Sources suggest E-P5 to be announced on May 9th, 10th
Images for an upcoming mirrorless camera from Olympus have leaked online. The shots of the PEN E-P5 camera have also been supplemented by a separate leak describing its specifications, including its 16-megapixel sensor being similar to the E-M5, and improvements made to its autofocus and five-axis stabilization.
The photographs from Mobile01 show off the E-P5's retro features, as well as its concealed flash and rear display, which appears able to swing out on a hinge and pivot for a more useful viewing angle. The specifications from 43rumors claim the E-P5 will have a burst mode of five frames per second, a maximum shutter speed of 1/8000 of a second, and that the rear display will buck the OLED trend and will be a 1.04 million-dot touchscreen LCD screen. It will also have focus peaking and built-in Wi-Fi connectivity.
It is believed that Olympus may officially reveal the camera on May 9th or May 10th.
