Claims faster autofocus than Panasonic GH2
A photo of the Olympus PEN mini E-PM1 has been leaked to 43 Rumors. The new Micro Four Thirds format camera compares in size with the Olympus XZ-1, being slightly larger in width and comparable height and depth. Olympus has promised the new PEN camera will feature an ultrafast autofocus that the company says is faster than the Panasonic GH2 AF and many DSLR cameras on the market today.
The E-PM1 PEN will also have a touchscreen and a new imaging engine and sensor. Improved circuitry should deliver reduced power consumption and increased battery life.
The Olympus E-PM1 PEN will have its official unveiling on June 30. [via 43 Rumors]
