Olympus sends out invitations for May 11 presentation (but announcement should be on May 9)


Olympus Japan and Olympus Malaysia are sending out invitiations for a first “touch and try” event with the new PEN. But I have been told by one source that the announcement will be made earlier “probably around May 9”.

Here is an original Olympus email invitation received by one of our readers (Thanks!):

(FT5) Specs: E-P5 is an “improved” E-M5.


A trusted source told me that the E-P5 image I posted yesterday is definitely real. He confirmed that the E-P5 has the same image quality of the E-M5 because it uses the same sensor and same True Pic engine. But he also told me the E-P5 has a faster AF and better 5 axis stabilization system than the current Olympus E-M5. The new VF-4 external viewfinder will be announced the same day of the E-P5 and has 2,36 Million dot (it’s from Epson). The E-P5 also has built-in WiFi, something the E-M5 has not.

For sources: Sources can send me anonymous info at 43rumors@gmail.com (create a fake gmail account) or via contact form you see on the right sidebar. Thanks!
