(FT5) A successor of one of the current Olympus PEN to be announced in February.

According to our sources Olympus will announce one new Micro Four Thirds camera in February. The camera will replace one of the current PEN cameras. Don’t expect major changes, it uses the same 12 Megapixel sensor but at least it features a new sensor engine. Along with that camera Olympus will announce three new lenses. One of those will be the new kit lens of the new PEN (it’s a pancake). I received a few more details about that camera but I want to double check them with my trusted sources. If you have some news to share feel free to contact me at 43rumors@gmail.com or use the contact form on the right sidebar. Thanks!

Reminder: The high-end MFT camera will be announced a short time after the new PEN (and yes it has a built-in viewfinder).

(UPDATED with sample pictures) And here it is the new 26mm f/1.4 toy lens from SLRmagic!

And here it is the new native Micro Four Thirds lens from SLRmagic. The Toy Lens 26mm f/1.4 lens is a multi coated manual prime lens. It is a special effects lens that is meant to capture impressionistic images. Dreamy, color twist, and noticeable vignette: “The lens is great for portrait photography and some say that it is great for Lo-Fi photography. We occasionally receive questions about how this lens differ from the kit lens. The simple answer is it will enable you to capture photos in every other way that the kit lens cannot. Toy Lens was designed to bring more fun to your photography.”

So it doesn’t sound like that lens has a great sharpness ;)

You can get that lens for $79 on eBay (Click here).

UPDATE: SLRmagic just contacted me and sent me those pictures (Click on thumbnail to enlarge).
