(FT4) There is a new VF viewfinder(???) coming along the new PEN cameras?


The image on top shows the current VF-3 viewfinder.

It looks like the viewfinder surprise coming along the new PEN cameras is a new external VF viewfinder. Have no other info yet but the source seems to be reliable. UPDATE: A source told me that is is not really an external viewfinder, nor an internal, but something completely “new”. The mystery gets bigger…

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!

(FT4) E-PL5 has no integrated viewfinder.

A nice Olympus RC picture taken by Blurdotblog.com.

A couple of weeks ago I got that anonymous message: ” “Although the EP3 is set to be discontinued, updates to the EPL range should include some sort of viewfinder. Not sure of any further details yet.” Trusted sources now confirmed that there is NO built-in viewfinder. The major changes on the E-PM1 and E-PL3 are the ergonomic and a slightly increase in image quality.

If the anonymous soruce told us the truth than the viewfinder news may be just related to an external viewfinder kit option. What’s sure is the E-P range as we know is not going to continue. There may be some news regarding that a couple of months after the Photokina show.

P.S.: Check out the Olympus RC film cameras on eBay.
