Olympus has announced the development of the E-M1 Mark II flagship OM-D product. The 20MP camera is able to shoot at up to 18 fps in Raw, with autofocus or 60 fps at full-res Raw if you don't need autofocus.
The camera will come later this year, the company says, having spent four years in development. The company says dynamic range is improved, with noise performance improved by 1EV (though we're somewhat sceptical about this).
The camera has 121 cross-type AF on-sensor phase detection points, spread over a wider area than its predecessor. It also has a new algorithm that should be better at tracking.
The autofocus system is completely new, the company says. 'Improved in terms of performance, precision and operation.' This is underpinned by twin quad core processors, one of which is dedicated to autofocus.
The camera can also shoot 4K video, including the wider aspect ratio 'DCI' Cinema 4K at up to 236mbps.
A revised EVF runs at 120fps with a reaction time of 6ms.
Higher capacity battery with faster charging.
Grip is more secure to work better with larger lenses.
Dual UHS-II SD slots.
