The Olympus 35 SP rangefinder film camera. Will Olympus take inspiration form the past for the new m43 camera?
Finally the time has come for us to see a real new kind of a camera! Our top sources just sent me a huge “warning”. Olympus is going to announce a new product very soon….within the next couple of weeks!!! The big PMA event starts on January 10 so it’s easy to guess that Olympus will show the new camera there. It’s a weather-sealed camera with integrated viewfinder. I didn’t get any detailed specs now but I have been told it’s a damn nice product, a camera “that many at 43rumors will like to buy“. I don’t know yet if the camera will have a rangefinder style (viewfinder on the corner like on that Olympus 35 SP (See here on eBay) or a more classic DSLR alike design like the glorious Olympus OM-1 (See here on eBay). Can’t wait to see get the images of the real cam soon!
I am currently asking my sources to send me as much info as possible. If you find something on the web, or if you heard a “rumor” help me by sending me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact form on the right sidebar (It’s anonymous!).
P.S.: There will be other new products too. (like the XZ-1 successor). And Panasonic will also have an announcement soon!
