(FT4) New E-P5 and E-PL6 info

The image on top has been posted by Olympus China. It confirms that the new E-P5 will be displayed at the Shanghai show on May 11th. I have been told by a source that the official worldwide announcement will be made 2-3 days before the event.

And according to a source from Digicaminfo these are the prices in YEN of the new E-P5 and E-PL6 cameras:

  • E-P5 body 99,800 yen (770 Euro, 1,000 Dollars).
  • E-P5 with body cap lens included for 105,800 yen (816 Euro, 1,070 Dollars).
  • E-PL6 body 69,800 yen (538 Euro, 700 Dollars). with kit lens 79,800 yen (615 Euro, 800 Dollars). and with double zoom kit is 99,800 yen (770 Euro, 1,000 Dollars).

I calculate the price based on the current currency conversion. But keep in mind that the US price is usually lower than the from YEN converted price.

Reminder: The E-P5 has the same 16 megapixel OMD sensor, no built-in EVF, it has built.in WiFi.
