Olympus had to delay the E-PL8 launch due the Sony sensor production stop in Kumamoto. Now it’s unclear when exactly Olympus can release the camera. But a trusted source confirmed this:

  1. The camera will come in three colors: black, white, light brown.
  2. The camera has the “usual” 16MP Sony MFT sensor

Along the camera Olympus will also announce the new 30mm f/3.5 macro lens. Not sure tough if they will also announce the new 25mm f/1.2 PRO lens at the same time.
