A new Olympus E-M10 photo showed up on the web alongside the new compact zoom lens which will feature an auto-closing lens cap.
There is no secret that Olympus is working on a new Micro Four Thirds camera that will be announced on January 29. The rumor mill has revealed many details about the upcoming event, as well as about the products that will be unveiled next week.
Beside gossip, inside sources have managed to snatch a few photos of the E-M10 camera, which have been leaked on the web for the whole world to see.
We have promised that more information will be unearthed before the January 29 announcement and now we are here to deliver on that promise.
New Olympus E-M10 photo shows the system behind the auto-closing cap of the 14-42mm lens
Another Olympus E-M10 photo is now circling around the web. It shows the silver model in combination with the 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 lens. The shot proves that users can attach a cap on the lens, which automatically opens and closes when the camera is turned on and off, respectively.
A similar technique is used by the new Olympus Stylus 1, a compact camera that sports a lens with an auto-closing cap. From what the rumor mill has told us, the automatic cap will be sold separately, so users will have to pay extra for this minor feature.
The entry-level OM-D camera is believed to feature the same E-M5 sensor (but without Phase Detection Autofocus support), tri-axis image stabilization, built-in flash, integrated electronic viewfinder, and True Pic VII image processing engine.
Its body-only price tag is said to stand somewhere around $770, which means that it will be cheaper than both the E-M1 and E-M5.
Olympus set to announce Elite Black version of the E-M5 camera on January 29 as well
Less than 24 hours ago, sources familiar with the matter have revealed that Olympus will also unveil a new E-M5 camera. It seems like the specifications will be identical to those of the current model, but the Micro Four Thirds shooter will sport a new paint job and body texture.
The new details confirm that it will be called Elite Black and will be sold in a bundle with a novel version of the 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO lens. However, the retail price still needs to be determined.
