The official post E-3 rumour thread

Now that E-3 finally has materialized, this forum needs to pull its act together again and fullfill its real purpose - to spread rumours about new equipment.

Today I spoke to a Oly sales representative who said (and this is true - although we may agree that sales people don't always know what they are talking about) the following:

  • There are two new bodies on the horizon, one on a level between E-3 and E-510 and another above E-3. He loosley indicated/guestimated the new top camera to arrive in 2009, no indication for time on the other. (Could be no more than what anybody else might guess if they were asked what new bodies could possibly be lauched by Oly in the future. However, the informaton were in this case offered without any prompting from my side.)

  • Zooms are mostly done, and now there will be a lot of new primes. (This is in line with other info).

  • A new 25 mm prime soon to arrive will be surprisingly small.

  • The standard grade ultra wide zoom announced on the lens road map for 2008 will be a 10-20 mm (- also in line with what has been reported in other threads). Which is a little disappointing as the arrow on the lens road map gave hope for something even wider than 10 mm.

Anybody prepared to create / put forward a rumour of e.g. when Olympus wil offer a digital auto macro tubus??
