    43Rumours published the specs for the new E-M10II.

    Anything that would make you upgrade. I am thinking no as this seems like a minor step in evolution and perhaps a bit disappointing.

    – 16MP Live MOS sensor
    – 5-axis camera shake correction
    – Video Full HD 60p
    – 4K time-lapse movie
    – Continuous shooting 8.5 frames / sec.
    – EVF is 2.36 million dot organic EL
    – LCD monitor three inches tilting
    – built-in Wi-Fi
    – The body is made of metal
    – The color is black and silver
    – Kit, the body only, EZ lens kit, double zoom kit

    I like the new dials. 5-axis IBIS is a big change. The 4K time-lapse movie is kind of cool, I like watching time-lapse videos. Having better video is an improvement. My wife is happy with her current E-M10 so, no, we won't upgrade it. It will be interesting to see how it is priced versus the E-M5 ii, it could turn out to be a bargain.

    I like the 5 axis stabilization and really like the 2.36M viewfinder, but it's not enough to get me to trade in my current E-M10. I'll wait for the E-M1 Mk.2.

    Well ... It starts to be tempting. I have e-p5 and I start to suffer of the size it gets with v-f4, if that thing will have same viewfinder as em5 ii with lower price I might start booking Christmas gift[emoji6]

    Same. I just picked up an E-M10 and want to learn all the ins and outs before I upgrade. I don't do enough video work for that to mean anything to me. The 3-axis IBIS works a treat as is.

    If AF-C is better than before, it's good to upgrade.

    I bet IQ is virtually unchanged - so the bulk of the changes involve handling improvements (for me, anyway - I'm a stills shooter!). Nice, but I like the way the E-M10 handles quite a bit, and I simply don't find it lacking in operation. It's the E-M5 II that actually has *all* the features I'm missing (faster mechanical shutter with no rolling shutter effects, very good weather sealing - and I'd also get the new EVF and better IBIS) - so I'll probably wait till the price of that body comes down a bit further ...

    I'm going to see how the features compare against my E-M5II. If it has 0 shutter shock with low burst, and focusing between shots, like my E-M5II, I'll most likely trade up from my E-M10. The caveat is at what price? If the features are right, but the launch price puts it within a couple of hundred $$ of a used E-M5II, I'll probably pick up a second M5II body to replace my M10 for the field. I'll keep my PL7 for the street.

    Nope, if I upgrade my EM10 to anything it will be a GX8 ;)

    Based on recent history, I would guess that Oly is going to raise the price on the E-M10 II, possibly to $800. They raised the price of the E-PL7 compared to the E-PL5/6 and the E-M5 II compared to the E-M5. I would not be interested in buying one for that price, considering you can get a new E-M5 II with North American warranty for $800 right now on eBay.

    And the E-M10 II looks like a cost-saving move, since they can produce these along side the E-M5 II in their Vietnam factory, and they'll probably share many of the same components (sensor/CPU/IBIS/EVF/dial mechanisms). But given that the current market for the E-M5 II doesn't seem that hot to be selling for $800, I think it will be a tough sell.

    I'm all for these updates. Lots of folks don't have an EM10 yet and they will get a better camera. Nothing here, however. will make me upgrade from my current EM10. Not enough bang for the buck, at least for a stills shooter. I find the 3 axes IBIS to work pretty well.

    No incentive for me to upgrade there. I've only had my EM10 mk1 for a few months and I'm very happy with it so far. I think G5 to GX8 or even 600d to 760d would be more beneficial to me.

    I'll be keeping my mk1 as I bought the 5mkii for the water and dust resistance.
    Had I not needed those features and price dependant I may have bought one so I had two bodies but as an upgrade?? Nope.
    The 5 axis and better evf are nice but not essential and I rarely shoot video.

    I would have love to upgrade my E-M5 to mk2 but the swivel screen ruined that plan so I turned my attention to E-M10II (knowing that it wouldn't be for me either). It's seems that the E-M10II has the good old flip screen ( :love::love::love:), BUT... It' doesn't have weathersealing - as expected. Obviously I would have also liked to have HiRes mode too but it doesn't matter anyway since the weathersealing is missing and it's a "no go" for me. Too bad.

    I guess it takes at least 3 more years till I get to upgrade my camera... IF the E-M5III has a flip screen. Otherwise I'm stuck with the original for life. :coco:

    The 5-axis IBIS and the EVF upgrade are probably the most interesting changes from my point of view. However, I expect the camera to cost considerably more at launch than its predecessor. So while I'm all for having the shiniest gadget etc, I would probably still have gone for the "old" version which gives you more bang for the buck, and spend the leftover money on good lenses.

    The original EM10 (body only) is $499 at Amazon and the international version for $379. That's a lot of camera for the money. The Mk II can now have it's price reset at intro prices ($799?) for a while and still have some nice OMDs out there for <$500.

    No I don't think so. I bought the em10 for its size. If I want more features I'll go em1 or 5ii.

    But I think it's great to keep advancing!
