Olympus E-M5 Mark III in Jan / Feb 2019

As you have seen Olympus skipped the scheduled announcement date of Olympus E-M5 Mark II camera which was Jan / Feb 2018. Now we are expecting the arrival of Olympus E-M5 Mark III camera either on Sep 2018, during Photokina event. Since, Photokina is the best place for announcement of Camera, Lenses and camcorders. And even if the Sep 2018 date is missed than for sure E-M5 Mark III will going to arrive on Jan/ Feb of 2019.

We are the first website to publish the rumored specification of the Olympus E-M5 mark III camera. And if we believe it then we will going to see big improvements compared to the existing E-M5 mark II camera. The rumored specification of the camera look similar to E-M1 Mark II. And in the same post that was published on April 30 2018 we have also told that the Olympus E-M5 Mark III camera will going to arrive either at the end of 2018 or maybe in the beginning 2019.

 

Olympus E-M1 Mark III in Sep 2019

Olympus E-M1 Mark III schedule announcement date is September 2019. However, even due to delayed in the announcement of E-M5 Mark III camera, we are expecting the Olympus E-M1 Mark III camera will arrive on time without any delay.

Major Camera Announcement Before Olympics 2020 is expected. Sep 2019 Photokina will be a sweet-spot to introduce flagships by Olympus, Panasonic, Canon and Nikon. –  TNC

But, at the same time their is strong possibility that E-M1 Mark III camera will arrive on schedule time, since we have 2020 Olympics start from July 2019 and prior to that All major DSLR as well as Mirrorless makers will going to announce their flagship DSLR and Mirrorless camera. We are expecting the announcement of Panasonic GH6 [first consumer level 6K camera], Canon 1DX Mark III and Nikon D6 at the end of 2019 or at the beginning months of 2020.

Olympus E-M10 Mark IV on Aug 2020

Scheduled time of Olympus next entry level Mirrorless camera Olympus E-M10 Mark IV, which was expected to be Aug of 2019, but it will be shifted to Aug  of 2020. Since the E-M5 series update is delayed for 1 year. And E-M1 Mark II announcement is expected on Sep of 2019.

Olympus Patent - Advance Image Stabilization System

We have read that Olympus already reached the physical limits of image stabilization by providing the 6 stops of image stabilization in the recently announced Olympus E-M1 Mark II camera. (Olympus E-M1 Mark II do provide 6 Stops of image stabilization when combined with some specific Olympus OIS lenses.)

That is not it that is not the limit because even after that we have seen patents in which Olympus is actively working to improve the image stabilization inside there cameras that is sensor based image stabilization system. Before we begin let me remind you that just few weeks ago we have published a patent that Olympus is working on hybrid image stabilization system that patent was published on January 19, 2017 .

Now I am going to discuss a patent that was published on August 2017 (more fresh then the previous one). So, this is more new and according to the patent it clearly shows that Olympus is working to improve their 5 Axis image stabilization system may be for Olympus E-M1 Mark III. Well we will not getting into the details I am putting the translated text of the patent so you can better understand what it is actually written and if you know Japanese then you can also help us by translating the patent and sending it back to us
