When Olympus gave us a sneak preview of its latest DSLRs in its E series, the E-410 and E-510, we wondered what happened to the flagship of the line, the E-1. Olympus isn't giving any specifics, but today revealed a few teasing tidbits of information, saying the successor to the E-1 "will make its debut this year."


Olympus also said the E-1 will have the Fulltime Live View function, just like the E-410 and E-510, and added there will be unspecified "tremendous improvements in both performance and functionality, taking the excellent picture quality, mobility and reliability of the E-1 to new and unprecedented levels."

So in other words, it looks like Olympus missed a target or two, and wants to give itself nine months to roll out this camera. We're not holding our breath.
