P.S.: Didn’t know what kind of image to post along this article and I have randomly chosen the Olympus Pen F.

  • Reza

    Whatever happened to the Pentax mirrorless due in March?

    • shutterwill

      and the Nikon mirrorless ??

  • GreyOwl

    Good choice of image admin, a classic design (apart fom the letter F) that still looks clean and modern today. It sits well along side the OM1/OM2.

  • Jadakiss

    Maybe they will unveil the MFT pro camera and a few pro lenses!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Duarte Bruno

      Then again maybe next year… :(

      • George

        or maybe next decade

        • steve

          Seriously, does anyone have any hint at all if Oly are working on their own GH2 ?

          • jeff

            gh2 is an ugly design that isnt changing anything in the way of cameras

            a ep2 with a built in EVF is 1000x more sexy and functional

          • TR

            +1 That what we want!

          • Mr. Reeee

            @jeff … but the EP2 with the 1960s NostalgiaCam styling, in four barely-different models, is breaking new ground? Seriously?

            Olympus needs a model with a built-in EVF to round out their M4/3 lineup. An articulated LCD, as the Panasonic G2 and GH2 have, adds a ton of flexibility. It’s a shame no Oly M4/3 camera has that feature. As it would be nice for Panasonics to offer IBIS.

            Not all users have the same needs or requirements.

            @Mr. Reeee

            You seem to have the exact same needs or requirements as me. A Panasonic (G2/GH2) body with IBIS or an Olympus body with built-in EVF and articulated screen is all I ask for. I think Olympus will be the only one to deliver, as it doesn’t make sense for Panasonic to go the IBIS route now.

          • steve

            I can’t say I care that much about looks. The GH2 has faster AF, better sensor, and blah blah. But the jpegs aren’t as good as Oly and the lack of IBIS is a shame too. So an Oly version of the GH2 (that looks suitably retro for the fossils ?) would be very welcome.

          • Mr. Reeee

            @mclarent & steve…
            As I’m not interested in waiting forever for the mythical perfect anything, I got a GH2.

            As far as IBIS goes, it’s a nice perk, but since I’ve never had a camera that has it, use some manual (aperture & focus) lenses and prefer available light, there’s not much for me to miss. ;-)

            The JPEGs are a toss up. Oly have marginally less noise at higher ISOs. Panasonic have more natural color. Ultimately, I plan on shooting mostly RAW once I get more comfortable.

  • Ulli

    maybe when we expect it the least…….:-)

    • Yes, Olympus is going to announce the Spanish Inquisition.

  • Mr. Reeee

    Olympus definitely needs to address the dearth of compact cameras in their lineup!

    • Preferably by axing as many of them as possible.

  • GreyOwl

    Nobody expected the Spanish Inquisition!

  • O/T

    Dream of a pancake zoom is one step closer!

    Samsung NX 20mm pancake vs. 20-50mm zoom:

  • Ron

    Such a stunning little camera that Pen F…

  • Eric from Edmonton

    Did u really post this pic randomly or u know something we don’t? “)

  • Robbie

    Didn’t see any new camera release on the official webpage.
    Well, there are, but sound recorders (BTW they make really good ones)
