(FT4) UPDATED: More E-5 specs….

UPDATE: Zone-10 can’t believe this specs are true. They made a list with all rumored special features of the new E-5. But that’s only speculation. The specs below are probably correct :(

New rumors about the E-5 do confirm the specs we posted few days ago:

  • Magnesium weather proof  body
  • Dual memory card slots (not sure if CF+SD or 2xSD)
  • 12MP sensor
  • 11 AF points
  • 6fps
  • Image stabilization
  • Anti-dust feature
  • Some kind of a rotating/tilting LCD display
  • HD video @ 720P with 30fps
  • Built-in wireless flash
  • 100% viewfinder coverage

The latest 24hours have been very busy. I am currently on a trip at the sea and it’s an adventure posting on 43rumors from here. I didn’t expect Olympus to announce new stuff tomorrow. There will be two different announcements on August 31 and September 14. It’s time for a resume of all latest rumors:
