E-M1X vs E-M1III via camerasize

OM Digital promised to launch a new camera with “WOW” factor in early 2022. And one of the big news should be the new sensor. A source told me:

new flagship camera (OM 1D) will be announced in early 2022 but it will be teased in autumn this year already;
– the camera will have global shutter;

What we know so far about the OM Digital WOW camera:

  • It’s a Micro Four Third camera
  • To be teased in fall 2021 with launch in early 2022
  • It might have a new global shutter sensor
  • It has the size of a E-M1III body and it’s not an E-M1X alike camera.

Olympus announced the new lens roadmap: 20mm f/1.4 and 40-150mm f/4.0 coming!

Surprise! OM Digital released this new lens roadmap. Here are the two new lenses:

  • Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 20mm F1.4 PRO
  • Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm F4.0 PRO

And three more teased lenses with no specs:

  • macro in the 100mm focal length range
  • Two telephoto rooms in the 50-150mm lens range.

Here are the images of the two new lenses:

this is a new source but he also shared me some other info I know it’s true. So this may become true indeed!
