Olympus OM-D EM-5 Mk II Rumor

The new Olympus OM-D EM-5 that started the revolution of MFT based DSLR is about to be upgrade in a big way.  It is currently rumored to be unveiled in the first week of February 2015 with features that will surely put it in the top position as the king of compact mirrorless DSLR.

The biggest new features of OM-D EM-5 will be "sensor shift" shooting mode, effectively making it a 40 MP camera.  Such a technology is not the first in the industry as it was used in Hasselblad H5D-200c MC.

If the rumor turns out to be true, we don't know for sure whether Olympus' technology would be identical to Hasselblad's.

Early reports also suggest that the sensor will be equipped with phase detection auto focus and capable of 4K video recording.

Well, I'm still hoping Olympus will release firmware update to enable 4K video for OM-D E-M1.  At lease Olympus is moving in the right direction if the rumor is true.  Olympus is known to be biased toward producing great still images in their camera, but 4K video is really a must feature for high end models in order to stay competitive in today's market.
