Olympus OM-D E-M10 Cameras (2015) vs Sony α6x00 (Advanced APS-C) Mirrorless Cameras (2016)

Analysis:

The Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II (2015) managed to impress reviewers from two reliable and unbiased sources that conduct their own hands-on testing, namely shotkit.com and The Verge. It performed great in their roundups - it earned the "Top Pick" title from shotkit.com and "Ranked 2 out of 8" from The Verge, which makes it a product worthy of consideration.

Moving on to the Sony α6500 (2016): it was unable to reach the very top of any roundups from sources that conduct reliable and unbiased testing. Nonetheless, it still managed to impress reviewers from a number of such sites, like camerajabber.com, Photography Blog, TrustedReviews, Techradar, Digital Photography Review, DXOMARK, The Phoblographer, PCmag, Tom's Guide, Digital Camera World, creativebloq.com, and The Independent, enough for them to include them on those lists.

Out of the sources that tested and rated both of these Mirrorless Cameras, Photography Blog, The Phoblographer, and Digital Camera World preferred the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II (2015), whereas reviewers at DXOMARK liked the Sony α6500 (2016) better. Techradar and PCmag gave them identical review scores.

We also took a look at which sources liked these products best - the highest Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II (2015) rating came from Photography Blog, whereas the Sony α6500 (2016) most impressed reviewers at camerajabber.com; they earned scores of 10 and 10, respectively.

Lastly, we averaged out all of the reviews scores that we could find on these two products and compared them to other Mirrorless Cameras on the market. We learned that both of them performed far better than most of their competitors - the overall review average earned by Mirrorless Cameras being 7.9 out of 10, whereas the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II (2015) and Sony α6500 (2016) managed averages of 8.6 and 8.3 points, respectively.

Due to the difference in their prices, however, it's important to keep in mind that a direct Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II (2015) vs. Sony α6500 (2016) comparison might not be entirely fair - some sources don't take value for money into account when assigning their scores and therefore have a tendency to rate more premium products better.
