"OLYMPUS OM-D E-M5 Mark II" receives
Japan Camera Grand Prix 2015 Editors Award
Olympus Corporation (President: Hiroyuki Sasa) is pleased to announce that the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II, a Compact System Camera, has received the "Editors Award" of Japan Camera Grand Prix 2015 by the Japan Camera Journal Press Club.
The judging committee said, "To become the right product as the second-generation model of the OLYMPUS OM-D E-M5, this camera is designed for focusing in high quality close to that of the company's flagship, the E-M1, in terms of both functionality and operability. The 5-axis image stabilization and 40MP high resolution mode result in the possibility of high resolution image with a compact lens interchanging camera. In addition, the camera responds to users' needs with features including dust-and-splash proof structure and low-temperature capability to minus 10 degrees C."
