Rumors…no time for rest!


Just to keep you informed. Do not believe that after the Olympus E-PL1 has been announced things will be quiet on 43rumors :)
There is more to come! Panasonic will also launch “something” new and Olympus has still a Joker to play (the E-5).

What you may don’t know ;)
E-PL1 accessories (japanese) “Olympus has asked that I not post any specific focus times in this preview, but I can tell you that the E-PL1 feels a bit faster than its predecessors. It’s not as fast as the Panasonic G-series models, but it’s better than before. The camera still makes the lens run through the whole focus range every time the AF system runs, and the lack of an AF-assist lamp does not bode well for the PL1’s low light abilities.”
