The first image of Olympus’ upcoming OM-D Micro Four Thirds camera has leaked. The OM-D camera is expected to be Olympus’ first digital shooter to join its flagship OM series that’s turning 40 years old this year. The image only shows part of the camera, but does at least reveal a well-built high quality finish.
The OM-D is expected to feature a magnesium, weather-sealed body that weighs 373 grams for just te body. It will sport a 16-megapixel sensor optimized for High Dynamic Range, FAST AF, 3D tracking, and a five-axis image stabilizer inside the body. It offers ISO options of 200 up to 25,600, a built-in digital viewfinder with 1.44 million dots resolution, and a 3-inch 610,000 pixel OLED tilting preview screen.
The camera will likely be unveiled at Olympus’ February 8 press event. Olympus recently trademarked the OM-D name and launched an ad campaign highlighting the letters “O” and “M.” The company also has placed a “coming soon” teaser on its website.
