Zuiko and the Coming of Olympus m4/3

I wonder what the new Olympus micro FourThirds camera will look like.

The first glimpse, as sourced from

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:
  1. Fit in the pocket and still look cool
  2. Capture D-SLR quality images
  3. Support interchangeable lens system, even with its bigger brother the 4/3
  4. Capture HD video
  5. Integrate fully with Panasonic m4/3 system
It is truly a great era in the digital imaging world!
