And today also Olympus Japan confirmed the PEN-F has been discontinued. I repeat it once more that I have heard of NO PEN-F II coming any time soon. And if you read on other rumors sites that a PEN-FII has been registered this is a a FAKE news as the registration has only been made to extend the rights on the current PEN-F model.
The fact that we are seeing the PEN-F discontinued before a new model has been announced make me worry a lot for the future of the PEN-F. I have heard from reliable sources that PEN-F sales did not meet the expected sales target…
Reminder: Don’t trust the other “rumor sites” saying a new Olympus PEN-F camera has been registered. Explanation WHY there is no new PEN-F camera registration:
1) You don’t trust us? Look at 100% reliable Nokishita that did not report this registration because there is NO NEW PEN-F registration!
2) The current PEN-F registration would have expired in January that’s why they made a new registration (with new PLG ID number) to extend it.
3) Olympus registers NEW cameras with “IMxxx” code as usual!
