(FT3) E-P3 successor has same E-M5 16 megapixel sensor.


I am not sure about this rumor yet but a trusted sources told me that it is highly unlikely the E-P3 successor will feature a completely new sensor. The E-P5 will almost certainly use the same E-M5-E-Pm2-E-PL5 sensor (16 Megapixel). It will be interesting to see if the camera will get rid of the Anti Aliasing filter to squeeze out the last bit of sharpness and resolution.

Anyway, for now those are the posisble characteristics of the new E-P5:
– 16 megapixel sensor
– No integrated viewfinder
– Price around $1,000 with kit lens
– New external viewfinder as optional (2,44 million dot)
– Announcement in late April/early May and availability in June
