range of accessories of And-System
• Dimensions: 136 xs 91.5 xs 56 mm

From the images I'd say the E510 looks like the E410 but with a bulked up grip, prism and with IS. The grip itself looks as if its been added on afterwards. Both cam's looks as if theyre using a "new" 10MP Pana LiveMos sensor. Overall the specs don;t look bad at all but I personally don;t like the styling of the E510 much.

Cheers

Am I missing it, or is there no mention of anything regardingthe AF system (how many points/improved?).

Looks like we still need to wait until Monday to get more specifics.

Hi Greg

Yeah i didn't see any mention of an improved AF system at all which is really suprising as you'd think that would be a pretty important improvement to the system and somethign that Oly would want to shout about. I'm kind of hankering to see what the E1P really looks like and if they've gone radical with the design.

Now I 'm wondering whether we'll see a new PanaLeica cam esp with the new sensor ? I doubt whether we'll see an L1/D3 replacement until late next year as they have stated before that the top of the range cameras (LC1/L1) are on a 2 year product development cycle.

May be its me but theres soemthign nto right about those images - looking at the oly offical 3 cam shots - the middle cam should be a larger than the E410 - bigger more slanted prism and wider either side but those two shots make them near enough the same size apart from the larger grip on the E510. Oh well, may be theyre not and we'll be finding out pretty soon.

Cheers

only says something about AF on the 410
if thats 3 point and the others arnt, thats ok, D40 is only 3 point
notice the IS badge on 510 ?

they are the same moulding modified for 510
economicly that makes sense
they have a new lens 14-42/3.5-5.6
DoF button is welcome

i dont mind the look of 510 really
why the heck would it come out in spain first ?

I'm guessing "auto-focus blocking function" means you can limit the autofocus range so it doesn't hunt all over?

Yup it's just plain old AF lock. Now there's an exciting new feature. :lol:

Actually looking at it, the E-410 looks barely distinguishable from the E-400. The top, around the flash/prism/hotshoe looks a bit different I think, smoother, more rounded. And that list is almost a word for word copy of the "details" off the Olympus site for the E-400. I'm still not 100% sure whether this is a hoax or a real leak, but those pictures look genuine to me. It all looks and sounds about right. The E-510 looks very interesting.

Some things look suspicious with the web site, but I suppose it could also be an "official leak". But it is funny that the one detail that was clear on the official teaser, the tops of the cameras, is the one place where the styling looks completely different on these pictures from the previous model.

they are saying theyve ditched the kodak sensor for a panasonic
which means 3 things to me

panasonic are going to bring out another 4/3 model
the noise profile has changed, but to what
the colour rendering will be different too, but in my view, the panasonic colours are difficult to beat

From what I was told at the roll-out of the E-330, Oly spent a lot of time getting the color right with that camera--which also had a Pany sensor. They wanted to preserve Oly's signature colors and didn't merely sign-off on "panasonic color".
