Well, we knew it was coming and much of the information was leaked yesterday, but now we officially have the rest of it, along with a price. OM System has now announced the OM-5 mirrorless camera. Styled very much like the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III and coming in at the same $1,199 price point, the new OM-5 essentially carries on that product line. But looking at the specs, it’s difficult to see what’s really changed.
But there have been a couple of changes. For a start, it has the newer generation TruePic IX image processor and brings an extra stop to the sensor-shift image stabilisation. One (the only) standout feature of the OM-5 over the E-M5 Mark III, though, is that it features a built-in 4-stop electronic ND filter for long exposures and video shooters.
