Olympus E-PL7 to be Announced Within the Month

By Anthony Thurston on May 5th 2014

According to the latest rumor out of the Olympus camp, a new E-PL7 will be announced within the next month. The report over on 43 Rumors states that the new PEN E-PL7 will feature the same 16Mp sensor used by the OMD-10, as well as 81 AF points, 8 fps and 3″ vari-angle touch LCD screen.


Nothing special, but a nice update over the current PEN E-Pl5 model. There is no rumored pricing yet, but the current model is currently priced around $500 most places, so I would expect a price somewhere around there.

I have never personally been too interested in many of the Olympus cameras, there are just too many other brands out there that have had my attention. But this E-PL7 seems to be a nice little camera, something I would enjoy taking on family outings and such.

What are your thoughts on this rumored E-PL7? What specs would you like to see, what do you think we will see? Share your thoughts below.

    I’d love one of these.

    To be honest, what has kept me away from brands like this, and samsung (for examples) have been like the lack of variety with video frame rates. Usually just 30fps. The form factor is great though.
