Pro Offers a simple way to access commonly used menu options
You can put your most often used menu options in a separate menu tab called My Menu for quick access.
Pro Reasonable video quality
While minor moire and oversharpening issues can be noticed, the video quality is comparable to most other cameras in this class. The camera can shoot at up to 1080p at 60fps.
Pro Great high ISO performance
Noise reduction on the camera works amazingly well. Up until ISO 3200 noise is minimal even with 100% crops with it becoming noticeable at ISO 6400 and up.
Pro Excellent image quality
Great JPEG output. The camera offers useful processing options for JPEGs. Great RAW performance. Moire is virtually nonexistent.
Pro Reasonable continuous AF performance
Pro Good amount of customization options
Pro Amazing image stabilization
Pro Supports standard Four Thirds lenses
Built-in phase detection allows you to use standard Four Thirds lenses via an adaptor.
Pro Good electric viewfinder
The viewfinder is bright and sharp.
Pro Great focusing system
The focusing system is quick, it rarely if ever resorts to focus hunting and it's consistently accurate.
Pro In-body stabilization saves money on lenses
Since stabilization can be applied to any lense, you can save money by not having to spend it on stabilized lenses which are generally more expensive than non-stabilized lenses.
Pro Convenient in-camera RAW conversion
Pro Quick access to settings
The camera takes a "buttons and dials for everything" approach. It's also possible to change what some of the buttons do.
Pro Great image quality
E-M1 takes sharp 16MP images with tonal colors. There's little noise up until 1250 ISO and there's little smudging up until 6400 ISO.
Pro Continuous autofocus works well at a distance
Continuous autofocus is reasonably reliable using long lenses at a distance. It works slightly better with the subject coming closer/moving away from the camera than it does when the subject is moving from side to side.
Pro Can preview HDR images in viewfinder
HDR images can be composited in-camera and the output seen using the viewfinder.
Pro MFT lens mount allows for a wide variety of lenses to choose from
Micro Four Thirds system is a standard used by Panasonic, Olympus, Sigma and many others so you're not locked into a having to buy lenses from one manufacturer.
Con AF tracking in continuous shooting is highly lens dependent
With some lenses the tracking is fast and the hit-rate is high while others give highly inconsistent results. Additionally, while overall the faster the lens the better the results, there are exceptions. And while such behaviour is expected with all cameras, the degree to which X-Pro 2 is affected by this is noticeably greater than comparable cameras.
Con Continuous autofocus while shooting video is not safe
AF can decide to refocus in the middle of capturing footage.
Con Auto ISO can't be set up based on focal-length
Con ISO dial is somewhat impractical
Con Video quality could be better
The video is limited to 24MBit max bitrate.
Con Limited framerate options
Shooting in 1080p the camera is limited to 30fps, there are no slow-mo options or 24fps options.
Con Continuous autofocus is spotty at close range
Continuous autofocus is sometimes seen hunting with wide angle lenses at short range.
