Olympus confirms that they are working on the E-3 successor.

Share

In an interview with Amateur Photographer MR.Terada from Olympus said that “we are planning to introduce new Four Thirds bodies in the future” and “a replacement for the top-end E-3 is being worked on“.

We from 43rumors”believe” that the E-5 (?) will be more than just an upgraded E-3.

Now the BIG question. What happened with MR.Richard S. Pelkowski from Olympus US who weeks ago told us that the Olympus E-Sytem will go mirrorless within two years?

(FT4) Rumors: Things are not as quiet as you may think! New Olympus FourThirds camera in Q1!

As you may have noticed we haven’t post many rumors in the past weeks. One of the reasons is that we do not expect a new camera or lenses announcement before February. Anyway we are receiving first rumors about future Olympus stuff. What we can say for now is that it is very likely that Olympus will announce a new camera in Q1. And we strongly believe it will be a FourThirds camera! We are not certain if it will be the E-620 or E-30 or E-3 successor.

If you know something about the camera feel free to contact us at 43rumors@gmail.com or use the contact form on the right sidebar!

We hope to know more soon!
cheers

Do you like the Voigtlander image quality?

(FT3) Olympus says there will be no E-3 successor (for now)…

Colorfoto.de asked Olympus Germany if they are planning to soon release the E-3 successor:
…Olympus Germany said to colorfoto.de, there is still no definite timetable for the introduction of a possible follow-up model. For the foreseeable future the E-3 will remain the top model…” and “…In any case, Olympus also confirmed that they will continue to develop the E-system parallel to the Micro Four Thirds system.”

(FT2) E-5 Suisse rumors…

http://www.dslr-forum.de/showthread.php?t=565731&page=5

At a Oly event in Switzerland Olympus employee mentioned the following specs for the  successor: higher resolution, high-resolution display, a new AF module, more FPS, better Viewfinder. The E-3 successor will be settled a class above the E-3 …

Original german text:

Bevor ich das 14-35 2.0 zulegte liess ich mir persönlich im Gespräch an einem Oly-Event hier in der Schweiz versichern, dass ein Nachfolger kommt. Der Herr erwähnte folgendes: höhere Auflösung, hochauflösender Display, neues AF-Modul, mehr FPS, Sucher gleich E-3 oder grösser(!). Näher ins Detail wollte er nicht. Nur so viel, der E-3 Nachfolger wird sich deutlich von allen anderen Oly-Kameras abheben und eine Klasse über der E-3 angesiedelt werden… Ebenso werde sich damit die Rausch- und Dynamikdiskussion erledigt haben!

(FT2) UPDATED-> New source says “not the E-P2 but the E-3 successor is coming”

I choose to post this rumor because the person seems to be really honest and not a “rumor cheater” (someone who invents rumors). It is a news source that’s why I am going to post it with “FT2″ value (rumor from new unknown source). The source had a talk with a man close to Olympus and that is what this man said:

No annoucement for an ep-2 before spring 2010 […] It will have some sort of viewfinder […] One of my friend that work with me was interested to buy the e-3 and 12-60 but he told him to wait until 2010 or even sooner you will see new camera body and new lenses. But not a replacement for the 12-60, something new he said, something that is missing in the olympus lense line. But i dont know about what it could be […] So my tough is no more MFT for 2009, they are now concentrating on the Dslr market that they are loosing a bit with the new 7d from canon. They need a faster body.

I know this rumor says the exact opposit as the rumors we posted before. But we don’t know everything. My bet is that by end of October we will have 80% chance to see the next MicroFourThirds camera and 10% to see the E-3 successor, and another 10% to have both.  I know you like the latest option!!! ;)

UPDATE: Just received this from a different source “Hi, just combining some speculations.
The lens missing in the Olympus line-up could very well be the 100mm macro which have been on the roadmap for long. I have first hand knowledge from an Olympus employee who had it to play with in the end of 2008. But they obviusly decided not to release it then… Perhaps in order to enable Contrast AF or similar. Lets hope they have it finished by now.
