CP+ 2015 Japan: Highlights for Micro Four Thirds

Well, nothing new out of CP+ 2015 for Micro Four Thirds, as all the big announcements came weeks before the official event. I was hopeful for the Panasonic GX8, but no signs of an announcement yet. One of the coolest things out of CP+ 2015, was an interview with Setsuya Kataoka from Olympus, who mentioned that the 40mp sensor shift technology found in the EM5 Mk II will soon be possible without a tripod. Read the full interview at DPReview.

Here’s a recap of CP+ and the aforementioned announcements:
