(FT2) Again new chinese rumors (E30 discontinued?)


A new chinese rumors has been posted inside the four-thirds.cn forum:

E30 has been discontinued
Occasionally heard yesterday, the boss, and a one dealer said that this camera has been discontinued … …
Overall, the design of E30 is still good, five major deficiencies:
1, 2.7-inch LCD screen is relatively small, it is best replaced by 3-inch 920,000 pixels
Second, the viewfinder can be made 100 percent coverage in the case of only 98% of the
3, auto white balance is not precise enough to be measured to improve white balance to increase the correction procedure
4, there is no dedicated AF fill light,
5, there is no high-definition video capabilities

Only two days ago we posted another rumor from a chinese forum:

Olympus Sale Rep at a Detroit camera store said that Olympus is currently focusing on m43 and the entry 43. Around mid next year, there will be a replacement for E620. And the replacement for E3 will possible come out next year, likely the second half of the year.

This are very unreliable sources and I do not trust them. Anyway I ask my sources to hlp me a little bit and tell me what’s going on…Thanks!

P.S: Message for “Batman” only (one of our sources): Can you make a fake email account so that I can contact you? Cheers :)

    Funny, I was in a shop here in Taiwan yesturday to buy a E-30. The guy told me he sold the last unit 10 days ago and he cannot get any units from Oly rep in Taiwan for the moment.

    Anyway, it can be that they sell too well so there is no stock available.
