The Olympus E-M10 Mark III camera has a 16MP sensor, not 20MP as some reports suggested

The Olympus E-M10 Mark III specifications leaked online. As I already reported, the new MFT model will have 4k video and will be released by the end of the year. The rumors about a 20MP sensor that have been repeated by some websites for months were completely wrong - the E-M10 Mark III will have a 16MP sensor:
