Official: Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mirrorless announced!

Olympus just announced its new flagship Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera: The Olympus OM-D E-M1.
It features a 16.3 megapixel Live MOS sensor and TruePic VII image processor to produce high-resolution still imagery and full HD 1080p video. The combination of these two technologies enables a high sensitivity range from ISO 100-25600 and also contributes to a top 1/8000 sec. shutter speed and continuous shooting up to 10 fps.
The sensor also lends itself to an enhanced FAST autofocus system that utilizes dual contrast- and on-chip phase-detection focusing methods to quickly and accurately acquire focus with selectable focus areas for even greater precision.

Product Highlights:
  • 16.3MP Live MOS Sensor
  • TruePic VII Image Processor
  • Micro Four Thirds System
  • FAST Dual Phase- & Contrast-Detection AF
  • Interactive 2,360k-Dot EVF
  • 3.0" 1,037k-Dot Tilting LCD Touchscreen
  • 5-Axis Image Stabilization with IS Auto
  • Built-In Wireless Connectivity
  • 10 fps and 1/8000 sec. Top Shutter Speed
  • Dust/Splash/Freezeproof Mag. Alloy Body

Looks like already in high demand in US. This is a note on Amazon pre-order:

If FF NEX wasn't coming, I'd be very tempted. Looks like a great camera for the m43 crowd.

The E-620 has certainly come a long way!

The weather proofing is pretty impressive...

Both Robin Wong and Ming Thien are claiming at least one stop improvement in high ISO, along with improved IS (1.6 seconds handheld sharp every time with a UWA), and better DR. If true, this puts it on par with most any APS-C sensor out there.

I am bummed that here in the USA you cannot order the E-M1 with the 12-40 lens as a combo/kit ... not yet anyway. The E-M1 puts the last nail DSLR in the coffin, for me.

Definitely nice. The image comparison tool over at Dpreview is interesting.

Definately has that old school film type camera look to it. Results from the original were pretty impressive. Just have to wait and see. Glad to see some camera companies are trying hard with new ideas..... hint ,hint Canon....

If Nikon doesn't come out with the D 400, this may possibly be my next camera. Hate to abandon all my Nikon lenses, but I feel that Nikon has forgotten us.

I can't see why the D400 would/could be a better camera than this, Dave.

Wow, this is super exciting...

Olympus has also announced the development of a matching M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm F2.8 PRO telezoom, which is scheduled to be released by the end of 2014. It's given few further details, but the press images show it'll be a substantially larger lens than Panasonic's Lumix G X Vario 35-100mm F2.8 OIS (as you'd expect). After that, Olympus plans to release a wideangle zoom and super-telephoto prime in this nascent Micro Four Thirds 'PRO' range. It seems that these are unlikely to be direct Micro Four Thirds equivalents of the existing Four Thirds Zuiko Digital ED 7-14mm F4 and Zuiko Digital

Yeah, the 40-150/2.8 would be awesome, and hopefully they have it cost around $1300 or so. I think this lens has made the Panasonic 150/2.8 pretty much DOA, unless they massively reduce the planned price (which they should anyway).

For various reasons. Guess it depends on your needs.

From looks perspective, I preferred the looks of the old em1. But I think ergonomically this is a huge step forward.

Hope those buttons aren't the toy buttons they put on the older camera with a play dough consistency.

Maybe they meant 2013.

Well this means I'm going to hold off on the Fuji 14mm... I would love a MFT version of the Olympus 7-14mm. One of the technically best UWA lenses ever made zoom or prime.

I'm guessing they might need to find some capex for it first (?)
