    Default Pen F

    Oly have launched the Pen F with a 20mp sensor.
    Could the OMD-EM1 mkII with the same mp sensor be arriving soon?
    It would have to support phase detection af though.

    I like the fact that it is a Pen series model that FINALLY has a built-in viewfinder (as God intended cameras to have! )

    I was thinking the same. Maybe not soon, though. It will cost more than this one.

    I suspect that the E-M1II will be released september at the PhotoKina show. If it is released before that; I think it will be because Olympus has something even grander that they want to present there.

    Robin Wong has a review of the Pen F here: http://robinwong.blogspot.com/2016/0...ew-part-1.html

    His subjective opinion was that the 20MP sensor is not a big improvement over the E-M1 sensor.

    Tom, I think you left the critical number off your post - E-M?II. You mean the E-M1II?

    A very nice camera if you don't own 4/3 lenses.
