Olympus E-P1 Micro Four Thirds.

No, you're not crazy. Er, you might be, but not solely because you just know that Olympus has already outed a camera with an E-P1 model name. Turns out, the camera outfit decided the shelve that codename and settle on the E-3, but evidently it's time to bust said moniker back out. If the above image is to be believed, the new E-P1 is a Micro Four Thirds shooter, complete with a 17mm f/2.8 lens. Only time will tell if this thing's really on the way out, but considering just how infatuated Olympus seems to be with MFT, we wouldn't be shocked to see it get the official seal of authenticity here soon.

Update: Seems Olympus is having some kind of Micro Four Thirds announcement on June 16th. Wonder what that could be for? Thanks, Howard!

Photorumors posted a front view of the camera which is close to the real one but not exact. There are some small differences to the real one. We are looking to get a real front view picture.

  1. Great post! Since you're into Micro Four Thirds like me, I thought you might want to check out this "Will It Blend?" video where they throw an Olympus E-620 DSLR and a Stylus point-and-shoot into a blender. Seems like they're trying to get DSLR image quality into a point-and-shoot body. That's what Olympus is promising with their Micro Four Thirds camera.
