(FT4) Finally some rumor from reliable sources!


I am just arrived at the Munich airport and I checked my mails. Finally after days of struggling with uncertain rumors I have some very reliable rumor from my “old” trusted sources :). Just few informations but at least they are FT4 :)

The teaser camera is definitely a MicroFourThirds camera (plastique body)
Also the E-5 is going to be announced veeeeeery soon.
No Mft prime lenses from Olympus yet, they will come in Q3! We will see the previousely announced zooms instead.

That’s it for now. I received some more informations but I want to double check them before to post it!

Cheers from Munich

P.S.: Sorry for beeing so hurry but I am writing you from my iPhone.

    A plastic body? So kind of like the EP1/2 then :)

  • BartmanSA

    Great work. Keep it up.

  • tnx, thumps up!

  • Marc

    Welcome to Germany and have a good stay!

  • Chris Polis

    Plastique as in explosive? Novel idea I suppose – certainly would be innovative!

    Plastic is ok. Not everyone will pay premium for magnesium alloy.

    “You can’t hide innovation.”

    Yes, yes you can. That’s why we’re still living in the (end of the) petroleum age.

    i’m a customer for both. the entry-level mft for my wife, and have been waiting for the E-5 for my upgrade
    (and i really hope its an upgraded, weatherproofed E-30)

  • Dawg, where are the LX3 successor rumors??? Is it still a go for the 1st week Feb. or would it get pushed to later in the year? Any info about any other large-sensored fixed-lens compacts?

  • Wow, sure am looking forward to this :) Exciting! Please just make the AF superfast, thats all I need..

    Thanks for a great site!

  • dougster

  • Rocky

  • Jay
