Kai's hands-on review of the E-M1 Mark II

Kai (formerly of DigitalRev) has just posted a video review of the E-M1 Mark II in action. He is extremely impressed with it, apart from C-AF during videos. Hopefully that can be sorted out with firmware updates.

Re: Kai's hands-on review of the E-M1 Mark II

Kai was critical of C-AF in video, but he needs to learn how to use it instead of just running it down. He should talk to Chris Eyre-Walker with his video where he makes the sensitivity adjustment within C-AF for video & then it works correctly for the situation. See here. http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthread.php?t=43641

Re: Kai's hands-on review of the E-M1 Mark II

It's entertaining, but is it really a review?

I agree it is entertaining. He has a style I didn't expect to like but I do. Maybe not a detailed review but certainly an enthusiastic one.
