The latest 24hours have been very busy. I am currently on a trip at the sea and it’s an adventure posting on 43rumors from here. I didn’t expect Olympus to announce new stuff tomorrow. There will be two different announcements on August 31 and September 14. It’s time for a resume of all latest rumors:
On August 31 Olympus will announce:
1) a new [shoplink 14830]E-P2[/shoplink] kit with black [shoplink 14798]17mm[/shoplink] lens and black external flash. A perfect Stealthcamera!
There will be also two new MFT lenses:
2) The new M.Zuiko ED 75-300mm f/4.8-6.7 (equivalent of 150-600mm in 35mm)
It is the world smallest 600mm zoom lens. It weighs 430 grams and has a diameter of 7cm and 11.6cm length.
It allows nearly silent HD movie recording.
The new lenses are made with ED (extra-low dispersion)
It will be available in December 2010 for $899.99
3) the new M.Zuiko ED 40-150mm f/4.0-5.6 equivalent of 80-300mm in 35mm)
It weighs 190 grams.
It will be available in November 2010 for $299.99
On September 14 Olympus will announce the E-5:
It has 12Megapixel, two more than the “older” [shoplink 15032]E-3[/shoplink]. It has the new TruePic 5 engine for better detail, 720p hd video at 30p, 11 pt af, 920k dot res lcd, 3 inches, art filters and a mic jack.
P.S.: At the very first moment we thought also the E-5 would be announced on August31. Sorry for that, the sources did forget to mention us that.
