Mike can’t see any flaws when he’s using in the Mark II in a professional environment. “It is light, strong, durable and works in all conditions,” he explains. “As a tool, I need to be able to put my hand in my bag, grab a body and lens and instantly know that I will get the results I want. The body is phenomenal and fortunately the Zuiko glass matches it.” He uses the 8mm f/1.8, 7-14mm f/2.8, 12-40mm f/2.8, 40-150mm f/2.8, 300mm f/4, 75mm f/1.8 and has just bought the 25mm f/1.2. “Interestingly, I recently looked at equivalent focal lengths and apertures from other major brands. On average they were three times the price and weight. My system is hand luggage on all airlines,” he says.
Pro photographers need stunning image quality above all else and it’s clear Mike is convinced by the results from his Olympus system. “The optics and image quality easily match anything else out there. More importantly, because of the size and speed of the system, I can take it to more places, more often. When I’m out on location, the flexibility, weight and speed of the system guarantees me the best images more of the time. The Mark II is a tool that’s a pleasure to use, never lets you down and really does deliver the goods. Enough said!”.
