New Olympus OM-D EM1-II Whisperings

New Olympus OM-D EM1-II Whisperings

We have received new information regarding the elusive successor to the Olympus OM-D EM1. A trusted source has has hinted the following:

“e-m1 II has 4k, dual SDcard slot, new TruPic and new AF”

The new tip ties in nicely with a previously reported rough specification for the camera which suggested we could expect the following features:

  • 20MP sensor (made by Sony)
  • 4K video (first Olympus camera with 4K)
  • Dual SD card slot
  • Handheld High Resolution mode
  • Much improved autofocus performance
  • new high-resolution EVF
  • Announcement at Photokina in September
  • It has no global shutter. But Olympus worked hard to reduce rolling shutter to a negligible level

We are slowly getting an impression now of what we can expect from the OM-D EM1 II, an important camera for Olympus, which will not only be their flagship OM-D, but will be expected to steal some sales from larger format cameras from rivals Sony and Fuji.
