I wonder what the new Olympus micro FourThirds camera will look like.
The first glimpse, as sourced from www.omuser.com.
Wow!! A pancake Olympus Digital 17mm F2.8 (Note: there's no Zuiko name there.... I wonder why...)!
I hope this is the real deal!!!
This will be a real cracker in the DSLR camera industry!!! It will be just like the coming of the Olympus OM-1 back in 1971 that shocked the SLR world!!!!
In a celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the legendary Olympus Pen, the upcoming E-P1 as its codename, definitely continues the Pen's DNA.
Also, first sketches of the E-P1 can be seen here. The retro styling will continue the romance of the nostalgic with the technology of now!
The E-P1 is a dynamite pocket rocket that can:
- Fit in the pocket and still look cool
- Capture D-SLR quality images
- Support interchangeable lens system, even with its bigger brother the 4/3
- Capture HD video
- Integrate fully with Panasonic m4/3 system
It is truly a great era in the digital imaging world!
