All the camera excitement of 2018 mostly bypassed Olympus, but the venerated camera maker is looking to start 2019 with a bang. It will unveil what looks to be a very fast, rugged sports-oriented camera -- possibly a successor to the OM-D EM-1 Mark II -- on January 24th, 2019. The teaser video shows a pro sports shooter (possibly Olympus ambassador Kelley L. Cox) handling the new model equipped with a 40-150mm f/2.8 zoom and battery grip. While she shoots some water polo and beach volleyball, we see a lot of splashing and sand flying, which points to a pro-oriented, weatherproof camera. The last Olympus O-MD E-M1 Mark II was all about speed, allowing up to 18 fps shooting in continuous autofocus and exposure mode.
