(FT4) Only two PEN cameras at Photokina (FT3) E-Px line to be discontinued?


[shoplink 23568][/shoplink]

According to two sources Olympus will announce two new PEN cameras at Photokina in September. And I am still not sure but it sounds like the E-Px line will be discontinued. The E-Px series started with the glorious [shoplink 28308 ebay]E-P1 (which I still use daily)[/shoplink] and now is represented by the [shoplink 23568]E-P3[/shoplink].

Basically the [shoplink 23567]E-PL3[/shoplink] and [shoplink 23568]E-P3[/shoplink] will merge into one camera. The [shoplink 23565]E-Pm[/shoplink] series will continue to be the cheapest of all Olympus Micro Four Thirds camera series.

Anyway, I don’t think that is all what’s coming from Olympus at Photokina. There may be some other camera suprise…

UPDATE: The author of contacted me to say that actually he thinks the E-PX will get an overhaul next year. My info is that the E-Px system as you know will completely disappear.
