(FT4) Olympus E-M5III could be announced in October at earliest…

Image on top shows the current E-M5II model

From the latest I heard it seems to be likely that Olympus E-M5III will not be announced in September. It’s very likely we will see it in October. A bit unusual because September is the usual time we see new camera announcements. But With Canon, Sony and Fuji all having announcements in September it’s likely that Olympus wanted to avoid to be stuck in the crowded press time :)

E-M5III rumor summary:
Announcement in October (90% certain)
Same E-M1II sensor with 121 cross-type phase detection pixels. (60% certain)
New processing engine (90% certain)
Lighter, more plasticky but still weather sealed body (60% certain)
Will have USB charging (90% certain)
Same BLS-50 battery of the PEN and E-M10 camera series (60% certain)
