Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II Camera Is Now On Sale

Olympus has announced the new Olympus OMD EM1 MK II; a camera that they’re trying to aim at the professional and high end enthusiast. The new flagship mirrorless, which will hit stores in December for $2,000 (body only), is loaded with the high-end specs. Which includes a 20.4-megapixel Live MOS sensor (Micro Four Thirds), and a dual quad-core Truepic VIII image processor, 121-point autofocus sys and in-camera stabilization. Above all, though, the E-M1 Mark II is about sheer speed, and featuring 18-fps shooting with continuous autofocus and autoexposure enabled, or an insane 60 frames per sec if those settings are locked.

Olympus OMD EM1 MK II Camera Features:

The Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II camera is a worthy successor the original, that’s itself still a very capable and flexible compact sys camera option. The redesigned body is more comfortable to use and grip, and the features like the camera’s blazing fast burst rate, lens and the body optical stabilization combo, as well as 4K video recording all bode well for how this camera will perform in real world.

Olympus new Macro flash is weatherproofed, with projection against dust, freezing and splashes, to match the OM-D E-M1 Mark II’s environmental protections, and it is set to arrive in January 2017. The backpack go on sale at the end of December, and likely in time for the EM-1 Mark II’s launch.
