Important: I didn’t receive any indication from trusted sources that an Olympus fullframe camera is going to be announced. The following rumor is at 99% false! I report it here because that rumor is creating a lot of “buzz” on the web. So read it just for fun!
The “rumor” has been started by Milsooper on dpreview forum. He says that a new Olympus FF camera is going to be announced soon:
“An Olympus full frame 35 mm body that can use the 4/3 lenses.
A nice weather resistant magnesium alloy frame.
24.2 megapixel Kodak sensor and processors.
OM lens support.
Two new features yet to be revealed.”
He also says that this picture has been taken with the new Olympus FF camera: http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/1589237678/photos/492988/sedona10-111-1
And he has taken similar pictures with the E-3: http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/1589237678/photos/492914/sedona6-107
and the Sony A850: http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/1589237678/photos/492928/sedona4-102
I repeat, we don’t know anything about a Olympus FF camera. But you know, we are a rumors website and sometimes we like to dream :)
