Olympus tweets us!



Sometimes things can be surprising. Yesterday we wrote the “It’s all quiet on this front…” post. And we predicted that something will happen soon. But we havn’t expected that soon! Olympus marketing is learning and came out with first signal using a new social communication form….twitter!
1001noisycamera discovered this tweet post.

In short the message from Florian (getolympus) is “What Olympus plans is pure speculation at this time, but it’s common knowledge that we & Panasonic jointly created Micro Four Thirds….Some good things are worth waiting for, like the Olympus Micro Four Thirds camera….”

Florian posted a link to

We repeat, ous sources are really excited over that micro four thirds camera. I can say you the same sources were not so happy with the Olympus E-450 release.

    Olympus’ Micro Four Thirds camera associated with PenFT is realy promising and way to go. If so, what would you like more: built-in bright *OVF or modern EVF on that vitage body? And what about aperture ring on the lens? Focus-by-wire or classical? What focal lenghts and speeds of prime lens do you need? Please, write a comment of your thoughts.

    *non TTL type(with active focusing point indicator)

    Modern EVF

    I really hope it is an updated version of the Pen, although I wouldn’t complain if it resembles the compact Panasonic m4/3 pictured above and to the left.

  • built-in bright OVF,
    which will make me use it as the same as CONTAX T3!
