    I wouldn't be surprised if the GH5 is launched around that time as well. With IBIS? And I have promised myself not to buy any more camera bodies this year

    Well Sony manufacturing plants have been damaged in an earthquake recently and Sony has just announced that sensors production will be delayed. This may have an impact on the launch of the new models (about 1-2 months for the sensor production to restart).

    Good point, but I'd have enabled "anti-shock'' ...

    Any rumors yet on whether the E-M1 mkii will still feature on sensor type PDAF sensors?

    Lot of appealing new features if this is true, especially interesting are:

    1) handheld high res mode
    2) improved EVF - hopefully without color cast
    3) better AF system - really great as IMHO the Oly AF was already pretty fast and perfect

    Will become really interesting. Plus the high speed primes - great to be an Oly shooter

    What I would wish for in addition to the E-M1 II is a GH5 with PD AF and IBIS. Those two cameras would probably complement each other perfectly; the Olympus somewhat superior for stills and the Panasonic somewhat superior for video. Time will show
