In addition to a barrage of other products launched earlier today, Olympus has also unveiled a limited edition Silver OM-D E-M1 Mark II to commemorate Olympus' 100th anniversary.

As tends to be the case with many limited edition cameras, nothing changes on the inside. This special edition OM-D E-M1 Mark II still features the same 20.4-megapixel MOS sensor with Olympus' TruePic VIII image processor to power it all. Also identical to the standard version is the 5-axis image stabilization.

The special edition OM-D E-M1 Mark II will be limited to only 2,000 units worldwide and is set to ship in February 2019 for $1.699.99 USD and $1,999.99 CAD.

Furthermore, the 20.4 Megapixel Live MOS sensor with 121 points of cross-type on-chip phase detection improves resolution without the need for a low-pass filter. This synergy maintains the full 20.4 Megapixel image while offering up to 18 fps high-speed sequential shooting performance in AF/AE tracking. It also enhances gradation through pixel characteristic improvement for a wide dynamic range that rivals that of cameras with larger sized APS-C sensors. Pro Capture Mode is also included and allows lag-free shooting of split-second moments as full resolution images, attaining both high-speed and excellent image quality.

In-Body 5-Axis Image Stabilization

Through an optimized correction algorithm, this model boasts 5.5 shutter speed steps of compensation performance. Furthermore, when combined with an M.Zuiko lens containing in-lens image stabilization2, 5-Axis Sync IS provides up to 6.5 shutter speed steps of compensation performance for hand-held shooting capabilities.

A Compact, Lightweight, Durable System Offering Unparalleled Reliability
The OM-D E-M1 Mark II features sealing throughout the camera for a highly reliable dustproof, splashproof and freezeproof (14°F / -10°C) design so that the camera performs even in the harshest outdoor conditions, such as snow or rain.
