A couple of 43rumors readers linked me to the latest post written by Bradley Cox on the Olympus E community flickr forum. Obviously I cannot guarantee the info he got from his “source” is correct. But if the info is correct than there is a good reason to be excited:
“During the interdiction phase of a workshop I attended the instructor talked about how he was leaving Nikon and going to move to Olympus. He said the Oly rep who had contacted him talked about the next OM D, and that it was a collaboration between Olympus Sony and Fuji and that the was going to have something like 15 stops of latitude and offer much more than anything we have seen to date. He is a well know national photographer. He was excited to see my gear. It left me very excited about whats next. Said it would be out this year.“
I rated this rumor as FT2 because I still didn’t get reliable info from trusted sources about the possible dynamic range of the new OMD. All I know is that the camera is definitely not the E-M5 successor and it’s going to be announce din September along other new cameras and lenses!
