Will this pig fly??? (the E-M1n)

  1. Suppose Olympus take the original E-M1 and then:

1. Put in a new BSI sensor,

2. Update any component and firmware as necessary for that sensor,

3. Leave the tiltng LCD and everything else alone as far as possible,

4. Don't worry about 43 lens support. They can buy the Mark II.

5. Forget ISO 6400 and above, but get real ISO 64 for better IQ in the sensor design if possible, and

6. Work around the clock to get this out quickly. Sell it for $1499, starting from June 2017.

Voilà! The E-M1n, an updated version of the original E-M1 is born using mostly existing components, tooling, packaging, and importantly for existing users, battery pack, accessories.... ! This will satisfy enthusiast photogs doing landscape, and all others who are not upgrading due to the problem with M43's IQ and who may switch to other brands. This can be a stop-gap quick fix, which is necessary to fill the IQ gap until the next major release probably in 2019. In fact it is not a bad idea IMO for Olympus to start a line for stills photogs who have no interest in video or in high performance action cameras,.while also become more attractive to buyers switching from DSLRs.
