I got two more info from anonymous sources about the new E-M1II:
Same E-M5II articulating display, 48 MP high res mode without tripod. IMproved Ergonomie. Pictbridge VIII. Overall 20 % better image quality than the E-M1.
Source 2 (Simon):
New sensor, hiRes without tripod !!!!, this is great– so no need for FF Kamera), scratchresitance Screen, Videomodus (4K ) and an new mic solution (3d sound).
These are from new sources so I cannot yet confirm if the info here is correct. The current info from trusted sources is that the E-M1II specs are:
4K video (first Olympus camera with 4K)
Dual SD card slot
Handheld High Resolution mode
Much improved autofocus performance
new high-resolution EVF
Announcement at Photokina in September
It has no global shutter. But Olympus worked hard to reduce rolling shutter to a negligible level
