(FT5) Next Olympus MicroFourThirds camera is coming!

43rumors has learned that Olympus will announce at least one product on late October.

(FT4) Some of our sources believe that the next Olympus MicroFourThirds camera is going to be unveiled. The new Olympus MicroFourThirds camera will become a strong Panasonic GF1 competitor (and it will probably not become the Olympus counterpart). That means it will not have a grip, and probably have the same E-P1 design. The specs should be very close to the one seen in the . The viewfinder should be external (similar to the Panasonic DMW-LVF1E).
A E-P2 rumor summary is available here
We still don’t know if Olympus will announce more stuff (lenses or cameras). We are working on it…

As soon as we have more info we will post it on 43rumors!
