Olympus UK Micro Four Thirds interest...

If you haven't yet seen it on the home page here, there is a new ad being run by Olympus UK inviting everyone interested to register interest in the Olympus Micro Four Thirds launch next month.

It's alternating with the E-620 ad, so you may need to refresh the page a once or twice to see it.

Vibes I'm getting from Olympus are that the Olympus Micro Four Thirds design is something special and they are very excited about it.

Ian

Must try asking for a "MAIKUROFOSAZU" next time I'm in a sushi bar - I'm sure it's tasty

Looking forward to seeing what they come up with Olympus has probably produced more than their fair share of classics in the past.

Re: Olympus UK Micro Four Thirds interest...

I notice that in AP there's an ad for Park Cameras featuring an Olympus Micro Four Thirds evening in early July! Is this an indication of the launch date?

There are so many rumours for June 15/16 as the launch date that I can not believe they are ALL wrong. However early July might be the date to get demonstration copies into a few shops

Re: Olympus UK Micro Four Thirds interest...

Hi Ian

With the launch approaching fast, are there likely to be any launch events us UK group members could attend?

Cheers
