More Olympus micro four thirds rumors!

This are excepts from an article from http://zone-10.com.

More or less they confirm our rumors and add some details (the bold part in the text):

The other zoom lens that could come in together is the M43 variant of the 40-150mm. We use the word ‘variant’ because there may be modifications here.

Both the model for June 16 and the one for end-of-year will sport the now-familiar 12.3-megapixel LiveMOS sensor. TruePic will remain at generation III+ but there will be additional capabilities of which the most eagerly awaited is their video capabilities.

It’s more likely that you will see a more serious chrome-black model instead, almost reminiscent of Olympus’ RD/RC rangefinders or the Pen-series. December will see a full-black model and more serious features including lenses.

Olympus understands the strong appeal of a real rangefinder. It’s been there and done that and the revival of something very similar in the digital era is an important growth area for digital camera sales.

Ok, K7D the May 21th!

Taken from russian forum (http://www.penta-club.ru/forum/)

UPDATE: quesabesde confirms OUR specs!

The k7d will land on earth May 21th!!!

There are many forum discussions around so it is quiet difficoult to have a good overview over the specs.

But for sure the price will be something between 1.200-1.500 Euro. The camera will have video recording. You can use the new DA* lenses. There is a new Auftofocussytem. 100% viewfinder, kind-of-metal-housing, hd-videomode, better, faster and more accurate af, 5-6fps, many little changes in order to improve ergonomy…”

French magazine “Réponses Photo” confirms new Pentax DSLR release for may.

A poster in a pentax forum writes “pentax is late comapring to canikon so this new item would be a DSLR that will “jump” a generation and will bring something new”

Then DA* 60-250 launch date is 24th of April!!!

There seems to be a Microphone hole opening on the head of the camera in front of the Hotshoe, which implies it is a video capable DSLR!

Pentax Austria confirms the release of the new Pentax K7D. It will be announced the third week in May.

There are a lot of speculations, 1.3 cropfactor, square sensor, video recording, new autofocus system… :)

What is certain the K7D is not a K20 successor but a completely new line of Pentax digital cameras.

(FT 2) Olympus E-5

The picture has been sent to us 3 weeks ago. The anonymus sender believes this could be a REAL! Olympus E-5 picture. To bad it is to small to judge if this could be true.

Some funny joking 43rumors visitor was claiming this will be the E-5 specs! So, take it easy, relax, this is probaly a fake rumor ok?

The Olympus E-5 will be the first camera to breake the 12Megapixel barrier!

-15 Megapixel on a slightly larger sensor (similar to the GH1 sensor which is bigger then the G1)

-3.0 AMOLED display (this would be a BIG surprise). Panasonic has the tecnology to build AMOLED screens. They have the advantage to be bright and clearly visible even in outdoor shootings.

– NO Video recording

-Usual stuff like Body IS, Art Filter,….

P.S: The only 100% real rumor is that the camera will be released in 2009 ;)
