Olympus OM-D E-M1X - Countdown to release

Right after the first teaser, Olympus continues to follow Nikon’s and Canon’s playbook and setup a countdown timer for the official presentation of the OM-D E-M1X:

Olympus OM-D E-M1X Countdown

It’s likely that more snippets, images and videos will be released over the coming weeks which we will dutifully report. Recall that the official presentation of the OM-D E-M1X will take place on January 24, 2019.

Olympus OM-D E-M1X – Sepcifications and Price

To wet your appetite, here are the rumored specs of the OM-D E-M1X (some of which may classify as wishful thinking…):

  • Sensor: Micro Four Thirds (crop: 2x)
  • Resolution: c. 20 Megapixel
  • Sequential shooting: up to 18 FPS with AF-C
  • Processor: TruePic VIII (probably two of those)
  • Stabilizer / IBIS: Yes, up to 7.5 LW effectivity
  • Video: Unknown, but 4K 30p is safe to assume
  • Price: around $3.000 (body only)

Most people will swallow hard with this last item. Currently the most expensive MFT camera would be Panasonic’s GH5s (around $2.300). The E-M1X is aimed squarely at action, sports and wildlife photogs who have plenty of full frame cameras to choose from.

Compare the sensor sizes (just to rub it in…):

Sensor Formats - Full Frame vs MFT

Also, the longest lens for MFT is Olympus’s own Zuiko 300mm F4 Pro (around $2.500). If you need more reach, a TC is the only way to go.
