Back in January 2014, Olympus expanded its OM-D mirrorless camera lineup by introducing the affordable E-M10, touted as “the OM-D for all.” By eschewing weather-sealing and some other features, Olympus was able to shave hundreds of dollars off the price tag. Now, as the original E-M10 nears its 2nd birthday, Olympus is ready to announce its successor, the E-M10 Mark II.
Digicam-info just published the first leaked photos of the upcoming camera. It will reportedly also be available in silver and black, and will feature a redesigned physical interface and grip.
Here’s a comparison between the E-M10 Mark II with its predecessor:
We see that the dials on the top of the camera will be thicker and chrome colored. The angle on the grip is also slightly different.
Olympus is moving all three dials on the top of the camera to the right side and replacing the one on the left with an on/off switch and what appears to be a function button.
No word yet on the specs of the new camera, but the price should be much lower than the $1,100 it costs to buy the new OM-D E-M5 Mark II.
