The E-P5 is here but a rumor site is always hungry and we collected two info about the next Olympus MFT camera. As you it’s coming in Spetember and it will be the new OMD model (E-M6?). Two rumors came right out of the E-P5 presentation:
1) Our friend Pekka Potka wrote: “Quite obvious to everyone seeing E-P5 should be that the next OM-D series model goes well above E-M5 in features. Incorporating VF-4 should be just one of them. And that is all I can say now…”
2) Olympus employees at the PEN Collection 2013 Fair said that next OMD will have phase detection AF (Source: biglobe).
It’s not the first time we get this rumors and and both features are very likely to make into the new OMD model. What are you hoping to get with the new OMD?
