Olympus_IM002 E-PL8 E-M1 Mark II camera rumors
A new Olympus camera under the code name "IM002” was already registered at the Indonesian Communication Agency and recently also showed up at the Taiwan Radio Certification Authority (NCC). The IM002 camera will use a new BLH-1 battery and a corresponding BCH-1 battery charger according to the filed documents.

IM001 and IM002 are most likely the code names for the already rumored Olympus E-PL8 and Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II cameras.

      The resolution doesn’t bother me, what bothers me is that there’s been no advancements in M43 sensors like there’s been for 1 inch and other sizes.

        That shouldn’t surprise you. Small sensors have bigger yields so they can pack more complicated processes in them.

          Yields have nothing to do with applying technological advancements. Larger sensors get refined as well. Only M43 sensors have not evolved.

  • Aaaargghhh! If the IM002 really is the successor to the E-M1, then the bit about using a different battery and charger is annoying for those of us with existing batteries & chargers.

    Yes, if it is a larger capacity battery providing more ‘on time’ then they should do it.

    No, no-one should expect batteries / chargers not to undergo development and change.

    Still, “phooey”.
