Olympus developed two E-M1II protoypes. One with 16MP 3D stacked sensor and one with 20MP sensor

This is now the third time I hear it: Sources reported that Olympus actually developed two E-M1II cameras. One with the Olympus 3D stacked sensor (PDF download here) and one with a 20MP sensor. And according to the sources the marketing department pushed the more “safe bet” 20MP sensor and the engineers pushed for their own 16MP sensor.

This info of course has to be taken with a decent dose of salt. But somehow I feel a lot fo sympathy for the engineer’s…
