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.
