According to Setsuya Kataoka at Olympus the EM-5 II has a new sensor! Here is an interview in the Swedish magazine Fotosidan: http://www.fotosidan.se/cldoc/olympus-chef-berattar-om-kommande-produkter.htm They have requested lots of things to the sensor manufacturer (Sony?) but don't always get what they want. Things they want in the future: Global shutter Higher dynamic range Higher resolution Atm they are debating if they will make a fast super tele or a somewhat slower super tele zoom. After the Pro- series is complete they want to make more specialised lenses like e.g. super fast lenses but probably not tilt-shift lenses. They are looking to make a feature that will facilitate astro photography. No details but mention that Pentax has such a function. Camera and lens sales are dropping and they can't afford to produce niche products.
