A Micro Four Thirds rumors roadmap

Don’t make fun of me because of that baby-graph I posted here :)

We posted so many rumors that it’s good to post a visual summary of what could be coming soon. Keep in mind that those are rumors. Some of them may be true, some will change and some of them may be turn out to be false. But one thing I can tell you. Panasonic and Olympus will very soon announce MANY new Micro Four Thirds products. Just curious…

Which rumored camera/lens are you more interested in? (you can vote more than once)

First Olympus E-PL2 already on eBay and Amazon.de! (+ Amazon E-PL2 status change)

Olympus is as usual much faster than Panasonic in shipping new products. Unlike the Panasonic GH2 (only the silver version is in Stock at Adorama) the new Olympus E-PL2 is already in Stock at eBay (Click here) two weeks only after the announcement! It’s sold by an eBay Powerseller from Hong Kong which has more than ten of them in Stock. And Amazon US has changed the status from “preorder” to “temporarily out of Stock” which usually means that they will have them in Stock very soon.
Panasonic, you should take a lesson from Olympus on how to shorten the rime between the announcement and the real delivery of new products ;)

Pre order the Olympus E-PL2 at Amazon, Adorama, Amazon DE, Amazon FR,
And the Olympus XZ-1 at Amazon, Adorama, Amazon DE, Amazon FR and Amazon UK.

Double interview with Olympus and Panasonic (Imaging Resource)


Imaging Resource posted a double interview with Olympus and Panasonic!

First they had a small talk with Peter Ewen, Katie Roseman, and Sally Smith-Clemens from Olympus USA. Olympus underlined their commitment to the 12 Megapixel “Philosophy”. And honestly I do agre with what they say :) . They also talk about the E-5 (huge success!) their Four Thirds plans and the movie and 3D trend. There are plenty of interesting info but no details about future products.

The second interview has been made with Darin Pepple from Panasonic USA. He said “We’re finding that the compact system camera is not really stealing business (in USA) or cannibalizing in any way the SLR business right now. What’s really happening is we’ve identified about 23 million users that would love to be in an SLR“. And that is what he says about the APS-C sensor mirrorless competition: “With the Micro Four Thirds system, we are a little bit smaller than an APS-C sized sensor that you’d find in any one of our competitors, for example. But at the same time, they’ve corrupted the lens quality to try and get it down so small, that the edge detail — they’ve sort of blurred out the image. Especially in the zooms, not so much in the fixed focal-lengths, but the zoom lenses.”

Take time to read both (very long) articles and let us know what you think about them!
