great and the cam is a recent model. It got good reviews except for confusing menus and continuous auto focus tracking isn't the best.

I was also thinking about buying the canon 80D as I'm a canon shooter but I was disappointed with the new 80D not having 4K and no120 fps for slow motion vids. Not much of an update since the 70D. If I don't like this I may wait for a great deal on the a6000 or a6300 or canon 7D mark 2 even canon 6D

The small mirrorless are much easier to carry around although I do like the quality of DSLR especially full frame. My canon 5D mark 2 is still a great cam but it's old now.

Too many options out there. Frown

Great camera. a6000 is a great camera too but the main differentiator for most of these body's isn't sensor size but other features. Take a look here for more info http://thewirecutter.com/reviews/...nder-1000/

The menu problem is overblown, especially if you're comparing to Sony which has a lousy interface. Sony's sensor will be better for sure, but the advantage of Olympus are excellent lenses. Sony has a few that are good, but many are mediocre at best and expensive, especially if you're looking for any zoom better than the kit lens. They are big too.

Olympus and Panasonic have a wide variety of very good primes and zooms. The sensor is behind the times, but not awful. I stay with the system for the size and lens quality.

I have the old PL-2 so I'm a little familiar with the Olympus menu. I hope I can get used to the three knobs on the top.

They do have a great selection of lenses and reasonably priced. I love the Panasonic 20mm 1.7mm pancake lens.

size. i had a nex 6 and now shoot a a7 but while you lose some iq with a m43 sensor you do gain much smaller and cheaper lenses . plus the ibis is a huge bonus if you dont have fast lenses or want to shoot legacy lenses. not to mention while i loved the nex 6 , it becomes terrible ergonomically if the lenses became too big (zooms most of the time )

My g7 with fast primes takes excellent pics comparable to the better aps-c cameras. And low light performance is great with my 1.7 and 1.8 aperture primes.

So point is that another m43 camera such as this omd10 II are great options. I don't see a point going for aps-c over m43. Not saying not too go for apsc for new buyers as there are plenty of excellent options. If i was to go apsc I'd go fujifilm. But I have quite a few m43 lenses plus I'm happy having 4k video. That's also a reason why I haven't gotten an Olympus camera because of 4k and quality video. That's too bad because I really dig Olympus cameras. They are sexy.

Aps-c do offer a slight advantage over m43 but it's only slightly better that it's really negligible. If anyone wants significant improvement over m43 you'd better go full frame.

My experience with m43 to Sony full frame is the low light performance and hugely improved dynamic range. I miss the small range finder body and pancake lenses for pocket ability.

newegg has the same price. body+pancake zoom is cheaper at newegg.

EM10II has a better EVF (view finder), better IBIS (stabilization), and a host of other features and improvements, like silent (electronic) shutter, focus bracketing, and an AF targeting pad. Improved layout of the control buttons and dials too.

Otherwise same IQ and performance as the original EM10.

Paired with a tiny zoom or say the OIy 17/1.8 it's a great combo with a small form factor. Paired with the Oly 12-40 provides great flexibility and IQ at a more modest size/weight.
