  • If this have good price, 5-axis ibis, PDAF and a good price, could a a good entry / vlogger camera. Bonus if they make the comeback of the connector for the external EVF and accessories - it could be user for a external XLR module in the upper models, for example.

    But...since the body is clearly a E-PLx with added dials and buttons, I guess this was an already developed old Oly project, with the current 20mp sensor, CDAF, 3-axis IBIS, and no possibility of EVF. Could sell, if the price is very low - the E-PLs always sold well in Japan, probably is their target.

    And looks like that they merged the E-P, E-PL and the Pen-F "lines" in one body (Pen-F because of the front mode dial - looks like very bad news for who were expecting a new Pen-F).

    If fact, is somewhat what Fuji did with the X-E4: merged the X-E, X-M, X-Txxx lines in a lower priced body. Fuji dumbed down the X-E4, JIP improved a little the E-PL.

    The camera is actually not designed for DACH anyway. The target audience is in Japan - the customers for whom the E-PL10 cannot do enough. You don't need viewfinders in Japan. Accordingly, the camera in the rest of the world will retain its exotic status because the planned numbers are manageable - especially those that will get outside of Japan. This is another reason why the marketing machinery in Germany tends to run with slowed-down foam - if customers threaten to buy in masses, you could run into a problem. Because there is no replenishment, the last E-M1II sensors are now installed and since the sensors have not been manufactured for years, there are no replenishments."

  • Yep, the camera is a E-M10 MK IV repackaged and without EVF, primary target is the japanese market.

    Since the E-M10 IV body is 549, guess that this one will be 499.

  • Savings of fifty bucks vs the EM10mk4? Not worth it.

  • It is a dead brand so why spend $500 on it? They are just milking the name for what it is worth before the final nail goes into the coffin.

    Camera had been ready to produce already last year (of course some of factory stuff needed work, but not camera itself).
