Olympus E-M1 Mark II Has Better Dynamic Range Than E-M1X

Photons to Photos published their sensor test results for the Olympus E-M1X camera and it seems that the old E-M1 Mark II has a better dynamic range than the higher-end model. The E-M1X performance is almost identical to the E-M5 Mark II model that is 5 times cheaper than the E-M1X.

The new Olympus E-M1X Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera US price is $2,999. It is now in stock and shipping. Olympus OM-D E-M1X: $2,999 at Adorama | B&H | Amazon.

Compared to the other Micro Four Thirds camera, the Olympus E-M1x sensor is a bit worse than OM-D E-M1 Mark II at high ISO levels. Actually both cameras uses the same 20MP Four Thirds sensor and AF system.
