(FT5) The E-M5 successor is “a bit” different from current E-M5 (and has “new higher image resolution”).

Two highly trusted sources told me the new E-M5 successor will indeed be announced the first week of February. Both of them already saw the camera and told me the camera looks “a bit different” from the current E-M5. They also told me the camera sensor delivers a new “higher resolution” image. Both sources know the exact specs but for obvious reasons cannot tell me them. But they wanted to let 43rumors readers know they can finally expect to see some new features :)

So let’s sum up the little (but highly FT5 rated) news we have ont he E-M5 successor:
– Sligthly different body style than the current E-M5
– New Image resolution (yes, it’s a bit strange I know. They said higher resolution image and not “sensor”!).
– announcement first week of February 2015

Now let’s hope the “real” specs will pop out soon :)

oh….and do not forget…there is one more thing to come from Olympus. One more exciting camera also to be announced at CP+! Full article on 43rumors here.
