(FT4) rumor correction: E-M5II has “older” E-M5 sensor without PDAF.

I have to correct an error from one of my trusted sources. He made a mistake and he said he is now almost certain the E-M5II uses the same E-M5 16 megapixel sensor without PDAF and not the E-M1 sensor with PDAF as he previously told me. He said sorry for the misunderstanding :(
The same source said he has been told that at the end the E-M5II is not really made to hold the bigger FT lenses. The E-M1 is more appropriate for that.
On the other hand more sources confirmed that the camera will get the sensor shift function to shoot up to 40 megapixel (in up to 8 shots). So that is now nearly impossible to be wrong :)
Personal note: Really sorry about the mistake. It happens 1-2 times per year that even FT5 rumor get wrong. I hope ot make it good with some great new FT5 rumors :)
