Olympus E-M5 Mark III and PEN-F Mark II Cameras to be Announced at Photokina 2018
Both MFT camera announcement dates are in rumors, but we do not know much about their features yet. We have posted our thoughts and expectations for the upcoming E-M5 Mark III camera.
As a summary final specs sheet includes the 20-Megapixel Four Thirds sensor of PEN-F, better IBIS like the E-M1 Mark II, No PDAF as expected , maybe ISO 100 at base and optimized dynamic range and possible 4K video recording feature.
The sensor might be different as both the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III and PEN-F Mark II cameras could use the new second-generation 20-megapixel Live MOS sensors. As a side note the new PEN-F II could also have Olympus’ hybrid autofocus. Expect a bigger viewfinder for this rangefinder.
