More Olympus OM-D E-M5II images have been leaked on the web, as the mirrorless camera with a Micro Four Thirds sensor is edging closer to its official announcement.
The E-M5 used to be Olympus’ flagship camera until the introduction of the E-M1 during the fall of 2013. Its replacement is scheduled to become official within the next few days and the first photos of the shooter have already been leaked online.
It appears that the so-called E-M5II will come with some design changes that make the camera look more aggressive, a trait borrowed from the higher-end E-M1.
The E-M5 successor appears to be a device aimed at professionals and the latest series of leaks confirms this statement. More Olympus OM-D E-M5II images have showed up online, including shots of its must-have accessories for pro photographers.
Newly-leaked Olympus OM-D E-M5II images reveal camera’s upcoming accessories
Olympus is preparing to release its next-generation mid-range OM-D-series camera. The E-M5II will be introduced soon and it seems like the shooter will not be coming alone.
The latest series of leaks reveals that the E-M5 replacement will be announced along with a battery grip and a vertical grip. These two accessories can be separated for some reason and it seems like they will be sold separately, too.
Moreover, the newly-leaked Olympus OM-D E-M5II images show that a new FL-LM3 flash will also be released on the market. Just like its predecessor, the E-M5II will not employ a built-in flash, so the Japan-based manufacturer will supply an external one that can be attached to the camera’s hot-shoe.
If you fancy underwater photography, then a waterproof casing will become official as well. This way, you can explore the oceans without having the need of purchasing another camera.
Olympus will also introduce a new 14-150mm f/4-5.6 lens
The new Olympus OM-D E-M5II images serve as a confirmation that the Micro Four Thirds camera will become available in black and silver colors.
As stated above, the design is more linear and the texture looks better. The buttons have been rearranged and more of them have been added.
The E-M5 successor will be a beautiful camera and it will be released alongside a 14-150mm f/4-5.6 kit. A photo of this upcoming optic was previously leaked, too, but now it is being shown as mounted on the camera.
The current 14-150mm lens needs to be replaced and the E-M5II launch is the perfect opportunity to draw more attention to the new model. Everything will become official soon, so stay tuned!
