First Olympus E-M1 Mark II Rumors

First Olympus E-M1 Mark II rumors started to surface over the web which is expected to become the E-M1 successor.

According to the latest Olympus rumors, the Company will add a 1/32000s electronic shutter mode to the OM-D E-M1 Mark II camera.

If Olympus maintains its product launch schedule, the next high-end model will be the OM-D E-M1 Mark II and the announcement at Photokina 2016 will make sense.

Because the Company introduces one OM-D-series camera per year. The E-M5 announced in February 2012, the E-M1 in September 2013, the E-M10 in January 2014 and the E-M5II announced in February 2015.

To wrap-up the first Olympus E-M1 Mark II rumors, the Micro Four Thirds camera will feature 18-megapixel sensor which supports the 40-megapixel high resolution mode introduced in the E-M5 Mark II. It is likely this feature will be available in the E-M1 Mark II without the need of a tripod. The mirrorless camera will have an electronic shutter of 1/32000s and able to capture 4K videos.

The upcoming E-M1 Mark II mirrorless camera with a Micro Four Thirds image sensor is expected to be announced at Photokina 2016.

    And people are still buying Cannikon because…?
    Smaller. Lighter. Faster. Powerful. Sharp inexpensive glass. The age of DSLR has ended. A new era of ILC has begun.

      I’m unsure. Nikon still has very good ergonomics. The cameras are responsive and well designed for the task. The Olympus 12-40 f/2.8 is nice, but a Nikon full frame user can achieve the same with a cheaper f/5.6 lens by increasing their ISO setting and taking advantage of the larger sensor.

      It’s nice to have such a compact camera. I can throw my EM5 into my backpack when out in the Dales. The photos are very nice, albeit a little grainy, and having a live view has opened a whole new world of adjusting metering as I go. but I think SLR still has its advantages in certain uses.

    Nope DSLR is far from dead, they are withering on the vine however in the onslaught of advanced lighter weight grab and go camera solutions. The downside to the smaller form factors is that most people don’t have small hands, so small cameras can be cumbersome to handle.
    I’d still take a full frame over a crop in almost every scenario.
    Time will tell as to who comes out with a solution that is universally loved.

      Hence the Sony A7 line.

      How do all those large handed people deal with cell phones, a fraction of the size of a MFT Camera?

    Olympus is catching on that we want better video. I love it! If they can pull of 4K with that 5axis stabilization built in, I’ll pick one up for sure. That could convert some GH4 users if they do it right.

    4K video, 40mp high res mode handheld, electronic shutter to 32000th s – no brainer – shut up and take my money

    It will also have a laser sight, fingerprint authentication, and built-in lens cleaning.

    Didn’t the E-M10ii come out this year too? That means that they don’t necessarily only intro 1 OM-D per year.

    Hopefully Olympus will continue to add the dual sensor option to their cameras so that their loyal customers who spent thousands of dollars on their expensive Zuiko four thirds lenses won’t get left holding expensive glass that they can not purchase an upgraded body for.
