(FT5) Olympus is working on a global shutter but it will not be used on the E-M1X


Size comparison: E-M1II with grip vs future E-M1X and the Canon 1DX (Thanks Robert).

A trusted source told me this:

Olympus is working on a global shutter that does not read lines but the whole sensor at once. This will not be used with the E-M1X camera.

Sounds like Olympus is close to introducing these sensor on future OMD or PEN cameras coming after the E-M1X.
