There are load of rumors floating around right now that both a High End OMD camera may be coming and that it may cost you quite the pretty penny. According to M43Blog, whatever this camera may be will cost around $1,500 and it will be announced in September. The camera is bound to incorporate lots of the improvements made in the Olympus EP5, which we recently reviewed and loved dearly. For starters, we saw that is had better high ISO results, but it also underexposes.

This body is very likely to incorporate the OMD EM5’s weather sealing, a built in EVF, and perhaps some other changes. What I really wanted was for the system to be able to do second curtain flash sync with Pocket Wizards, and we’re not sure why it can’t. It most likely will also have a fast shutter speed flash sync since the EP5 has 1/320th. Strobists will know that this makes a big difference when shooting.

We’ll just have to wait and see what comes.
