I finally got some bits about the next Olympus announcement that will be made right before the CP+ show start in Yokohama (January 31th). The discontinued Olympus 75-300mm MFT lens (at BHphoto) will be replaced by the new 75-300mm II F4.8-6.7 ED lens.
And there will be a a new Olympus XZ-10 that is smaller and lighter than the current XZ-2. It has a f/1,8-2,7 lens and will be cheaper than the current XZ-2 model (here on eBay).
Major new MFT stuff from both Olympus and Panasonic will come in March-April. It’s when also Canon, Sony and Samsung will announce their new mirrorless cameras…
