Main Features - Details
1. Titanium color reminiscent of the OM-3T/Ti
Since the OM-1 went on sale in 1973, the OM film camera series has pursued the pinnacle of mobility and reliability in its compact, lightweight form. The OM-3, which went on sale in 1984, strongly represented those fundamental concepts, and the titanium OM-3T/Ti added in 1994 was the symbol of those ideals.
Adding a titanium color reminiscent of the OM-3T/Ti to the OM-D E-M5 Mark II, a core model of the digital era that heavily borrows from the OM design of the film camera, shows the designers' passion to symbolically express the arrival of a new age in the OM-D series in the OM-D E-M5 Mark II design. Complex color adjustments were carried out numerous times to recreate the sought-after titanium color of the OM-3T/Ti. The OM-D E-M5 Mark II Limited Edition is a special camera that embodies the spirit of the OM series while carving out its own new legend.
2. A premium leather strap, leather card case and owner's card, enhance the value of this special camera
Even the accessories for this OM-D E-M5 Mark II Limited Edition Kit are special, further enhancing the value of this camera.

Finally, an owner's card numbered from1 to 7,000 authenticating that this is one of 7,000 sets and the words from Yoshihisa Maitani, father of the legendary OM series are included on the back of the owner's card. The OM-D E-M5 Mark II Limited Edition Kit is a truly special OM-D E-M5 Mark II that is sure to bring pride and happiness to those who are able to get their hands on one.
