Share

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

UPDATED-> Fuji employees denies Fuji making m43 camera.

I received an email from an anonymous sender. He had a small talk with a Fuji employee and the Fuji man denied that they will release a m43 camera soon.
I haven’t classified this as rumor. Fuji employee will never tell you when and if a new camera is coming!

I post you the email text:
I was just at the Henry’s photographic show in Toronto today and was speaking with one of the employees at the Fuji booth. I asked him about Fuji making a m43 camera and he said that they are part of the consortium (which we already know), but he said that there is no product ready or even near ready at this time. Does not sound like Fuji will have anything soon for m43; assuming his info. is correct.

I also spoke with someone at the Sony booth and they said that a major announcement to the product line will be made in 3 months. They would not confirm or deny if it would be a mirrorless, interchangable lens camera.

Thanks anonymous sender!

UPDATE: Our trusted sources still do confirm Fuji will join MicroFourThirds (probably with the release of a new camera by early 2010).

Samsung NX camera shown again!

Since almost one year we are waiting for the Samsnug NX System which is aimed to compete against the MicroFourThirds system. The NX camera has now been spotted in Korea:
1255615010_SDC10135
1255615011_SDC10140

We have no specs about that camera but the lenses probably have IS options (you can see the covered part in the picture)
