Sony EVIL plans?

We are still missing some MicroFourThirds competition. Now there is someone who claims to know something about Sonys EVIL System!

“…The evil cameras will be small, high performance; you’ll be able to use older lenses with an adopter. The cameras will be “APSC CMOS size” based. Because of close flange distance, therefore smaller diffraction, lens design will be simpler, smaller, and resolution will be on par with FF. With checkerboard pixel pattern, similar to their ClearVid CMOS pattern, expect 25 MP cameras with 50 MP performance soon, but not initially….”

(FT3) Olympus says there will be no E-3 successor (for now)…

Colorfoto.de asked Olympus Germany if they are planning to soon release the E-3 successor:
…Olympus Germany said to colorfoto.de, there is still no definite timetable for the introduction of a possible follow-up model. For the foreseeable future the E-3 will remain the top model…” and “…In any case, Olympus also confirmed that they will continue to develop the E-system parallel to the Micro Four Thirds system.”

(FT2) E-5 Suisse rumors…

http://www.dslr-forum.de/showthread.php?t=565731&page=5

At a Oly event in Switzerland Olympus employee mentioned the following specs for the  successor: higher resolution, high-resolution display, a new AF module, more FPS, better Viewfinder. The E-3 successor will be settled a class above the E-3 …

Original german text:

Bevor ich das 14-35 2.0 zulegte liess ich mir persönlich im Gespräch an einem Oly-Event hier in der Schweiz versichern, dass ein Nachfolger kommt. Der Herr erwähnte folgendes: höhere Auflösung, hochauflösender Display, neues AF-Modul, mehr FPS, Sucher gleich E-3 oder grösser(!). Näher ins Detail wollte er nicht. Nur so viel, der E-3 Nachfolger wird sich deutlich von allen anderen Oly-Kameras abheben und eine Klasse über der E-3 angesiedelt werden… Ebenso werde sich damit die Rausch- und Dynamikdiskussion erledigt haben!

(FT4) UPDATED-> Olympus next MFT camera to be announced late November/early December

Dear readers,

since I am back from my journey in Asia I am working on collecting new rumors. One month ago photorumors posted a rumor saying the E-P2 could probably be unveiled on October 31. Our sources confirmed us that there will be a second MFT camera from Olympus before the end of the year, but never confirmed the October date (we received two confirmations from unknown sources). Since then we haven’t found any important leaks. And now we only have 10 days left to go. This made us suspicious and finally two very trusted sources told us that the next MicroFourThirds camera is going to be announced later, probably late November early December.

The Rumors summary we posted yesterday remains correct but we have to add the high probable rumor that the next MFT is going to be announced later this year.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: One trusted source wrote us now saying there will be a new Olympus announcement on October 31.

My speculation, E-3 successor late October and MFT camera in December?

cheers

Ale

Rumors summary

Good morning!

Before I start to post new rumors I thought it will be a good idea to list all rumors we recently have collected from trusted sources only!

1)  Olympus will soon announce the next MicroFourThirds camera. It should be very similar to the E-P1. It can use an external viewfinder. No new lenses are expected.

2) The E-3 successor will not be announced now (maybe early 2010). The E-5 will not be an “upgraded” E-3. It will be a completely new camera.

3) Two trusted sources do confirm Fuji is close to announce a new MicroFourThirds camera (expected in early 2010)

4) No more new Panasonic camera/lenses this year

Keep in mind that we are a rumor site, this are not official Olympus-Panasonic-Fuji news. A “rumor” is “a statement or report current without known authority for its truth
