(FT4) What’s coming from Olympus



I don’t know if the recent Kumamoto earthquake did postpone the timing for some single new products. Anyway this is what we can expect to be announced by Olympus before Photokina start:

  • Olympus E-PL8 (already leaked months ago but announcement delayed due the Kumamoto earthquake)
  • 30mm f/3.5 MFT macro lens
  • 25mm f/1.2 PRO Zuiko MFT lens.
  • New PRO standard zoom
  • Olympus E-M1II (maybe shipment will be postponed til early 2017 due the Kumamoto eartquake)

a bit of everything…
