Olympus has announced the release of the OM-D E-M10 Mark IIIs. If you’re feeling a bit of deja vu, you aren’t alone. While the name looks familiar, you’ll note the addition of an ’s’ on the end compared to its predecessor, the OM-D E-M10 Mark III.
Rather than beating around the bush, we’ll get straight to the point: the OM-D E-M10 Mark IIIs is the OM-D E-M10 Mark III with a new silent shooting mode and a new ‘Instant Film’ art filter mode. Aside from these two small updates, the camera is otherwise unchanged from its predecessor. Absolutely nothing, inside or out, has changed, including the 16 Megapixel sensor, 5-axis sensor-shift IS and 121-point contrast-detection autofocus.
The OM-D E-M10 IIIs comes bundled with the 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 II R lens and will be available in early December for $599 in the U.S. and $799 in Canada.
