The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II Limited Edition

The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II Limited Edition is a new compact system camera that pays homage to the titanium-clad Olympus OM-3Ti film SLR released in 1994. The Limited Edition titanium beautifully redesigned E-M5 Mark II will be available in a distinctively retro with titanium-tinted body that evokes the golden age of the original Olympus OM series.

In addition to the titanium color, the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II Limited Edition differs from the regular model with a special OM-D-branded leather strap and a premium-stitched leather case for the card. An owner’s card bearing a quote from the legendary OM designer Yoshihisa Maitani. A number between one and 7,000 will appear on the other side of the card as only 7,000 of these cameras are due to be made.

One portable icon deserves another

Although some 20 years have passed since the launch of the OM-3Ti, the OM-D E-M5 Mark II Limited Edition has much in common with its illustrious forebear and not just visually. Both OM-3Ti and The Limited Edition offer serious photographers a more portable with high-grade alternative to bulkier SLRs. The 1980s and 90s cemented the OM series’ reputation for compact and lightweight go-anywhere system cameras, as well as innovations such as the air damper that muffled the shock of mirror movement or the multi-spot metering mechanism beloved of professional owners of the OM-4.

The E-M5 Mark II continues that tradition with its minimal dimensions, rugged build, and the world’s most powerful (Olympus’ in-house test conditions, steps according to CIPA testing conditions.) 5-axis Image Stabilization system. This as the TIPA award jury pointed out – makes it ideal for high-speed, spontaneous photography on the move (“a breakthrough technology that handles virtually every shooting situation.”).

A titan in titanium

Beginning with the launch of the OM-1 in 1973, Yoshihisa Maitani’s breakthrough series married form with professional-grade function, and the OM-3Ti was the beautiful – practical – culmination of this design philosophy. With its titanium plates were not just lighter than aluminium. They were also more resistant to corrosion and heat and fully six times more robust. The OM-3Ti stood out from every other camera available at that time.

The OM-D E-M5 Mark II Limited Edition pays homage to this heritage with a striking new color and a number of unmistakable OM design cues. In addition to the familiar, prism mount and low center of gravity, angular OM contours, the new camera woos collectors with its distinctive titanium-style finish as well as the exquisitely knurled dials and shutter release. From the perspective of its owner, the controls ooze state-of-the-art optical precision.
