Olympus OM-D E-M5 will be replaced by E-M5 Mark II, a mirrorless camera with a new sensor shift mechanism and design. The mirrorless shooter will have the same E-M5 16-megapixel sensor without PDAF and the same 5-axis image stabilization system and proven dust-proof and splash-proof technology used on the OM-D E-M5.

The Pixel Shift mechanism found in some Hasselblad cameras, such as the H5D-200c, make it possible to capture 40MP images using the 16MP sensor inside the E-M5II by shifting the sensor and combining up to 8 shots into one.

Along with the Olympus E-M5II mft camera, the M.Zuiko Digital ED 7-14mm f/2.8 PRO lens is said to be released during the CP+ 2015 show.
