solarider: I look forward to the first impressions and full review!

After the EM 1 II there should be one more version of the mark II (The EM 1 Mark II-II, before releasing the EM 1-II-III.

@SeeRoy I love the EM5. It is a piece of Oly history. Fantastic Camera once you figured out the menu labyrinth and how to best hold it. The images have a special something not seen with the GH3, or GH4. Even the video was better, once it's use was mastered. Intangible but different

This mark ll camera is what I've been waiting for. The bit rate of the 4k makes me very happy.

sknai16: I tried the EM1 and have come back to Nikon at great cost. The sensor size is too small for large prints and the AF system is far from equivalent to the D500 or any Nikon DSLR for that sake. I did good tracking with the D300S and the D700 and never felt I had to go to the D4 or D5.
Anther issue for me is pricing. The new Olympus pro lenses are all more than a 1000 dollars. I can buy Sigma ART lenses opening at f1.4 for much less.
The lenses are also getting heavier and larger and all in all, I feel that Nikon or Canon are still the best bet for anyone who prints large, shoots wildlife or needs AF tracking for some reason..
It is a lovely camera, but so are all modern cameras and I'll carry the extra pound.

Watch the Photokina Olympus presentation. Quite amazing.

Olympus keeps marching ahead. They have a good vision and (now after some corporate corruptions some years ago) a good, ethic.

Imagine how they follow up to the upcoming OMD-1 mk ll a few years from now? These new Zuiko pro lenses will always hold their value. I want them all, now that I see the direction they are taking, improving video on the mark ll. Wait till they figure out out to turn m43 into FF and large format, in the camera and set new ISO records. If anyone can do this it will be Oly, because of their fanatical competitive spirit. (Sony too).

In reply to:

Clint Dunn: What a great camera with such a small sensor. Unfortunately Olympus will never be more then a niche market. Imagine the volume they would sell if this camera had all the same features and a FF sensor?!
Queue the defensive comments from Olympus owners...

There are ample comparisons between m43 vs FF online. The bigger is better is a fallacy unless you are printing out gigantic posters.

Look at side by side comparisons where it is impossible to guess which is which.

Be spectacular if Olympus would pair this with a PRO lens of your choice, for half price, as kit lens. I'll need the 300mm.

The point is it's not funny how idiotic people get. It's like laughing at trainwreaks or zika babies.

@Saurat If this is "comic" then you are starving for humor.

If we are too enthusiastic they will price it too high. So lets be careful.

rialcnis: Canon, the company, turned me off years ago, mostly because of terrible photo printer support. People that push Canon as the best cameras often have a smugness that annoys me. Nikon too has annoyed me. In still film cameras I was 100% OM.

IT's funny how smug my late father in law, super engineer, art photographer, painter, was, about Olympus, who gifted me an OM 1 on release and brainwashed me against Canon, Nikon, etc. (I just wish OLYMPUS would do a better than Sony a7sIi low light, full frame, 4K, OMD markxxx.)

So i'm glad the rolling shutter is bad.:)

Scientists have recently discovered Canon, Nikon, Fuji, Olympus, Sony, Panasonic, Arri, Red, etc. gene markers that predisposes, various brand loyalties. It's a throwback to varying ant and termites species, to invade and infest, different woods, soil and foliage

Japanese "we are superior," marketing can be traced back to ancient, warring Samurai/Shogunate clans. Funny how that works. Today the outsourcing to non-Japan countries, is considered a betrayal, by Japanese traditionalists.

@temporal "OMs were toys, " "Inferiority complex," Ha ha. My late father in law used to design optical systems for medical and military and practically invented Macro photography and was the most technical, fanatical, lens, genius. (Kubrick had called him for advice) He could talk for endless hours about how superior the Zuiko lenses were. He despised Canon and Nikon.

@knappe duivel. "More than a lifestyle," alot of it is years of marketing. Alot of non-technical people pass on the "we are superior" with Canon, Sort of like the Apple brainwashing that seems to effect lots on young people.

When it is available for 129.95 it will mean true holographic storage is around the corner.

PanchoVilla: British period drama? I think I'd rather read endless debates about mirrorless versus DSLRs than subject myself to a self-induced coma!

Barry Lyndon was originally a fictional novel by William Thackeray.
