More Olympus E-M5II Images Leaked
Along with the E-M5 Mark II price information several new pictures of the mirrorless camera have been leaked online.
It appears that the mirrorless camera borrows its electronic viewfinder and some controls are taken from the E-M1 flagship OM-D camera.
The rear LCD monitor seems to be the vari-angle and the placement of the dial and buttons on the upper surface has changed quite significantly from the current type.
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.
