Average Screen Size

With a screen size of 3 inches, the OM-D E-M5 Mark II has a relatively standard screen size compared to most of the other cameras of this age and spec.

We compared all the other 3" screen digital cameras to this digital camera and we think the Olympus PEN E-PL6, and the Nikon 1 J4 ($196.20) which has better reviews; or the Pentax K-500 ($499.99) which is cheaper are also worth considering.

SD Memory Card

This camera supports an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory card, which is the most frequently supported memory card on digital cameras of this age and spec. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

We compared this digital camera to all the other digital cameras that support an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory and we think because of it's better review score, the PEN E-PL6, and the PEN E-PL6 both from Olympus is also worth considering.

Cameras with a better memory card type that might be worth looking at include the Pentax K-500 ($499.99) (Eye-Fi|SD|SDHC|SDXC) which is also cheaper.

Average Weight

The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II has a pretty typical weight (417 grams) compared to most of the other digital cameras of this age and type.

Cameras with a heavier weight that might be worth looking at include the Pentax K-500 ($499.99) (590g and cheaper); or the Olympus PEN E-PL6 (279g and higher rated).

Average Megapixel Count

With a megapixel count of 16.1 megapixels, the OM-D E-M5 Mark II has a pretty typical megapixel count compared to most of the other cameras that were released more than a year ago.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 16.1MP digital cameras currently available including because of it's better review score, the Olympus PEN E-PL6.

If this camera megapixel count is not high enough for you then you might also want to consider the Nikon 1 J5 ($268.00) (20.8MP), or the Canon M3 ($368.00) (24.2MP) which is also higher rated.
