It’s almost a year now that we speculate about a new Olympus hybrid mount camera. And finally I got multiple feedbacks from sources saying that indeed Olympus will launch a High End OMD camera in September that will have 100% full support for both MFT and FT lenses. And surprise, the High End OMD also replaces the current [shoplink 17163]Olympus E-5 FT camera[/shoplink]! The High End OMD is placed a step above the current [shoplink 29074]Olympus E-M5[/shoplink]. The High End OMD doesn’t replace the E-m5 and the E-m5 will get replaced in 2014.
So what about the mount? I am still not 100% sure on this but it seems that the new High End OMD has some sort of hybrid MFT and FT mount. How this should work I don’t know yet. Hope more sources can read this post and answer that question soon. Thanks!
