Dp Now Hands on E-system DSLR
The fourth and final big announcement at PMA comes from Olympus. Like previous announcements, I've got some camera previews to go along with it.
First, some news on the 4/3 digital SLR system being co-developed by Olympus, Fuji, and Kodak. A prototype will be shown at PMA -- though I don't have any pictures yet. The "real thing" will be announced in June and will ship in late 2003. Items to be shown at PMA include:
300 mm, F2.8 (600mm equivalent)
14 - 54 mm, F2.8 - F3.5 (28 - 108 mm equivalent)
50 mm macro, F2.0 (100 mm equivalent)
50 - 200 mm, F2.8 - F3.5 (100 - 400mm equivalent)
External flash unit
Power Battery Holder
Okay, now onto the cameras you can buy in the near future!
