Re: No new E bodies confirmed direct from Oly
In reply to CollBaxter, Sep 11, 2013

Ok. Went direct again and was told the following:

"The EM1 is the successor of E5 for all Four Thirds lenses.

We are not thinking about releasing another Four Thirds bodies by the end of this year or the near future."

(I have sent a copy to the mods so they can see I am not making this up.)

So there we have it. E series is dead and buried and all the other talk at CES and elesewhere by executives about supporting it etc was just so much hedging of revenue until the kick to the guts was executed!

Like with the move to the 43 mount after OM, the only choice is to live with an adaptor and the new direction/EVF etc, or lump it.

So, an extended hands-on will be the final arbiter.
