More megapixels, same sensor

Olympus is pushing the envelope in high megapixel photography by incorporating some innovation from Hasselblad’s multi-shot cameras. The successor to the E-M5 code named E-M5 Mark II will use pixel shifting technology and multiple shot merging to eek out 40mp from a micro 4/3 sensor. There is some question whether hand held low light or slow shutter images will be affected by the change in technology. Action shooters will most likely be disappointed with the lack of high megapixel photography for fast moving objects.
