Olympus camera rumours 2019

The OM-D E-M5 Mark III looks to be the most likely next camera from Olympus, we’re hoping its autofocus performance will put DSLRs on the back foot

Olympus OM-D E-M1X

The hottest rumour around Olympus cameras right now is that there’s an OM-D E-M1X waiting in the wings. If the supposedly leaked images circulating on the Internet are to be believed, this will be a double-gripped camera. But with a name like OM-D E-M1X, it seems like it will have a lot in common with Olympus’s existing flagship camera.

Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III

While Olympus won’t want to steal the thunder of the fabulous OM-D E-M1 Mark II, it’s likely to want to produce something to tempt existing OM-D E-M5 II users.

Our betting is that it puts a 20Mp sensor in the OM-D E-M5 II’s body, gives it an improved autofocus system and calls it the Olympus OM-D E-M5 III.

I also expect the High Res Shooting Mode to see the improvement that we saw in the E-M1 II. This will enable it to be used when shooting landscapes with moving elements like trees and water.

The OM-D E-M5 II’s IS system is very good, but it can’t offer the 6.5EV extension to hand-held shooting that the E-M1 II’s system does. Perhaps that too will be improved for the Mark III.

Olympus was keen to underline the video potential of the OM-D E-M5 Mark II, I think this will be the case with the Mark III. Could this mean 4K video capability, variable speed focusing, improved subject tracking and perhaps a flat shooting mode?
