As I told you yesterday the announcement is scheduled for late April. And it’s a new PEN what we will see. Tonight I also got another feedback form a trusted sources confirming that the new PEN has no integrated viewfinder. So this is now FT5(!).

(FT5) New PEN camera to be announced in late April.

Share

Multiple trusted sources now confirmed that a new Olympus announcement has been scheduled for late April. And it is also confirmed that there will be a new PEN camera and there will be no new OMD of Four Thirds camera. I am still not 100% sure yet but it looks like the new PEN has no integrated viewfinder and price will be at around $1,000 with kit lens. So no digital PEN-F guys…and for $1,000 I hope it has at least a new generation sensor :)
There will be a new external viewfinder instead with 2,44 Million dots. This one is made by Epson.

Panasonic announcement will be in early April. At least two new MFT cameras are going to be announced. So better for you to stay tuned on 43rumors!

200 Euro price drop on the E-M5 in Germany too.

.

43rumors reader Erwin just sent me that image and wrote: “I got this Lufthansa Miles&More WorldShop catalogue about 2 weeks ago, showing the OM-D for 1.099 €“. Yesterday we got notified that there is a similar deal in Holland (here is the pdf flyer).

I still don’t see that price drop in German Stores like Amazon Germany. Let me know if you find them in Germany and in the rest of Europe! Thanks!

UPDATE: Jarrkko sent me that message: “OM-DE with kit lens sells in Finland for 1 099,00€ (incl. VAT 24 %).  See more at: https://www.topshot.fi/category/491/olympus-om-d

UPDATE_2: In UK price drop too at SimplyElectronics.
