(FT3) Olympus High End MicroFourThirds camera


This one comes from a good source. He heard something about an Olympus High-End MicroFourThirds model but he doesn’t know if this rumor will become true…

The rumors says that Olympus plans:

a new m43 have E3 Body ( splash- and dust-proof construction with all major parts, including the built-in flash and the LCD monitor swivel) Maybe with GPS and Bluetooth…

We are talking about a model which should be unveiled in 2010.

  • Chow

    Great, but I would like to see some good lenses first ;)

  • John

    Right… E-3 Body? Not a body with E-3 features?
    Totally weird.

  • adessio

    maybe it’s the same format as E-3, but smaller.

  • Chester

    will it just like a e3 but with similar case only?

  • Chris Polis

    I suspect you will see good lenses with, not before.

    Sounds like E-3 features with language errors rather than an E-3 body with 20mm off the front. Not a bad move if they do. All of a sudden Panasonic is caught out a tad because their gear is not splashproof…

  • Duarte Bruno

    Well I can’t wait that much. If the E-P2 delivers in the MF department I’m game. A swivel LCD and as good as G1 EVF is all I ask. In fact if the GH1 had sensor IS, it would be my perfect camera and I would already own one.

  • I think that’s perfect for my style.. i ilke olympus and want to use M4/3 because light weight and small size. but i dont like retro style of e-p1

    therefore in my country(thailand) not have any place to buy panny 4/3 TwT/

  • Charles

    They need to fix the AF issues before they start producing any high end body.

  • jan M

    I rather woluld like a New E4 with a new ‘noiseless’ 12 Mpix. ccd, and a real quick liveview.( Perhaps borowed from Panasonic.) And a 900 pix. heigh definition swivel screen.
    The rest i OK (except perhaps the price tag.)
    I would love that..

  • Jozeph

    This is a non-rumor. Comon guys, just another 4 days and we’ll see with what Oly will surprise us. Or not.
