Latest rumors indicates that the OM SYSTEM OM-5 price could be around $1599. This is not the final pricing yet, but OM Digital has told retailers that it could be this price. The fact that the OM-5 is on sale at this price leads to estimations that it will be a lower-priced model. Maybe with some features omitted from the OM-1 .
In addition, a new OM SYSTEM lens will come along with this OM System OM-5 mirrorless camera.

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).
