Other big companies like Canon (January 9) and Sony (Today live via ustream) already have their programmed press release. I still don’t know when Panasonic and Olympus will make their press realease. If you know something let me know!
The Panasonic compact cameras have been leaked yesterday and I do not expect other surprises from Panasonic. Olympus will also announce compact cameras. Is that all what we should expect for now? I know that Olympus plans to update some of their FourThirds cameras. Will they surprise us and present a new FourThirds camera this week? We hope to know more soon…
UPDATE: Do not expect the E-3 successor.
If you won’t wait Amazon, BHphoto or Adorma until they have the lenses in Stock I will show you a little “trick”.
Third party resellers do have the Lenses in Stock at amazon. But normally it is difficoult to find it:
