(FT2) UPDATED -> Pentax joining MicroFourThirds?


According to Valentin Sama Pentax-Hoya is considering to join MicroFourThirds. No other details were given.

UPDATE3: RiceHigh explains very well why Pentax will not join MicroFourThirds!.

UPDATE2: Mr Sama got this information from a senior Pentax manager. He also said that maybe the manager referred to the Micro Four Thirds as “System” or “concept”.

UPDATE: Jose told us more about the person Mr.Sama: “Mr Sama is not a photographer but a very well know and respected optics professor at the university and the autor of one of the best spanish photography magazine ever (funding member of european TIPA association BTW) and most importantly (for you), Mr Sama is the one, and only, behind DSLRMagazine website wich you have linked to a few times before.

(FT2) Olympus E-PS1 in June?

I just recieved a rumor from a new source saying that the next Olympus camera will be “again” a PEN. It will be called “E-PS1” and will be available in June. The camera is not a “High-End” model. Such a model is expected to come at photokina or later. The source didn’t gave me any specs.

If some of you can give me some more details please contact me at Thanks!

Reminder: “FT2″  = unreliable rumor from new source.
