Olympus will announce the E-M5II Micro Four Thirds camera on February 5, while its price details have showed up online before the official launch event.
The most rumored camera of recent times is the Olympus OM-D E-M5II. This device will replace the E-M5 soon, as the company already confirmed its existence at Photokina 2014, while a teaser was posted on the web a few days ago.
So far, the rumor mill has revealed some of its official press photos and specs, while its announcement event has been said to take place in early February.
The confirmation of its exact launch date has just been confirmed by the Japan-based manufacturer, which has sent a press invitation to a special event on February 5.
Moreover, the Olympus E-M5II price details have showed up online, courtesy of a trusted source, who has been right in the past.
The OM-D legend continues on February 5 with the E-M5II unveiling
Olympus has sent an invitation to a press event taking place on February 5. The company says that “the legend continues” and that photographers will take part in an “OM-D experience day”.
This is definitely a hint that the E-M5II is coming, so the mirrorless camera will definitely become official before the start of the CP+ 2015 and will be on-display at the event.

Meanwhile, the price details of the camera, the 14-150mm lens, and its accessories have been leaked along with more photos of the camera. It is worth noting that the prices are expressed in British pounds, so the values could be different in other markets.
The body-only version of the E-M5II will be sold for £900, while the kit containing a 12-50mm lens will cost £1,100. The kit with the 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO lens will be available for £1,500.
Beside the Olympus E-M5II price, the same details have showed up for the 14-150mm f/4-5.6 II lens, which will become official alongside the Micro Four Thirds camera.

The FL-LM3 flash will cost £70, the HLD-8 grip will retail for £200, while the HLD-8G grip will sell for £130.
