Sensor-If you want to go for best images with sharpness and clarity then we recommend Sony A6000 that carries 24.3 mp of resolution and the heavy APSC sensor but look at the resolution and sensor of E-M10 II both are weaker in compared to Sony A6000.


Image Stabilization- The lens of Olympus M10 II holds 5- axis Voice Coil Motor (VCM) Image Stabilization IS to correct the camera shake problem and provide you a blur free images. This 5axis also corrects for rolling blur that affects both low-light shooting and the horizontal and vertical shift blur that can impair the quality of macro shots.

AF system- The Fast Hybrid AF system utilizes both a 179-point phase-detection system and 25-point contrast-detection system in Sony A6000 that promises you to achieve the fast and accurate shots of the images taking the advantage of a Spatial Object Detection algorithm but on the other hand the camera has only contrast detect mode with 81 areas.

Shutter speed- To freeze the motion of the subjects the faster shutter speed is more beneficial and that is 60 sec 1/16000 secs in Olympus M10 II but you have only 30 sec 1/4000 secs in Sony A6000.

Shooting speed- Continuous shooting speed is also more in Sony A6000 that is 11 fps to help you to freeze every action of the subjects that is moving rapidly but on the other hand you have only 8.5fps in Olympus M10 II.

Verdicts- Except image stabilization and shutter speed we are unable to find any special features in Olympus M10 II so in such kind of cases we think Sony A6000 is best camera to recommend.
