The E-P5′s controls have undergone somewhat of a change from the layout of the E-P3‘s controls. And to confirm the model name, note the branding in the top image (see bottom right corner) with the model ‘E-P5′ inscribed on the camera. [Read more...]

Olympus PEN E-P5 Leaks Out

Olympus E-P5

After yesterday’s teaser from Olympus of a new PEN camera due out in early May, the Olympus E-P5 appears to have leaked out ahead of its official announcement. As previously rumored, it closely resembles the design of the old Olympus PEN F.

The Olympus PEN E-P5 is expected to be announced by May 11, 2013. The camera is rumored to feature the same 16MP sensor as found in the Olympus OM-D E-M5. Additional rumors suggest an improved AF speed that will best the highly-regarded E-M5.

Personally, I think this is one very attractive camera – even more so if the AF speed is as fast as rumored.
