4/3rds keeping optical viewfinder says Olympus Japan

The Amateur Photographer website reports that Toshiyuki Terada, manager of SLR planning for Olympus Tokyo has told AP that 4/3rds will be keeping an optical viewfinder contrary to what has been suggested recently at PMA.

The story is here:

He also confirms that Olympus is working on a successor to the E3 but gave no details.

AP met with Toshi Terada today; I'll be meeting him tomorrow for lunch (he's coming to sunny Hemel!).

Perhaps you could suggest that some of the forum members could test drive their new models before they are launched to give real user feedback
