I have been told that while the E-P5 shoots 5fps in normal mode it can go up to 9fp with locked AF. For now these are the rumored E-P5 specs:
– 16 Megapixel sensor (same as E-M5)
– TruePic VI image processing engine
– improved AF (compared to E-M5)
– improved 5 axis stabilization
– 5fps (9fps with AL locekd)
– focus peaking
– Shutter 1/8000 sec
– built-in WiFi
– 1.04 million dot tilting touchscreen LCD (no more OLED!).
– QR sharing
Mark that day and that hour: Olympus announcement i scheduled for May 10 at 6am London time. That is:

As usual be sure to be online at 43rumors on that time as I will follow live the vent and continually update you with new links to reviews, first image and video samples, test and so on. To not miss any rumors and join out community like us on facebook and follow our tweets.
You can grab the E-M5 body for $861 at Amazon (Click here). Only seven are in Stock now but I think we will see more and more of these deals coming soon. It’s only 4-5 months to go until the successor will hit the stores!
Chris: “Just if you are interested to share this with the 43 Rumors readers. Most of this film (about 95%) was shot on a GH2 and an OMD EM-5. There are a few sequences from an iphone (pancakes section is iphone and a one or two others): https://vimeo.com/64437121”
Byron: “Hey there, your viewers might like this. Here is an interview that I shot of Zakk Wylde, guitar player for Ozzy Osbourne and Black Label Society. The interview was shot with a GH3 with the 12-35 f2.8 on Zakk, a hacked GH2 with the 14-140 on the host and another hacked GH2 with the stock kit lens as the wide two shot. The handheld shots were shot with a Nikon D800E. It was color graded using Premiere Pro CS6 and Magic Bullet Looks. Really loving the GH3, looks the best out of the bunch! Cheers! https://vimeo.com/65030628”
Joe: “Every Monday is Micro Four-thirds Monday on my blog (www.joefaraceblogs.com) and has tips and informations on MFT cameras and lenses. For example, this past Monday is was on using the Sigma 19mm f/2.8 DN lens for travel photography.”
Here you have the images of the new 75mm and 12mm Black lenses. Still missing is the image of the 45mm f/1.8 lens. I am not sure yet but the price of the Black lenses should be the same of the Silver version. Note that two of the three Silver primes are yet discounted (at least in USA).
The 17mm f/1.8 sells for $449 at Amazon, Adorama and BHphoto.
The 45mm sells for $349 at Amazon, Adorama and BHphoto.
The 75mm f/1.8 can be found with a $100 discount at [shoplink 38467 ebay]CameraLand (Click here)[/shoplink].
But I think the price of the Black version will be the previous “normal” price.
Digicaminfo reports that the E-PL6 may be released for Japanese marked only. As reported before the E-PL6 only has few minor improvements over the current E-Pl5. If you argue that this isn’t possible notice that this already happened in the past. A slightly updated E-PL1s was introduced in November 2010. Some of these “Japanese” E-PL1s can be found on eBay (Click here).
