The new GX camera rumors really has stolen the show from Olympus. But trust me, thatís going to be a strong and intriguing rumor battle! In these last few days I got two rumors from sources I know from a long time. Both told me that they got hints about a new high end Olympus camera that will be announced in September. And itís going to be a camera much larger than the current E-M5 that has a mount that allows to take both Four Thirds and Micro Four Thirds lenses without the use of any adapter!
This appeared in the 43 Rumors this morning. I am sure if you one of those who already own some good FT lenses you will be thrilled with this development ... but what if you don't i.e. would you consider getting one? I would ... if the larger body is a significant improvement/upgrade over the OM-D. It would be fantastic if the larger body (more ergonomic and comfortable to hold?) comes with an improved sensor (lower noise, higher DR, etc), PDAF focus tracking, a larger and a hybrid EVF/OVF, etc ... and these features are not improbable I think. It is a foregone conclusion that it will have ISO 100, max shutter speed of 1/8000 sec or higher, 1/320 sec flash sync, improved IBIS, auto HDR bracketing, WiFi capability, intervalometer, etc, etc ... as we are already seeing this feature set on the new E-P5.
