According to Olympus, this new camera will be positioned between the E-520 and E-3 and will inherit all the outstanding features of the E-3, such as the high-speed AF system using 11-points-full twin cross sensor and the built-in image stabilisation mechanism with a correction effect up to 5 EV steps. Other highlights include a new and updated feature replacing the splash and dust-proof attributes of the E-3.
The camera will be exhibited as a reference product at Photokina 2008, the world’s biggest trade fair for the photographic and imaging industries, held in Cologne, Germany from September 23 – 28.
The E-System line-up currently includes popular models such as the E-420 and E-520, as well as the flagship E-3. All of these cameras provide digital SLR users with the high quality imaging, superior reliability and exceptional portability.
