The successor of the Olympus E-5 will support both Micro Four Thirds and Four Thirds lenses


In interview with Quesabesde, Miguel Angel Garcia (CEO of Olympus Spain) confirmed that in 2013 the company will release an E-5 successor that will support both Micro Four Thirds and Four Thirds lenses. No other details on the new camera were provided. This is nothing new - Olympus executives made similar statement earlier this year and even released an official statement indicating that they are working on a new Four Thirds pro body.

The Olympus E-5 was announced on September 14, 2010 and currently sells for $1,499.

    I take this as meaning a pro version of the OM-D. And I think that is a very smart move.

  • i don’t get it. the current lineup do support old 4/3 lens, via an adaptor.

      So will this new camera. But it will probably feature an on sensor phase detect AF system that will achieve fast continuous AF with both m43 and classic 43 lenses.

        Or even a Visoflex or Sony LA-EA2 kind of adapter. (with mirror)
