(FT4) New Olympus MicroFourThirds lenses in January/February


(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.

(FT5) UPDATED -> Olympus Hong Kong will show a new M43 product in Hong Kong on 10 Nov.

Here the english google translation of the official Olympus presentation:

November 10 2009: Olympus to Release New Pen

Olympus Hong Kong China Limited will hold a conference on Tuesday November 10 2009 at the Pearl Hall of the Hong Kong Eaton Hotel on Olympus’ new Micro FourThirds Pen single-lens digital camera.

The Olympus Pen single-lens digital camera represents a breakthrough from traditional design concepts, removing the reflex mirror and pentaprism and in so doing, creating a more compact footprint not unlike a digital compact camera but with DSLR-type image quality.

Olympus has now improved autofocusing, resulting in faster performance with higher level of accuracy. What we currently have is a new revolutionary digital age combining 100% digital in the imitable style of a classic film-based camera body. And with that, we present a more professional version of the Olympus Pen single-lens digital camera that will be available for members of the media to try out.

We therefore invite you to send your reporters and photographers to attend our conference. The details of this conference are as follows:

Date: Tuesday, November 10 2009

Time: 2:30pm to 5:00pm

Location: Eaton Hotel (Pearl Hall, 2nd Floor), 380 Nathan Road, Kowloon, Hong Kong

Invitation for Members of the Press Only

UPDATE: One more invitation has been leaked in malaysia:

Rumors summary

Good morning!

In the last weeks we posted many rumors and we thought this summmary would help you a little bit to remember what’s going on. This summary includes rumors from our trusted sources only!

As you may have noticed there was no Olympus October 31 announcement. Our latest rumor has become true. Anyway on Thursday November 5 (or Friday 6) Olympus will probably unveil the Olympus E-P2. The camera should become available after Christmas. We still are not certain if it will use the new Epson EVF. It is very likely that the E-P1 will experiences some kind of price drop. In the meanwhile Olympus officially told us that there will be no E-3 successor soon. The E-3 successor should definitely come in 2010.

Panasonic next lenses are expected to be unveiled early 2010.

Fuji will probably unveil their MicroFourThirds camera by early 2010. Will they use the new organic sensor? Not yet we believe.

MicroFourThirds competition (Ricoh and Samsung)
Ricoh will be the first to unveil a MicroFourThirds competitor on mid November and Samsung NX camera will be announced on December 10.

all the rest
There is a small chance to see Samyang lenses for FourThirds mount.

Have a nice day!
