Rumored First Picture of Olympus E-P5 Continues Vintage Design Trend

The very first picture of what is purported to be Olympus's upcoming E-P5 mirrorless camera has surfaced, and has more of the retro touches we have come to expect know and love.


Move the arrows on the slider above from left to right to see a P5 / PEN-F comparison. When the slider is on the right, you're looking at the rumored E-P5.

The E-P5 succeeds 2011's popular E-P3 micro four-thirds camera. Clearly Olympus is running with the success of its throwback design philosophy. This time it's taking cues from the PEN-F models from the 1960s.

Details are still slim, but 43rumors is reporting that the P5 will borrow the 16 megapixel sensor from the E-M5 and PL-5, while improving an already great auto-focus system. It will come with the new 17mm f/1.8 as its kit lens. No word yet on price or availability, but expect an Olympus announcement in the next few weeks or so. [43rumors]
