The surprising thing to me from this interview is that they seem to imply that the only difference between the E-M1ii/E-M5iii IBIS and the E-M1X IBIS is the new gyro sensors and some software updates. If that's true, I wonder why they wouldn't bring the new gyro sensor and algorithm to the E-M5iii.

Cost. Olympus said that for the X they worked with Epson to get higher performing gyros and actuators. My guess is that this means that they have batches tested and buy the top 10% or so. Lower yield -> higher cost -> only goes in the expensive camera.

God loves the noise just as much as the signal.
