Did anyone actually read the purported news report that led to this belief? A machine translation of Japanese text that says: "Olympus <7733> President Hiroyuki Sasa of two days, to "OM-DE-M5" the latest product of the digital camera type "mirror-less" with no reflector, Sony <6758> clearly that it has adopted the image sensor made of was. The answers to the questions of reporters in the presentation of new products bamboo biological microscope president was held in Tokyo on the same day." In truth, this is so garbled it's meaningless in English. But if there's any logical reading of this gobbledygook, it's that the "biological microscope" introduced the same day as Sasa's press conference has a Sony sensor. The reference to the OM-D is only saying that this microscope is the latest product from the same company that makes the mirrorless OM-DE-M5. For thousand of people to reach the conclusion that the OM-D has a Sony sensor based on this is laughable. Are OM-D owners so desperate to know for sure that it isn't from Panasonic that they'll believe anything they read on the internet that supports that belief? Seriously, it's a great camera, regardless of who makes the sensor. But there's simply no more evidence of who that company is today than there was last month.
