(FT4) New Olympus E-3 and E-30 successor (one single camera?)


Dear readers,
since over one month I am continually receiving rumors about the E-3 and E-30 successor. At the beginning I thought that there would be two new cameras but now I “believe” that the E-30 and the E-3 are probably going to be replaced by one single new FourThirds camera!

I have only few informations:
– The new FourThirds camera is going to be unveiled in March (late March?).
– Do not expect little upgrades over the E-30/E-3…do expect more! The new camera should have some kind of “special” sensor.
– It will not be a mirrorless camera
Keep sending your “rumors” at or use the contact form on the right sidebar!

Thanks to all the people who sent me pieces and pieces of informations!
