” The other zoom lens that could come in together is the M43 variant of the 40-150mm. We use the word â€˜variantâ€™ because there may be modifications here.”
“Both the model for June 16 and the one for end-of-year will sport the now-familiar 12.3-megapixel LiveMOS sensor. TruePic will remain at generation III+ but there will be additional capabilities of which the most eagerly awaited is their video capabilities.”
” Itâ€™s more likely that you will see a more serious chrome-black model instead, almost reminiscent of Olympusâ€™ RD/RC rangefinders or the Pen-series. December will see a full-black model and more serious features including lenses.”
“Olympus understands the strong appeal of a real rangefinder. Itâ€™s been there and done that and the revival of something very similar in the digital era is an important growth area for digital camera sales.“
