Re: Confirmed: Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II Will Start Shipping in Early December

If the prices are as high as the rumours then like Ed I'm out and likely to wait quite a while before upgrading, even though Olympus have added the one thing I wanted them to in a new model (cross type af sensors).
Pretty much exactly my position too Phill. The Mk I still does most of what I need very well, so the need to upgrade is less than when the E-M1 first appeared. It was a pretty big improvement over the E-M5. The E-M1 II is obviously a big jump over the E-M1 I, but mostly focusing on speed which is not my priority. Better PDAF accuracy and the high-res mode would be nice though.
