The Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 is the latest in the company’s highly-respected GH-series of still and video hybrid models. Replacing the video enthusiast’s favorite GH4 as the flagship model in the lineup (though the GH4 will be kept on in the range for its lower price), the new camera has a Live MOS 20-Mpix Four-Thirds sensor with in-body 5-axis stabilization and 4K video at 60p with no cropping.
Packed with a raft of high-end features, including 5-axis image stabilization, a new hybrid autofocus system, and a 50Mp high-res shot mode, the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II (E-M1 II) builds on what was already a popular and revered first model. The newly-developed 20.4Mp sensor is also the first Micro-Four-Thirds (MFT) sensor chip to crash through the 80-point barrier in our industry-standard lab tests, making E-M1 II the highest-ranked MTF sensor in our database.

In part 2 of our review of best lenses for the Olympus OM-D E-M1 II (Olympus E-M1 II), we’re looking at the performance of zoom lenses. More versatile than a fixed focal length prime, zoom lenses offer the convenience of a range of focal lengths in a single lens. We’ve tested 20 such lenses on the E-M1 II, covering focal lengths from an ultra-wide-angle 7mm through to a super-telephoto 300mm, equivalent to 14mm to 600mm in 35mm terms. Scores range from a high of 25 points on pro-oriented options such as the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO, to a low of 8 points on the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6.
The Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mk II is the company’s new flagship mirrorless model, sitting above the PENs and is the latest addition to the range. Featuring a newly developed 20.4-MP Live MOS sensor and an impressively powerful TruePic VIII processor, the new model is capable of burst rates of up to 60 fps with AF-S (using the optional electronic shutter mode), and up to 18 fps with AF-C.
