Olympus' Camera Lacks Interchangeable Lenses, But Will Be New Compact Flagship

Early next year Olympus will be selling a new flagship compact camera.

Their claim about it being their new flagship compact camera seems a little strange when you consider their PEN series, but perhaps they're trying to say this will be even more compact—it certainly doesn't have the interchangeable lenses their micro four thirdscameras use, anyway. It will have an accessory port for attaching accessories like their SEMA-1 microphone adapter and presumably an electronic viewfinder.

It seems like a pretty solid device, but lacking interchangeable lenses might hurt it's sales.

As a photojournalist, I can say that a compact camera like this one (we call them point-'n-shoots), does not need a removable lens.

For a hobbyist, interchangeable lenses are a little beyond their means, and for a professional, they would likely carry a DSLR they can swap lenses on as needed, and carry this thing as a easily-deployable backup.

Too fancy for a duffer like me.

Meh. A camera is a camera is a camera; I don't have any problems with what I have right now.

Alixander said...

Seems like it would meet up to its intended purpose. I probably wont be getting one though.
