(FT4) Guess what? Both compact camera rumors may be correct. New XZ now and High End compact later.

-

Yesterday I posted a low rated FT2 rumor about an XZ camera with 28-300mm zoom and a Four Third sensor camera with fixed lens. I wasn’t sure which one was correct but with a little bit of help of one trusted and one new source (Thanks!) I learned that most likely both rumors are correct!

1) The new XZ compact camera with 28-300mm zoom and same sensor size like current XZ cameras will be announced in October.

2) Olympus is definitely working on a High End Premium compact camera with Four Thirds sensor. But it’s likely NOT going to be announced in October.

So there was the reason of the confusion, I got small bits of rumors about two different cameras and not one camera :)

 

Some of the glorious High End fixed Lens filmcameras from Olympus:

Olympus 35 SP (here on eBay and article on 43rumors)
