If the rumors is correct than Olympus will make my new job as father very difficult :)
I just heard from one source that Olympus will announce “something” in early January. Exactly the time when I am supposed to become father for the first time. That will be a head to head run between my private life and Olympus :)
I may ask some other sources if they got hints about a possible Olympus announcement? It may helps me to organize the work on 43rumors too. My colleagues from the other rumor websites will help me out in the days I will be off.

So what could Olympus announce? I got hints about one new lens. Than there is a rumor about a new OMD model. And we have that completely new PEN. Actually I heard the new PEN is scheduled for a release in February-March. Will try to give you some reliable info as soon as I can. One thing is 99% sure. At CES we always had new compact cameras which we usually don’t care a lot about :)
P.S.: Panasonic G5 and GF5 successor are scheduled for a later release AFTER Ces.
