OLYMPUS OM-D E-M5 Mark II, Compact System Camera
"EISA AWARD European Prosumer Compact System Camera 2015-2016"
The OM-D E-M5 Mark II is the Compact System Camera boasting advanced, powerful, in-body image stabilization system achieving compensation performance of 5 shutter speed steps (based on CIPA standards) . Also its dustproof and splashproof, compact, lightweight body, and lens systems providing excellent mobility, both ensure the top-class image quality for still images and movies in any environment taken hand-held with interchangeable lens camera.
The EISA jury comments: "The OM-D E-M5 Mark II features an innovative 40-million pixel HR composite mode which achieves image quality close to that of high-resolution full frame DSLRs for static subjects. Its combination of superb electric viewfinder, fully articulated touchscreen and extremely effective 5-axis in-body image stabilization system results in what EISA describe as an "exceptionally capable camera". The enhancements to movie features also make the Mark Ii very attractive to videographers."
M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f2.8 PRO, interchangeable lens
"EISA AWARD European Professional Compact System Lens 2015-2016"
In the M.Zuiko PRO category of professional lenses, this lens boasts high optical performance, splash & dust proof construction and robustness, and regularly provides high image quality under any conditions.
The EISA jury comments: "The M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f2.8 PRO lens offers noteworthy performance, covering the same picture angles as an 80-300mm lens for full frame but in a much smaller and lighter enclosure. The judges praised the exceptional build quality of the lens, which will enable professionals to use under challenging conditions. The zoom range, combined with the large and constant f2.8 aperture, readily replaces almost any fixed focal length lens in its range. The judges also highlighted the outstanding sharpness and optical correction the lens yields."
