 Post subject: Any E-520 announcement?
PostPosted: Thu Mar 27, 2008 10:42 pm 
Given the recent announcement of the E-420, does anyone know about news of a possible E-520? My main reason for asking is because I was wondering about purchasing an E-510 in what could be between 6 and 12 months time, and with an E-520 on sale, 510 prices will obviously fall.

No announcements as yet - a June 08 release was rumoured but this is doubtful.

Sneak peek of what is supposed to be a prototype here. Not even a model name on it.

In Japanese but....eerily similar to the E510

That could just as well be an E-510 or am I mistaken?

They also changed that on the E-420 so colour blind people can read all the symbols

The knobs have different knurls than mine and the Olympus moniker has moved on the screen.
Interesting to find that some E-510's out there have blue markings, mine is green.
