Also regarding hi res mode, does this give you a hi res RAW file, or is the hi res jpeg only?
The is what the the E-M1 II has.

New TruePic VIII image processor

The new TruePic VIII image processor packs two types of quad cores on one chip, one dedicated to image processing, and the other for camera control and computation processes. A state-of-the-art process, which carries out parallel processing of sensor reading, AF processing, and image processing speeds up the camera and reduces power consumption.





And this is the E-M1X. (double the processing power of the E-M1 II).

Dual TruePic VIII Processors

The dual high-speed TruePic VIII image processors in this model allow for cutting-edge functionality, reduced the start-up time, faster recovery from sleep, enables dual UHS-II compatible card slots, Intelligent Subject Detect AF, Handheld High Res Shot, and Live ND. The optical performance of attached lenses are also maximised for natural depiction and high-definition imaging.



JPEG & RAWs (normal & HiRes)

Should be:

'hi res raw file, or is the hi res JPEG only'

Sorry, I couldn't pass that one up.
I too have a special edition beard these days.

It is complimented by a special, highly reflective surface on my top plate. That needs regular attention though to keep the shine at optimum levels.

You get the standard raw, named .ORI and the hires raw, named .ORF, and the JPG. But you choose all this in the menu, after selecting hires mode. See the manual.
