(FT4) New Olympus compact zoom similar in size and performance like the Panasonic.

Share

Also Olympus will follow Panasonic lens miniaturization route and along the E-M10 and 25mm f/1.8 lens they will also launch a very compact zoom. I have been told size and image quality are very close to the Panasonic. One source said that the major difference is that the new Olympus zoom has a built-in protection cap just like the lens used by the Olympus Stylus 1.

No info about exact focal length and price yet. But I hope I will have them soon :)

(FT5) Olympus E-M10 has a smaller body than the E-M5 and built-in flash!

The new E-M10 is said to be closer to the E-Pl5 in terms of body size (Image courtesy: Camerasize).

Two trusted sources added more info on the soon to be announced new OMD E-M10 camera. The camera is said to be smaller than the E-M5. It’s a sort of E-PL sized body with EVF on top. And unlike the other OMD models this one has a built-in Flash!

In summary these are the specs so far for the entry level OMD:
– 16MP sensor (same as E-M5 and with no PDAF)
– True Pic VII processor (same as E-M1)
– Very small body
– integrated flash
– 3 axis stabilization
– comes with new compact zoom as kit lens

I guess the failure or success will now be determined merely by the price of the camera. This sounds ike a nice low budget camera. So let it be really low budget :)

P.S.: There will be also a new 25mm f/1.8 lens.
