(FT5) First image of the new Olympus E-P5!

Yesterday we had the Panasonic announcement day. But there is no time for rest now. The next announcement is coming around May 9th by Olympus. And there will be certainly the new E-P5, almost certainly a new E-Pl6 and certainly no new MFT lens. As I told you before, expect no built-in EVF, and uses the same E-M5 16 megapixel sensor. On top you can see the first image of the new E-P5 which takes some inspiration from the traditional PEN-F style (here on eBay). It has a more “classic” look compared to previous PEN models. As you see the standard kit lens will be the new 17mm f/1.8 lens (and there is a 14-42mm kit option too). AF speed has been improved even over the best in it’s class, the Olympus E-M5. There is a new external EVF too.
