(FT3) New E-M5III has lighter, more plasticky but still weather sealed body

Image on top shows the current E-M5II model
One source told me that Olympus has designed the new E-M5III body to be:
– Lighter
– more plasticky (to save weight)
– still weather sealed
Let’s hope that by using more plastic they will also reduce the price :)
