Dpreview interviewed Mr. Setsuya Kataoka from Olympus. These are some of the interesting information he shared:
1) Future OM-D cameras will be able to create multi-shot high resolution images in such a short time that photographers will be able to use the feature handheld.
2) The most important development of the OM-D E-M5 ll is not the High Res Shot mode itself, but the improvements that have been made to the 5-Axis image stabilization system that makes the High Res Shot function possible.
3) The advantage that the improved 5-axis image stabilization system gives OM-D E-M5 ll photographers outweighs simply having more pixels because it produces better detail in images than a full frame DSLR can handheld
4) It is the limitations of the sensor that prevent Olympus from offering ISO 100 but Olympus hopes this will change very soon.
5) Touch AF: Their suppliers are working on making the touch function available right to the edges of the screen.
6) When asked if he would like to make a digital version of the OM-4, with minimal buttons and no rear screen he said that he would love to and that he had been thinking about it for a long time, but he added that he’d have to concentrate on products that make a profit first!
