(This is me astonished when I got this news)

From a danish website:
http://zoom.comon.dk/index.php/news/show/id=1111
Translation:
Olympus E-3 is the world’s most weather-resistant DSLR camera. But the camera lags behind some of its competitors.

“Suddenly as an lightning from the clear blue skye, I got a hint from a normal highly credible source.
Olympus has launched the E-30 and E-620. Both cameras with more pixels than the big brother E-3 and with a lot of new features. This could therefore indicate that an successor to the E-3 is underway – a really good bet, would be that it will be launched in June, according to my source!.

So if we now put all the good stuff from Olympus E-30/E-620 into the weather-resistant housing of the E-3, we could get an E-5.

But it does not make it alone if you ask me. There must be both more megapixels in a professional camera and ISO noise needs to be fixed and there must be video in such a camera.
Do Olympus deliver this – an E-5 could very well be a success.”

Do we see the new Olympus model in June?”
