(FT4) UPDATED-> No Olympus MFT camera on October 31?

I constantly find people refering to the 31st of October as a possible launch date for the E-P2. Photorumors posted a teaser with the date. I do not know if Olympus will announce new products on 31st of October but our sources told us that the next Olympus MFT camera will be announced later this year (November/December) and not this Saturday. They also told us that the camera will be available in the first months of 2010.

So what will happen on October 31? No idea. Maybe new FourThirds stuff is coming? Or maybe nothing.


(FT2) Few unknown sources do say the E-30 successor could be announced soon.

(FT2) The Administrator of clubsnap.com says there will be an important Olympus event on November 5 in Singapore.

    I think there are more ppl waiting for the E-3 successor than a new m43 cam to be honest..

    It’s taking forever to get an official announcement, it seems!
    There are a lot of people interested in a MFT with an EVF! Such cameras will gradually take over much of the amateur interchangeable-lens market, there’s no doubt.

    I’m sorry to be the one saying this, but I think it’s time to get your act together!
    You post a FT5 saying a new m43 body it’s coming and one or two days later you post a FT4 saying it’s not? :-O
    This latest post is doing nothing else than totally trashing the credit of the site!!! :(

    You simply CAN NOT dance at two weddings!

    And you do this because there are news of a m43 body in December? Come on! There are more rumors than I can count of an upper and a lower body to the E-P1. What is the problem with the upper body now and the lower in December? Or the other way around?

    And you have seen the mention on a Olympus Official site and still don’t believe? I though you were Mulder but now I see you are playing Scully?

    I know everybody is impatient (and I could break the record) but you really need to take a deep breath and downgrade it badly from FT4. :(

    I am sick of hearing about E-P1/2, GF1, Panaleica micro glass, Pancakes, blind EVF(s) and photographic shots whith arms spread out of the body. How it can be possibile with a ZD 300mm 2.8, without doing ernias in the back?

  • m43 camera are designed for short zoom/pancakes.

    there is possibility of Olympus holding back the e-p2, because the release is so close to the original e-p1 and it will surely cannibalized the e-p1 sales and make e-p1 irrelevant.

    There is more possibility of new 4/3 but recent interview said (if i am not mistaken) that olympus put most of their resources on m43 right now and believe that this is the future.

    maybe we just need to wait spring next year for significant product release.
