Hands-on with the OM-1 Mark II

This week, we both got the opportunity to get our hands on the brand new OM System OM-1 Mark II. While there are lots of early reviews out there from insiders, we had some specific features we really wanted to test, including:

  • Human Face/Eye detection (improved algorithm)
  • Subject detection autofocus with tracking and smaller AF-target areas
  • Continuous AF with tracking enabled when subject detection is off (C-AF+TR)
  • Slower frame rates in SH2 sequential shooting settings (12.5 and 16.7fps)

We then offer our take as to whether or not the OM System OM-1 MarkII should be in your bag.
