(FT3) Olympus E-P2? Fake pictures but real specs?


2c2deae2703a2ae9The images (from a japanese blog) are probably photoshopped.

“E-P2 is a smaller body size of around 1, and weighs under 300g?
EVF removable external support, all-black color and long-awaited debut!”

  • I vote for fake. The lower is definetly photoshopped, look at the inverted blue ring on top of the lens. I think this originated from dpreview, where somebody photoshopped E-P1 black body.

  • fmertz

    Viewfinder looks suspiciously like a flash. Left eyelet on lower photograph looks black instead of chrome. This is a fraud.

  • Phil Knall

    Umm… I read the original, and the last line says “注)妄想です。” Which translates into “Warning: just my imagination/daydream.”
    That said, the black body looks sexy.

  • Phil Knall

    For those interested, here’s an actual non-translation-engine translation of the text:
    “Following on the heels of the GF1: E-P2 will have external EVF capability!
    The E-P1 will have a slightly body size, weight below 300g?
    It will have external EVF capability, and the long-awaited black body color!
    Caution: I’m just making this up.”
    Just a guy posting his wishes for the next generation… move along, nothing to see…

    I just hope that the Ev-1 will work with E-P1, otherwise, E-P1 is worthless compare to E-P2. Unless E-P2 will be much more expensive than E-P1 (already not a cheap camera body.).

  • Ming

    i really hope the EP2 is a better featured camera with EVF and flash rather than smaller/lighter one.

  • Thyl Engelhardt

    Here’s hoping that Olympus finds a way to reprogram the flash interface to allow for transmitting viewfinder relevant data via the hot shoe. Be that an EVF or an OVF.

    This is a famous delusion blog in Japan.
    Writing is an imagination of the manager.
    All Japanese know it.

  • adessio

    i wish the EV will be swivel at 90º to the top.

  • Lu

    i wish the next olympus m4/3 camera will have real articulating display

  • zul

    Fake. If olympus want to come out with EP-2, I believe it will be in a different body design

  • Joachim

    I suppose that the EVF is on the picture too large in relation to the camera body.

  • Clearly fake, but the black body…whooeeee, love it. EVF, forget it, looks like someone ps’d the flash unit….remember the EP-1 comes with an external (not electronic) view finder to use with the 17mm lens. I know I used it already…rocks the house people.
