Re: Night sky with OMDEM5 II

I have been using the EM1 for astrophotography but have been concerned that the on sensor PDAF sensors degrades the sensor performance. With Astrophotography every photon counts. So one of the reason I have recently brought the EM5 Mk II is hoping that there will be an improvement in astrophotography images as I have read some very encouraging comments on the EM5 mkII for this use. I recently took a high res shot of the moon with the 300mm F4 here

At the moment I am still waiting for astro dark skies and some of the galaxies to appear in the right part pf the sky so have not yet been able to see if the em5 mkII is any better than the EM1.

As far as lenses are concerned you really need to be using the fastest aperture lens you can afford. You also need very dark skies sites.

OM-D E-M1, 12-40 f2.8 Pro, Tamron 14-150mm f5.8, E5, E3, Zuiko 50-200mm SWD, Zuiko 12-60mm SWD, Zuiko ED 70-300mm f5.6, 50mmf2, Zuiko ED 9-18mm f5.6, Sigma 50-500mm f6.3, EC14, EC20, RM-1, VA-1
