(FT4) Olympus E-3 successor will be unveiled in 2010.

Since weeks we try to get some more infos about the long awaited E-3 successor. We received rumors from here and there and only now we are getting an idea what’s happening. Remember this are rumors only and not official Olympus news. We have no affiliation with Olympus and read our disclaimer at the bottom of the left sidebar if you need to understand what the word “rumors” means.

At the beginning of the year we thought to know the E-3 successor will be unveiled at the end of 2009. It should be an upgraded E-3  camera. Now our sources told us that the huge MicroFourThirds success may has changed their roadmap. Of course there will be an E-3 successor but the release may has been postponed. Probably there will be NO! E-3 successor this year. One new source said “this will be a complete new developed camera“. A trusted source told us that “the E-5 will be a revolutionary camera, not just an E-3 evolution“. Anyway all sources do confirm that Olympus will continue their engadgment in classic FourThirds cameras and lenses.

Some of our sources do believe the E-5 will be a mirrorless High-End camera.

In summary (remember it is a rumor!):

1) there will be no E-3 successor this year

2) The E-5 may be a mirrorless High-End camera

3) classic FourThirds camera and lens development will continue but Olympus priority is to develop new MicroFourThirds products.

4) After the Olympus is ready to announce the second MFT camera on October 31th ;)

Thanks to all our sources for sharing their infos.
