Olympus to intro weatherproof camera in February?
A new rumor originating from 43rumors maintains that Olympus will release a new weather-resistant Four Thirds camera with an integrated viewfinder next month. Next week's CES will be skipped altogether and the camera will instead be revealed between February 6 and 11. That same week is also supposed to mark the reveal of a new Fujifilm camera system with a recently patented integrated viewfinder and an organic sensor.
The news purportedly comes from a reliable source, although this doesn't necessarily make it true. At the same time, it's believed the camera will ship with a 12-50mm kit lens launched just weeks ago that's already on sale in some stores, priced at about $500.
