Olympus is rumored to launch a new OM-D camera at the Photokina 2014 show this Fall. Even there is not much details in the rumor, the upcoming OM-D camera could replace the highly popular E-M5.
According to trusted sources Olympus plans to launch a new OM-D mirrorless camera with a Micro Four Thirds image sensor at Photokina in September.

New Olympus OM-D Mirrorless Camera To Be Announced at Photokina 2014
There is no details about the specifications list or the price of the upcoming OM-D camera. But if we want to speculate what could be the next OM-D camera here are some thoughts!
OM-D E-M10 was announced earlier this year, while the OM-D E-M1 was announced back in late 2013. So both of these new OM-D models are currently selling well and Olympus supports the series with new lenses and accesories.
The OM-D E-M5 is a micro four thirds camera announced back in February 2012. Olympus E-M5 feature a 16 megapixel sensor, ISO up to 25,600, high resolution 1.4million dot EVF, built-in image stabilization and tiling touch screen.
The Olympus OM-D E-M5 looks like the only camera on the horizon that most likely to be replaced. However if rumors are true in a very short period we’ll see if this will be the Olympus E-M5 successor or a different level camera!
