(FT5) The all black E-P2 image (+ rumors summary)


The latest 24hours have been very busy. I am currently on a trip at the sea and it’s an adventure posting on 43rumors from here. I didn’t expect Olympus to announce new stuff tomorrow. There will be two different announcements on August 31 and September 14. It’s time for a resume of all latest rumors:

On August 31 Olympus will announce:

1) a new E-P2 kit with black 17mm lens and black external flash. A perfect Stealthcamera!
There will be also two new MFT lenses:
2) The new M.Zuiko ED 75-300mm f/4.8-6.7 (equivalent of 150-600mm in 35mm)
It is the world smallest 600mm zoom lens. It weighs 430 grams and has a diameter of 7cm and 11.6cm length.
It allows nearly silent HD movie recording.
The new lenses are made with ED (extra-low dispersion)
It will be available in December 2010 for $899.99
3) the new M.Zuiko ED 40-150mm f/4.0-5.6 equivalent of 80-300mm in 35mm)
It weighs 190 grams.
It will be available in November 2010 for $299.99

On September 14 Olympus will announce the E-5:

It has 12Megapixel, two more than the “older” E-3. It has the new TruePic 5 engine for better detail, 720p hd video at 30p, 11 pt af, 920k dot res lcd, 3 inches, art filters and a mic jack.
