(Speculation) Is Olympus working on a compact model a là Leica X1 and Sigma DP2?

Share

Last week our old server crashed two times. We had to make some space and we checked our database and old posts. And we noticed something we havn’t noticed before. I want to list you three rumors:

1) According to Mr. Watanabe (which has been interviewed by amateurphotographer) Olympus is working on camera above and below the E-P1. Source: http://www.amateurphotographer.co.uk

and

2)One (or both) camera will have an electronic viewfinder and faster AF and not get any bigger in size than E-P1

http://www.lemondedelaphoto.com/Entre-chat-a-propos-de-l-Olympus,2341.html

and

3) Zone-10 wrote a very long article over the E-P1. It is a very interesting text and they included following prediction:

“I fully expect to see Olympus introduce a “pocket-camera” Digital Pen that does not take interchangeable lenses. It will have an extending zoom lens, or another model may have a fixed 35mm equivalent lens which will close up flush. The Infinity Stylus Zoom film cameras would be good cameras to model this after.  The clamshell or sliding cover design is still viable and I have one which goes most everywhere with me. But pocketability is not in the design specification for the E-P1 and nor should it be–let that be a feature for another model based on the same sensor design.”

In summary if Olympus is working on a model belove the E-P1 and that model will probably not be bigger in size…Zone-10 may be right and Olympus is working on a “compact E-P1” with non interchangeable lenses! A cheaper Leica X1 copy?

(FT3) Olympus MicroFourThirds announcement on October 31th

Share

A dpreview forum user says.

I received several Olympus mailshots today about their presence at the third annual Utrecht photo fair (Dutch website http://www.zoomexperience.nl) which happens to be taking place on the weekend of October 31 / November 1. No such e-mails in previous years so perhaps they’re doing something bigger there this year – go spend your 8 euros for a chance of seeing the first (wood, black leather or whatever) mock-up of that Ex or EPy !
