Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II Limited Edition Camera
olympus20150519a.jpgOlympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II Limited Edition is a homage to the classic OM-3Ti film camera.

Olympus is pleased to announce a limited edition version of the OM-D E-M5 Mark II camera. The new OM-D E-M5 Mark II Limited Edition model is painted with a unique titanium colour that pays homage to the classic OM-3Ti 35mm SLR film camera. Sold in a kit together with specially designed accessories, a small production of 7,000 kits will be on sale globally from June 2015.

The OM-D E-M5 Mark II, launched in February 2015, is the latest model in the Olympus OM-D interchangeable lens camera series. The design of the E-M5 series within the OM-D ILC system is arguably the most reminiscent of classic “OM System” 35mm film cameras. This limited edition model pays homage to one of the last OM film cameras produced, the 1994 OM-3Ti, by adopting its titanium paint colour.

The complete limited edition set includes the OM-D E-M5 Mark II in titanium colour, a specially-crafted leather strap, and a leather card case containing an owner’s card that is numbered from 1 to 7,000.

FURTHER DETAILS


Titanium colour reminiscent of the OM-3Ti

From the first OM System camera, the OM-1 of 1973, Olympus had pursued the concept of total system mobility, outstanding optical quality and superb reliability in the different OM camera series and Zuiko lenses. The OM-3, which went on sale in 1984, strongly represented those fundamental concepts. The titanium OM-3Ti introduced in 1994, one of the last OM cameras produced, symbolised these ideals. The homage to the this classic camera expresses a ‘new age’ in the OM-D series with the OM-D E-M5 Mark II design.

Complex colour research was carried out in order to recreate the unique titanium colour of the OM-3Ti. The OM-D E-M5 Mark II Limited Edition embodies the spirit of the OM series, whilst carving out its own new legend.

Limited edition set include special accessories for enhanced appeal and owner pride

The specially designed camera strap and matching card case feature high quality stitching and genuine leather, finely balancing colours that match the titanium colour body of the camera. These accessories are finished with the quality that befits a Limited Edition camera set.

An owner’s card numbered from 1 to 7,000 is also included in the set as proof of authenticity. An inspirational quote by Mr Yoshihisa Maitani, the designer of the legendary OM System will be printed on every card.

The OM-D E-M5 Mark II Limited Edition will be available in June.

Recommended retail price for the Limited Edition Kit is $1,899 AUD and $2,199 NZD.

About Olympus

 

In Greek mythology, Mt.Olympus is the home of the twelve supreme gods and goddesses. Olympus was named after this mountain to reflect its strong aspiration to create high quality, world famous products.

"Olympus" has been used as a trademark since the time of Takachiho Seisakusho, the predecessor of Olympus Corporation.

In Japanese mythology, it is said that eight million gods and goddesses live in Takamagahara, the peak of Mt.Takachiho. The name "Olympus" was selected as the trademark because Mt.Olympus, like Mt.Takachiho, was the home of gods and goddesses. This trademark is also imbued with the aspiration of Olympus to illuminate the world with its optical devices, just like Takamagahara brought light to the world.

Takachiho Seisakusho was renamed Takachiho Optical Co., Ltd. in 1942 when optical products became the mainstay of the company. In 1947, the name was changed again to Olympus Optical Co., Ltd. in an attempt to enhance its corporate image.

And in 2003, the company made a fresh start as Olympus Corporation, to show its willingness to establish a dynamic corporate brand by unifying the corporate name and the well-known brand.

In recent years, Olympus Corporation has focused on "Opto-Digital Technology" as its core competence, technological strengths that competitors cannot easily imitate, to maximize corporate value and to become one of the top optical instrument manufactures.
