After debuting the OM-D E-M1 Mark II back at Photokina 2016, Olympus has finally revealed a price and release date for the high-speed mirrorless camera.
If you’re looking to pick up just the body, you’re going to have to shell out £1,849.99, but if you’re dismayed at the price, the good news is you haven’t got long to wait until you can part with your cash.
The E-M1 Mark II will be available from December, when you’ll also have the option of buying it with the M.ZUIKO Digital ED 12-40mm 1:2:8 Pro lens for £2,399.99.

Olympus says its new mirrorless “meets the demands of serious enthusiasts in every photography field and serves professionals in wildlife, documentary and travel with its high-speed performance, mobility and image quality.”
The camera is also the fastest in its category, allowing for top quality sequential shooting performance, along with a new ultra-fast autofocus system.
It’s also compatible with the company’s range of professional-grade Micro Four Thirds lenses and accessories, including an all new HLD-9 battery grip.
The HLD-9 not only hosts an additional battery to deliver up to 880 shots, but also comes in an ergonomic design with a dedicated arrow pad offering the same handling both horizontally and vertically.
Olympus has also introduced a new housing for shooting down to 60 metres underwater, which will work with the OM-D E-M1 Mark II.
If you do decide to pick up the company’s latest mirrorless offering, you can expect it to come with a six-month warranty extension when you register via the MyOlympus platform.
