Micro Four Thirds cameras continue to shrink, with the leaked Olympus EPM1 PEN
This looks like a pretty solid leak from Olympus, showing a new slimline Micro Four Thirds camera to be launched on June 30th. The camera is called the EPM1, and it looks to be an answer to Panasonic shrinking GF series of Micro Four Thirds cameras.
Like the GF3, the EPM1 is tiny, more in line with compacts like the XZ1 (also pictured above) than Olympus’ previous PEN cameras. It has a touch screen for control (losing some mechanical buttons in the process), stero mics for video recording and apparently has super-fast AF.
According to 43 Rumors’ source, there will be two more PEN cameras launched along with the EPM1, as well as some new lenses: a 12mm ƒ2.0 and a 45mm ƒ1.8. I can’t wait.
