(FT5) Olympus E-P3, E-PL3 and E-PM1 to be announced on June 30th!

本帖最后由 nethunter 于 2011-6-15 22:26 编辑



I am finally 100% sure that Olympus will announce not two but three new PEN cameras! They will all use the same new (Olympus redesigned?) Panasonic sensor (more about the sensor in future posts). And here is a short description of each camera:

1) E-PM1
“M” stays for “Mini”. It is smaller than the Panasonic GF2 (Click here to see it) and a bit bigger than the new Panasonic GF3. The good news is that the mini still maintains the built-in stabilization!

2) E-PL3
It is just a bit wider and thicker than the E-PM1. It’s thicker because for the very first time there is a tilt LCD screen! But it has no built in flash unlike the “older” Olympus E-PL2.

3) E-P3
Has no tilt LCD but gains a built in flash. The advantage over the E-PL3 are the manual controls and body quality. It has almost the same body design as the current Olympus E-P2. No built in viewfinder a là Olympus XA (Click here to see it on eBay).

-

After a first look on those models I can see three problems with the new PEN cameras:
1) E-PM1 is not noticeable smaller than the E-PL3
2) E-P3 is more expensive than the E-PL3 and has no tilt LCD (why?)
3) E-PL3 lost some of the manual controls of the “older” E-PL2 and has no built-in flash.

After chasing many type of MiniDC with high quality for a long time, I almost make my final decision to buy the new DC of Olympus E-P3 which will be announced on June 30th.

During my way to this DC , I once chased the FUJI X100 and Leica X1.

You can check the new DC of Olympus with more detail if you once had the same choosing-experience as mine.

Best wishes.

(FT5) Olympus makes it right! 45mm f/1.8 lens coming and for 299 Euro/Dollars only!

Before your read: We transferred the website on the new website and we are still fixing the comment system. As a non registered member of 43rumors you can write a comment and it will be stored but you will land on an error page after 30 second of nonsense loading. So feel free to comment but you have to be a bit patient if you want go back to the 43rumors website. Thanks for your understanding!

We can long discuss if you like the upcoming PEN or not but one thing is sure, the two upcoming Olympus lenses will be awesome! We already knew for a long time that one of the lenses would be the 12mm f/2.0 High Quality PRO lens. But we were not so sure about the second lens. Some said it would be a 50mm f/1.7 and others told me it would be a 45mm f/1.8. I finally got the right answer! Olympus will announce a new 45mm f/1.8 lens which will cost around 299 Dollars/Euro only! I think that’s an amazing cheap price for a lens that is fast and will have a very good image quality (at least that is what sources told me). It’s not a pancake, it’s a bit bigger lens. It should be very similar (in size) to the just announced Panasonic/Leica 25mm f/1.4 lens (click here to preorder on Adorama!). Wow, Olympus finally is making the lenses we wanted! What I don’t know yet is if the lens is a macro like the famous Olympus 50mm macro lens (Click here to see that lens on ebay). One source told me it is NOT a macro lens but that’s a very weak rumor for now. Reminder, the only Micro Four Thirds macro lens to date is the Panasonic-Leica 45mm f/2.8.

The new three PEN cameras + the two new lenses will be announced on June 30th! Follow us daily. There are still many rumors I am working on! P.S.: The chance is big that there is something more coming (lenses and accessories).

From HK OULINPAI

(FT5) New Oly “tweaked” 12.1 Megapixel sensor
I am still not 100% about some aspects of the new “mysterious” Olympus designed (or tweaked) sensor. What I know for certain is that Olympus kept the promise and will not join the Megapixel race which lead Panasonic to announce cameras with 16Megapixels (for the G3 and GH2). The new sensor has 12.1 Megapixels! I have been told that this is not the same “old” 12 Megapixel sensor which you can find inside the current Olympus PEN cameras. The sensor has been “tweaked” (and some sources say “redesigned”) by Olympus. What that word “tweaked” means is a big and yet unanswered question.

(FT5) Olympus E-P3 specs. It has an interchangeable grip!

From 43rumors:



I still don’t have any E-P3 picture to share with you but I have been told the E-P3 has basically the same design of the E-P2 (see picture on top). But at least I have the specs! Two weeks ago a new source sent me the E-P3 details and my trusted sources now confirmed the info he gave to me are correct (Thanks new source!). So here is the E-P3:

- It has the new Olympus “tweaked” 12 Megapixel Sensor
- Truepic VI engine (two processor in one)
- ISO 100 to 12.800
- 1080i 60frs AVCHD or JPEG video
- 35 point autofocus
- OLED touch Display (610k resolution). Sounds like it is almost the same screen used for the Olympus XZ-1.
- pop up live guide
- dual dials
- fastest AF to date for any mirrorless cam (and I have been told that it is considerably faster that the Panasonic GH2!).
- updated art filters
- effects to combine with art filters (like starlight)
- 3D still images
- Interchangeable grip. I have been told there are two different grips you can buy (and more will come after).
- Design changes: The top dial is now placed instead of the ON/OFF button of the E-P2. To make room for the built-in flash. There is a video recording button over the AEL button.

(FT4-5) All PEN’s with the same new Olympus sensor. AF speed.

From 43rumors:


Our sources do of course read your comments and they send me their answers. Some of my sources are new, some are well known, that’s why you see a different FT ranking (See the ranking explanation on the bottom of the article to learn more).

(FT4) Source_1:
1. the grip is just that – a grip. but it will come in different sizes to support the longer lens.
2. the sensor is Olympus own – its not sharing anything with Panasonic.
3. there is a dedicated, zoom button for zooming in when you are in the green box mode? button location below the record button.
4. flash is remote trigger capable, but no free bounce like Olympus E-PL1.
5. the other two cameras will have bundled external flash that uses the hotshoe+accessory port.
6. the front of the new EPL looks EXACTLY like the Olympus XZ-1 (Click here to see that camera)
7. the 45mm is about as big as the new Panasonic-Leica 25mm f/1.4, maybe a bit more smaller in width.

(FT5) Source_2:
1. All three PEN cameras do have AF assist lamp

(FT5) Source_3:
1. All three cameras do have touchscreen (but only the E-P3 is using the OLED 640k screen. The other two do use a 460k LCD)
2. AF is terrific. Very fast and accurate.

(FT4) Source_4:
1. Old lenses will focus faster on the new Pen cameras (although not as fast as when using new lenses).
2. AF really faster than the Panasonic GH2 (tested in daylight)

(FT5) Source_5:
1. There is no final firmware yet (it’s still 0.9), but I can say images do look better than the GH2.
2. E-PM1 is smaller than Panasonic GF2, but bigger than Panasonic GF3.

(FT5) Source_6:
1. Damn fast AF!
2. E-P3 has same design as E-P2. The E-PM1 and the E-PL2 do have a completely new design.

EP3谍照终于出炉,可信度很高!屏幕变大、增加了对焦辅助灯、内置闪光灯、和录像按键。另外左肩转盘为闪光灯让位,移动到右肩,快门、开关、曝光补偿三键重新布局。麦克风移动到热靴前方。EVF接口不变。45/1.8镜头(可能是)现在有光圈刻度了,而且比想象中还要好看!总之绝对给力啊!外形太骚了!

另外据说12mm的镜头带一个可推拉的嵌套式MF对焦环。在任何位置拉出来,都能看到之前被盖住的焦距刻度尺!酷!
