Debunking rumors: Olympus did NOT register a new PEN-F

Share

A site with little experience in how to read the sertifikasi.postel.go.id public database claimed that Olympus registered a new PEN-F camera. In fact they did not! They only EXTENDED the current PEN-F name registration just like many other companies did. As usual new cameras will be first registered by Olympus with the “IMxxx” code first before they will get updated with the real name.

Don’t worry, there will be a PEN-FII sometimes but just not yet. Olympus will announce a new E-M1X around January 20 and one more little surprise camera too…stay tuned on 43rumors ;)

UPDATE: As reported by Mistral:

This is not the certification of a new camera, this is the extension of the certification of the current Olympus Pen-F at the request of Perdana Inti Putra PT, the importer and distributor of Olympus digital cameras in Indonesia.

The current certificate (44582/SDPPI/2016) would have expired on 18 January 2019.

The same extension was granted to the Leica SL (Typ 601) 25 days earlier:
