This comes from the OM-1 beta tester who earlier mentioned that the body coming in September was an E-M1X replacement. This source and 43rumors are as far apart are you could be on a rumor. We will soon see who was correct


Def. watching with great interest to see if the beta tester was correct about OM-5 = E-M1x successor. That will establish track record.

Odds are, he's completely wrong.

Why would the EM1X successor have obviously weaker specs than the OM1? Why make this weaker camera huge just so it sells even worse than the original EM1x did?

You are assuming that the specs from 43rumors are accurate That site has not had a good track record with early spec rumors. We will see next month.

But the very name OM5 also strongly suggests a lower end model.
