E-M5III wishlist specs by CameraJabber

The next OMD camera announced by Olympus is likely to be the new E-M5III. I don’t think it’s coming soon as I heard Olympus did slow down the release cycle of ALL their cameras. CameraJabber speculated what specs the new E-M5III could have:

20.4MP sensor
Improved IS
High Res Shooting mode
Improved AF
4K video 30fps
1080p at 120fps
Change position of ports
Dual SD card slots
Built in ND filter
Log gamma curve for flat recording
Built in audio high pass filters
Audio monitoring without adding the grip
Programmable focus shift
Focus Peaking colour options
Ability to adjust Continuous AF speed in video

I hope the real camera specs are close to these listed by CJ!
