The E-P2 is going to be announced tomorrow in Asia, it will be very early in the morning in Europe and night in US.
Two more thing…
Olympus will probably release a new lens roadmap.
The japanese leaked specs are not exact.
“The big Olympus news on October 31st was about a new ambassadors for Olympus in Holland – I just learned that today. The announcement of the E-P2 is still expected in the next few days – latest by next week. There is also a possibility for a new tele zoom (40-150) and a macro lens.”
Two of our trusted sources told us that this specs are close to the real ones but not the exact E-P2 specs! We hope to get the real E-P2 specs soon!
Just received this from an anonymous sender. I don’t know if this specs are true. He sent me an image of the specs in japanese. Can you help me to translate it?
UPDATE: No one else than Thom Hogan helped me “third item is 3″ 460k dot LCD
seventh item is 3.5-4 fps shooting rate” Thanks!
Also John helped us:
“I think the only improvements are:
1) True Pic V+
2) External EVF 1.44mp
3) 3″ LCD 460k
4) 1080p 30fps
5) Flash Sync 1/180 or 1/250 and below
6) 3.5 ~ 4 fps shooting speed”
Radu added following information:
“Also, it looks it works with Oly RM-1 IR remote control instead of the cable RM-UC-1, and the flash sync has an 1/250s option.”

(FT4) Our sources told us that Olympus is planning the release of new MicroFourThirds lenses for very early 2010 (January-February).
(FT3) A new source told us more: “…Oly is planning to pretty much follow Panasonic, offering at least an ultra wide (7-14 or 9-18), a fast prime (competing with the pana 20 1.7) and a tele/macro prime.” I had a smalltalk with the new source and I trust him.
