If there was, it would have been written about here already.

thre are things about E3/P1 that we know
we know its 10-12Mp
we know it has IS
we know its weathersealed
its thought to have a frame rate in RAW of 5-7fps
AF will have more focussing point, 12-14
pretty certain the iso capacity will go to iso3200
it has a grip, not sure if tha comes with it
and tilt LCD with LiveView

We also know sometime this year. I think it's supposed to be in the fall. I don't think we really know if that means August, September, October....

Actually, August is NOT the Fall, it's the Summer. The Fall extends from LATE September until 4 days before Christmas.

Don't confuse the issue with facts. :roll:

Most people consider anytime after Labour day to be fall as that's when school starts...summertime is OVER! Actually, so is late August since that's when you start buying school supplies. :?

When you went to school didn't you consider summer to be over once you started getting ready for school? :G

In this case, there do seem to be alot of people hoping the fall does start in August.

Mike

Now that was funny.. I don;t wanna gooo school ... i remember those days as if they were just yesterday :G :?.

Talking about the fall .. I think its already here in the UK, tonights its going to be just 2degress Celcius so that should mean that Oly release the specs and the E3 by the end of the week :idea:

On a serious note - there's isnt any real specs on teh E3 at all - we're all kind of guessing that its going to be at least a 10-12MP cam, IS etc but until Oly say this is it we're still in the dark.

Cheers

i think there is to be 2 months between each model rollout
that would mean E-510 in June, seems like thats ready to go

510 will create a lot of pressure in sales, and there is still the E-410 metering issue to patch up, that should be a firmware fix.

assuming all goes well, P1/E3 in August

We also don;t know which part of the pro market Oly are targetting with the E1+. Is it the semi-pro D200/Fuji S5, the canon 1D MKIII or even the 1Ds, etc ? My own thoughts are that the E1+ is going to be pitched between D200/Fuji S5 and the 1D MKIII. From first reviews the 1D MKIII is a pretty impressive beastie even at 10MP and we may see an update to the D200 somepoint this year but thats just a hunch on my part.

Cheers
