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!

(FT2) Letsgodigital says Kodak could join the MicroFourThirds alliance.

Letsgodigital writes: “It is a known fact that Kodak belongs to the Four Thirds organization, but whether we can actually expect a Kodak Micro Four Thirds camera, remains to be seen.

To be honest we havn’t received any rumors about Kodak joining MFT.
