(FT2) What if Simon was right and the new E-M1II is the first camea with Olympus 18 Megapixel geomembrane sensor?



Last year the well-known 43rumors commenter Simon said this about the new Olympus sensor designed for the E-M1II :

Olympus will NOT join the megapix. race. the new sensor will have 18 MP & a new “foil” on the sensor, they call it geomembrane (whatever this means), but the EM-DR (code name for E-M1II) will have a 10 step hires modus to make such fotos with 1/60 sec. out of hand. Great !!!

While Simon has yet to prove to be a reliable source I am wondering…what if the rumor is correct? Would you jump off the chair for happiness? :)
