(FT5) The new Olympus E-M1X is a “Canon 1dx level” camera. Has built-in vertical grip!

The current E-M1II vs the Canon 1DX (via CameraSize).

Another trusted source who saw the camera told me the new E-M1X is a “Canon 1dx level” camera. It means it’s oriented for serious sports photographer and it has an integrated vertical grip! I am working to get some specs and also detailed info on the rumored “unique” features this camera will have. Olympus will throw in a lot of innovation in this camera also to show what’s possible to achieve with a MFT camera.

As reported previously this camera will be announced in January!

(FT4) The new Olympus camera could be named “Olympus OMD E-M1X”

I am yet not 100% sure about this but the new camera that Olympus will announce in January might be announced “Olympus OMD E-M1X“. This differes from a rumor I got months ago where sources told me it could be named “Olympus OMD E-M1S“. But a source who SAW!!!! the camera told me the “X” was now engraved on the camera.

The camera will be announced in January. And I should get some early specs very soon…

(FT5) New Olympus OMD will be very expensive and outshine current models

I once more got confirmation that Olympus will announce a new OMD camera in January. And they all said this camera is:

1) Very expensive
2) Built to outshine all current models

I am working to get some early specs of this camera. But Olympus will have to offer something extraordinary to get back the spotlight from the new Nikon Z, Canon EOS-R and Fuji X-T3 cameras. And sources keep hinting to me that yes, it will have some stunning features!

Can’t wait to learn more about it :)
