(FT4) UPDATED: Olympus modular camera in 2011…and no FourThirds 100mm macro lens

We have a new update about the Olympus modular camera. Few weeks ago we told you that there are three possible scenarios:

1) They release the Olympus E-5 at Photokina and the first modular camera by end 2010-early 2011.
2) They will skip the Olympus E-5 release and announce a semi modular camera (it means with not all the planned features)
3) Olympus makes the miracle and the modular camera should come with all the new features.

UPDATE: According to new infos we received from our sources the fully modular camera (scenario 3) will come in 2011 only.

Another source told us that the long awaited 100mm macro FourThirds lens will not be released at Photokina (click here to see the .pdf with the FourThirds roadmap)…and at that point we doubt it will ever be released :(

REMINDER: Those are rumors only and not official Olympus news. Keep it in mind when you discuss our rumors on 43rumors or other blogs and forums!

It’s summertime..do you need the Olympus E-PL1 Waterproof Housing?

It’s summertime and I can imagine that many of you would be able to use the Olympus E-PL1 for your diving trips. The $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus PT-EP01 if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus PT-EP01 if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus PT-EP01 if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus PT-EP01 if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus PT-EP01 if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus PT-EP01 if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus PT-EP01 if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus PT-EP01 if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus PT-EP01 if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus PT-EP01 if ($sel != '1')
{?>Olympus PT-EP01 underwater case works pefectly with your E-PL1!

You can find the case on $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

(FT4) More news about the next Panasonic camera with FourThirds sensor

Some new hints about the camera
1) Yes there will be a Leica version of the new Panasonic compact camera. And of course it will be a little bit more expensive ;)
2) The lens starts at 24mm and with f/2.0 (like the LX3!) but it has 3x zoom (unlike the 2.5x zoom on the LX3)

– It will have a special rangefinder-type optical viewfinder that is borrowed from Leica with marks in it for max zoom and fully wide angle!
