Olympus has announced that it is developing a new interchangeable-lens digital SLR (single lens reflex) within the Olympus E-System lineup. This new Four Thirds-compliant camera reinforces the company’s commitment to the standard.

Positioned as a mid-level model, this new digital SLR camera is intended for anyone who wants to express their creativity through photography, whether they are just starting out or are a professional with years of experience behind them. Introduction of the new camera is expected in the first quarter of 2009.

At the last Photokina (September 2006), Olympus declared that the second chapter in the story of the Olympus E-System would begin in 2007. One of the highlights of this chapter was the incorporation of “Full-Time Live View” function as a standard function for the first time in the industry, adding to the excitement already generated by other distinctive features of the E-System such as the “100 percent Digital-Dedicated Design” and “Dust Reduction System.” Currently, the E-System lineup 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 images, superior reliability and exceptional portability they need.

The prototype model displayed at Photokina is being developed as an advanced amateur model that will be positioned between the E-520 and E-3. In terms of quality and performance, however, there is nothing mid-level about this model. It will inherit all the outstanding features of the E-3 such as the high-speed autofocus system using an 11-point full twin-cross sensor and the built-in image stabilization mechanism with a correction effect of up to 5 EV steps1. Other highlights will include a new and updated feature to replace the current splash and dustproof function of the E-3.


With the introduction of this new camera, Olympus will expand its line of Four Thirds System-compliant digital SLR cameras, providing a wider range of choices to a wider range of users from serious amateurs to professionals.
