New Olympus OM-D E-M5II specs leaked before launch event

A list of new Olympus OM-D E-M5II specs has been leaked on the web, hinting that the Micro Four Thirds camera will be welcomed by action and sports photographers.

Olympus is expected to hold a major product launch event before the start of the CP+ 2015 event. The company has already sent press invitations to a show taking place on February 5, while CP+ 2015 will open its doors on February 12.

During the product launch event, the company will announce the E-M5II, which will become the E-M5 replacement. The photos of the Micro Four Thirds camera have already been leaked along with a detailed specifications list. However, another source is back with more information, which reveals the fact that the camera will be appreciated by action and sports photographers.

Recently, the leaked Olympus OM-D E-M5II specs has revealed the fact that the mirrorless camera will be weathersealed, just like the flagship OM-D E-M1. The E-M5II will be dustproof, freezeproof, and resistant to water droplets, thus being perfect for outdoor and wildlife photographers.

Nevertheless, it appears that the E-M5 successor will come packed with a maximum shutter speed of 1/16000th of a second and a continuous shooting mode of up to 10fps. This means that action and sports photographers will be more than prepared to shoot fast-moving objects using the E-M5II.

Moreover, the new OM-D-series camera will come packed with an improved image stabilization system that is even better than the one found in the E-M1. It will offer 5-stops of compensation and some interesting tools for videographers.

The camera will weigh about 420 grams. This weight probably includes the battery and the media card. For comparison, the E-M5 weighs 425 grams with the battery and media card.

Olympus E-M5II price details for European markets revealed

The price of the Olympus E-M5II has been leaked as well. Previously, it has been said that the mirrorless camera will retail for about £900 in the UK. Now it is being said that the device will cost €1,099 in European markets.

For the time being, the US market price remains unknown. There are some speculations that it will cost somewhere between $900 and $1,100, but you should wait for the official announcement before drawing any conclusions.

At this point, the Olympus E-M5 is available for only $599 at Amazon, which is a really good price.
