Olympus has formally revealed that it will launch its new flagship E-System DSLR on Wednesday, 17th October. Olympus first displayed a prototype mock-up (see below) of a proposed model to replace the four year old E-1 a year ago at the Photokina trade show in Germany.
Olympus has been running teasers concerning the identity and release of the new model for several months and prototypes have been seen at various events, including PMA 2007 in Las Vegas.
No doubt, Olympus fans will be relieved to hear that a formal launch date has been agreed. a new premium range 12-60mm (24-120) standard zoom is also expected to be detailed, which should be interesting as it will be one of the first new generation of Olympus Digital Zuiko lenses that features SWD (Supesonic Wave Drive) autofocus.
