(FT2) The E-P2 will share the same E-P1 body or not?


Just received an email from one of source. He told me that maybe the E-P2 (or maybe it will have a different name?) could be similar in size and form.
UPDATE: The CEO from Olympus already told officially that the next camera will not be that bigger!

As Olympus already told many there will be an electornic viewfinder (and according to forum-fourthirds that will be external)

Surprised? I am!

    SO the EP-1 was simply a placeholder to bring something to the market whilst Oly did the research to make a proper m43 camera. That’ll explain the slow autofocus and other issues people have commented on. Still it seems good for what it is.

    EP-2 body in my dream is a smaller current 4/3 system body

    if share with Ep1。。。 hope olympus make changes of it back
    i mean the button and wheels

    So, no in-body flash again?

    I’m glad they chose the E-P1 as the base. This means they will have to work a lot on the firmware. The detachable EVF is a good move IMHO. Still I find it difficult to strive to the advanced amateur without a tilt & swivel. :(

    Maybe I should cancell my preorder for the white e-p1

    Keeping EP-1’s body shape is good thing. At the beginning I was skeptical about Olympus digital PEN design, but now I see why is this camera so special.
    What can be improved in next EP-2?
    – definitely a fully black coloured body with rubber stripe across the front side of the camera, no shiny decoration on black one.
    – optional OVFs with AF LED (for all M Zuiko prime lenses) and EVF.
    – improved AF speed, dynamic range, high ISO above 800 (although EP-1 is very good), even quieter shutter sound.
    – new prime lenses at least f2 (or f1.8 etc) for low light situations.
    – keep the body small as possible or even smaller than EP-1
    – and other stuff I forget to think about ;)

    i think they should bring the built-in-radiocontroled flash-interface, that would make me buy the “e-p2” + external flash, i really like the super-fp-mode on those for 1/60 ex there you can even get some movements in the flashligt, and the possible to do a flash set in a easy way with no cables are very attractiv to me.
