43rumors team message (UPDATED)


Dear readers,

today we are going to work on our website design. Probably you will experience some strange layout changes and may some displaying error. We hope to finish our job in 12-14 hours.

For people who is waiting for new rumors we can anticipate you that next week we will reveal the name of the new Olympus micro four thirds camera. We have an update for Panasonic and Leica users over their micro four thirds golas. We are gonna to publish this news quickly after the final website checkup.

UPDATE: We are ready to activate the new template. The two sidebars have some layout problems we have to fix in the next hours. if you want to help us try to report the errors ;)

Thank you!

Alejandro and Marwin
