Olympus E-M1 III Rumored to Feature the Same 20MP E-M1X Sensor

By on

The Olympus E-M1 III mirrorless camera, which is expected to be announced in February 2020, is said to use a 20MP Micro Four Thirds sensor, just like the E-M1X model.

According to previous reports, Olympus E-M1 Mark III announcement is scheduled for Mid-February. We previously reported that the company already had a camera code registered. As is known, the CP + Camera & Photo Imaging Show 2020 is held in late February every year. This year, CP + will open its doors for camera and lens enthusiasts between 27 February 2020 and 1 March 2020.

The Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II was launched in September 2016 and is likely to be replaced. Then the Olympus OM-D came as the flagship of the E-M1X, and the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III, just below it, signals that the next model for the OM-D series is the E-M1 Mark III. As a result, we expect the Olympus E-M1 Mark III to be officially announced before the CP+ 2020.
