According to recent rumors, Olympus will announce the mid-range mirrorless camera Olympus E-M5 Mark III on October 17, 2019. The company already registered this Micro Four Thirds camera in overseas certification body under the “IM016” code name.
The highly anticipated Olympus E-M5 Mark III camera coming soon with “Surprise” new functions and mechanisms. One of them is that the Micro Four Thirds camera can do handheld high resolution shooting just like the OM-D E-M1X.
