We are finally get a first glimpse on this new Olympus OMD camera that will be launched in January. From what we learned it’s clear this camera will feature the best tech available to Olympus. The goal is to make a High End MFT camera that can compete in the Sports Realm. That’s why the camera has a built-in grip. And this isn’t a rumor but a fact:
Today Olympus registered a new camera model with built-in grip at Fccid.io. And the agency reports the exact size of the camera: E-M1X is 144.37 x 146.765 x 75.345mm. This is close to the size of the two Canon-Nikon sports cameras:
Canon EOS-1D X Mark II: 158.0 x 167.6 x 82.6mm or
Nikon D5: 160.0 x 158.5 x 92.0mm.
Sounds intruiging. Can this camera bring back enthusiasm in the MFT system? Time will tell…
