Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II Review at DigitalRev

Digital Rev has posted its latest video review with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II with Kai at the helm again. While he’s not a fan of the retro styling, he seems to think the E-M5 Mark II is a solid Micro Four Thirds camera.

It looks like the E-M5 Mark II is shaping up to be quite the versatile camera.
