A classic upgrade Olympus enhances its affordable, award-winning OM-D E-M10 CSC, announcing its successor, the Mark II

Fixed and fast Two new exciting SP lenses from Tamron, the fast, fixed focal SP 35mm f/1.8 Di VC USD and the SP 45mm f/1.8 Di VC USD Continue reading on page 5

The Olympus OM-D E-M10 is undeniably popular with its award-winning credentials and fair price point, so with the release of the Mark II, its successor has rather big boots to fill. If you’ve got something that works, there’s no need to fix it and that philosophy carries with the Mark II. It takes forward its predecessor’s 16.1-megapixel sensor, Wi-Fi connectivity and tiltable, bright and contrasty touchscreen. The big improvement comes in the form of

5-axis image stabilisation – compared with the E-M10’s 3-axis system– as well as a viewfinder with quality that’s almost double that of the original’s. Body only, it costs £549.99, add a 14-42mm pancake lens and it rises to £649.99. With the pancake lens and a 40-150mm, it’s retailing at £749.99 and with the 14- 150mm you’ll pay £799.99.
