Hi guys! Welcome back to the second part of my review! As mention before, this will be the more professional part of the review which I have collaborated with a professional photographer, Mark. Mark owns multiple camera brands and frequently shoot photo and videos for weddings and other events BUT he has never used an Olympus Camera before. Can you believe it?  

Well then, it's going to be his first Olympus experience and review! So let's begin with some sample photos taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark-II + M.Zuiko 25mm f1.2 PRO:  

The sample photo and video shots are taken at P.S. Tokyo Cafe where half of the place is naturally lit (first 5 photos) and the other half with warm white lights (last 2 photos). All these are straight out from the camera without edit except resizing.

After testing it for a sample photo and video shoot, what does Mark have to say about this baby? As it is his first time using Olympus, he seems to be quite impressed even from the start. The start up time is almost immediate and it's great for event shooting as every moment is gold. The same goes for the image preview mode. It was quick which comes handy during shoots of short live moments. 

Mark also loves the colour of the photos. This Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark-II captures the real colours quite accurately. This was especially shown on the human skin colour. For those who uses their camera more for portraits, perhaps you could think about trying out this camera.

The lens that Mark have used for this review is the M.Zuiko 25mm f1.2 PRO. The photos comes out with different BOKEH effect according to the focus point and composition of the image. My favourite among the few shots is the 2nd and the last shot above. This lens creates more focus on the subject by having depths between the distance of the subject with the background and foreground.

Now let's have a look at the sample video footage (0:44 - 2:12) using the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark-II + M.Zuiko 25mm f1.2 PRO. by handheld without any stabilizer tool besides the built-in stabilizer in the camera.

Mark also shoot and produces short clips. The short footage he put together which last about 1:30 minutes above were shot using hand-held without any external stabilizer tool. There was no edit on the footage as well except cropping, putting together and transition between slides.

As can seen in the video, the recording went pretty smooth and I can barely notice any jumps in the flow even when moving the camera around the scene. It is either that Mark has an amazing stable hand or the camera stabilizer is working really well. But since Mark compliments the smoothness of the footage, the Camera must be doing really well in providing very stable video shots.

Well, that's it coming from Mark and myself for this review on Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark-II with the M.Zuiko 25mm f1.2 PRO lens.
