Olympus PEN E-PL7 Leaks Out


This is the first leaked photo of the upcoming Olympus PEN E-PL7. The camera is expected to be announced on August 30 and should replace the aging Olympus PEN E-PL5 in the US. (The PEN E-PL6 was an Asian market-only camera.)

Based on previously leaked portions of the user manual, the camera is believed to feature a 16MP Micro Four Thirds sensor with an 81-point AF system. Note that the design adds a dial around the shutter button similar to the OM-D camera designs.
