Full OM SYSTEM OM-5 Specifications Leaked Online

By on

Full OM SYSTEM OM-5 specifications have been leaked online. The upcoming OM SYSTEM OM-5 mirrorless camera is rumored to have a 20MP, and it is capable of high-speed continuous shooting at 15 frames per second.

Compared to the E-M5 Mark III, the OM SYSTEM OM-5‘s brand name has changed from “OLYMPUS” to “OM SYSTEM” and the “OM-D” logo on the front has changed to “OM-5”. The main difference seems to be that the “E-M5 III” logo on the top is gone, and the color of the power switch on the left shoulder of the silver body has changed from silver to black.

The Olympus E-M5 Mark III currently sells around $1199 in North America (current retail price is $999), so if the price of the OM-5 becomes $1599 as stated, the OM-5 will be significantly more expensive than the E-M5 Mark III. Considering the OM-5 uses the same stacked sensor as the OM-1, $1599 seems reasonable (the OM-1 retails for $2199). See below for Full OM SYSTEM OM-5 Specifications.
