The Olympus E-P2 is exactly one year old. It has been announced in November 2009. So will there be any replacement during the next few weeks? According to two 43rumors sources this is NOT going to happen. The E-P3 will be unveiled in February along the new Olympus lenses (finally!!!). The sources also said the E-P3 will use a new Panasonic sensor. Not the same Panasonic GH2 sensor but definitely a sensor with more Megapixels than the actual E-PL1/E-P2. A few months ago 43rumors posted a rumor about the E-P3 having a built-in EVF which would make it look like the Fuji X100. The E-P3 would still remain very compact but be a little bit higher than the current E-P2.
So will we finally get our digital Olympus 35RC? If you know more about the future Olympus PEN camera and lenses feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or use the contact form on the right sidebar to contact me anonymously. Thanks!
P.S.: The Olympus 35RC is one of my favorite cameras and you can get it cheap on eBay (Click here)
