Visitors to Olympus’ UK Facebook page were met with some “BREAKING NEWS!!” on Friday. According to the post, the camera maker is developing a new DSLR that would theoretically offer focusing performance on par with the OM-D, while providing native compatibility with the company’s high-end Zuiko Digital ED lenses, such as the 90-250mm f/2.8. We reached out to Olympus reps in the US, who added the following:
“A new camera body is currently under study to complement our line of Zuiko Digital Specific Four Thirds lenses. However, Olympus has NOT issued a press release on this new camera body.”
With Photokina just a month away, it’s unclear whether or not this new mystery DSLR will make its debut there, but it’s certainly a possibility. As for looks — that’s anyone’s guess, though the company’s social media arm opted to include a picture of the E-5, which serves as Olympus’ current full-size flagship. You’ll find the full Facebook post at the source link below.
