The upcoming OM SYSTEM OM-5 mirrorless camera will be priced around $1599. This is not the final pricing yet, but OM Digital has told retailers that it could be this price.
In addition, a new OM SYSTEM lens will come along with this OM-5 mirrorless camera.
OM SYSTEM OM-5 Rumored Specifications:
- 20MP Stacked BSI Live MOS MFT Sensor (the same as OM-1)
- 15 fps high-speed continuous shooting
- Single card slot design
- 3.6mp EVF
- AI artificial intelligence detection auto focus
- The same BLX-1 battery as the OM-1
- Price around $1,599
- Announcement in late October
- Shipping will start in November 2022
The Olympus E-M5 Mark III retails for around $1199 in North America (current retail price is $999), so if the OM-5 $1599 rumors are true, the OM-5 will be significantly more expensive than the E-M5 Mark III. Considering the OM-5 uses the same stacked sensor as the OM-1, $1599 seems reasonable (the OM-1 retails for $2199).
