(FT4) UPDATED-> Olympus next MFT camera to be announced late November/early December


Dear readers,

since I am back from my journey in Asia I am working on collecting new rumors. One month ago photorumors posted a rumor saying the E-P2 could probably be unveiled on October 31. Our sources confirmed us that there will be a second MFT camera from Olympus before the end of the year, but never confirmed the October date (we received two confirmations from unknown sources). Since then we haven’t found any important leaks. And now we only have 10 days left to go. This made us suspicious and finally two very trusted sources told us that the next MicroFourThirds camera is going to be announced later, probably late November early December.

The Rumors summary we posted yesterday remains correct but we have to add the high probable rumor that the next MFT is going to be announced later this year.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: One trusted source wrote us now saying there will be a new Olympus announcement on October 31.

My speculation, E-3 successor late October and MFT camera in December?

* ISO 50-102,400
* 10 fps still image capture
* 45 AF points (39 cross-type points)
