I hope the surprising rumor I received recently is true. It says the new Olympus E-M1II that is expected to be announced on September 19 could have a new Olympus designed and Sony produced sensor!

One source added the following info:

“The sensor is trimmed for maximal AF speed and very fast parallel signal output reading. The sensor reading is twice as fast than ont he current [shoplink 59394 ebay]Olympus PEN-F[/shoplink].”

This would be a hell of a news! Finally a real new(!) MFT sensor!

All other current confirmed E-M1II specs:

4K video (first Olympus camera with 4K)
Dual SD card slot
Handheld High Resolution mode
Much improved autofocus performance
new high-resolution EVF
Announcement at Photokina in September
It has no global shutter. But Olympus worked hard to reduce rolling shutter to a negligible level
