In an interview with Stephan Wiesner Swiss photographer and Olympus Visionary Thomas Leuthard confirms new E-M10III is coming by end of this year. Just watch the German interview form minute 6:30 to hear it (if you speak German).

What we know is that the camera is going to be announced within 1-2 months. Shipment start could be August-September.

(FT5) Olympus registered a new camera in Russia. It’s the E-M10III.

The Russian agency registered a new Olympus camera. The code of the camera is “IM006”. But I can tell you via my trusted sources this is for the new E-M10III. And the Russian registration spoiled a few details confirming our rumors. The IM006 uses the BLS-50 battery, the BCS-5 charger and it comes in three kits (body only, EZ kit and double kit zoom).

Expect the E-M10III to be announced within the next 6-8 weeks!

(FT3) Future Panasonic GH5 firmware update will give us 20 frames/s in RAW ?


GH5 vs A9 size comparison by CameraSize

I find it hard to believe it but the source who shared this is actually a good one. So unless he got intentionally mislead by Panasonic this could really happen. he reports:

Panasonic is working on a GH5 high speed burst mode. It will also offer up to 20 frames/s in RAW!

It should be added via future firmware update. this would match the current performance of the new Sony A9.
