New silver E-M1 Mark II camera
 
Yes, that's right! Read all about it here. *yes https://photorumors.com/2019/01/22/o...a/#more-105556

As there was a rumour of a FW update then that seems like it is coming this way as they did with the Mk I. Get ready for FW update 3.0. ;)

At least the price would have been better than a silver one to come & you'll get the FW update too. :rolleyes:

Now that's a surprise, but not all surprises are good surprises!

Yes, but it seems they are doing the same as they did with the E-M1 & bringing a firmware (Version 2.0) update with it. Interestingly the Silver E-M1 came 24th September 2014.

Will it have any titanium in it, or is it simply a 'titanium like' finish?

'Titanium' is a current buzz word ('Wow - titanium, it must be good!')

There's a Ford Focus Titanium - I don't suppose it's got a gram of the metal in it!

(The titanium sheet I've met was fearsomely difficult to bend and shape! I've never tried machining it.)

I used a titanium to make chainplates for my old boat. (Chainplates connect the mast stays to the GRP hull.)

It was surprising easy to drill is my only comment.*yes

Actually, I don't know where PhotoRumors got that titanium idea from because officially it's "Silver".

I have 20cm of titanium in my back so perhaps I should get one to help my back....

I've been waiting for the silver version (currently have the silver EM1) and now it's here I'm not sure I like it :-/

I noticed Wilkinson Cameras have it advertised on pre-order for 150 more than a black body, plus no min 200 for PE (which could be worth a further 150'ish if buying the likes of an early Pen body from ebay). And no body + lens deal savings either.

Really done on the cheap, just a paint job with the dials all still black. I much prefer the black body.

I agree, I'm a bit disappointed tbh. Think I'll end up getting black now :)

Really just paint?
My E-M10ii is silver and it has a couple of scratches in the EVF housing. It's metal so they're not that obvious. I prefer the silver/black bodies over pure black but it's pretty marginal :)
