The russian webiste Kroupski interviewed Mr. Tosaka from Olympus. Here are a couple of answers we got:
Question: The objects list seems a bit limited (trains, planes…). Do you plan to add some extra types of objects? Is that possible?
Olympus: Although we cannot give details, there are plans to add more subjects via a firmware upgrade.
Question: As far as I understand, the E-M1X is not replacing the E-M1 II, it just starts another line of professional cameras? And the “ordinary” E-M1 line will continue, correct?
Olympus: Both E-M1 Mark II and E-M1X are positioned as professional models. We will continue with the current line-Up strategy with successor models.
Question: What can we expect earlier – E-M5 III or E-M1 III?
Olympus: Although we cannot clearly tell which model comes first, please look forward to it.
