We got information from a trusted rumor website that Olympus does not seems to be in a mood to discontinue its pen line rather the company is planning to reintroduce the pen line into the camera market with a few new pen cameras. The new cameras will be designed in slight different way than the traditional pen cameras. However the management contradicts the mass production as it believes that it will be a huge risk.
The rumored message from43rumor sources:
“The pen line isn’t discontinued, rather it’s being taken back to it’s roots. One of the mockups has the sensor in a portrait orientation like the original film pens, the space saved by the shutter traveling sideways rather than vertically allowing a viewfinder above it (still in the center line of camera, which is hard to do with the vertical running shutter, almost all other mirrorless have the EVF on the left hand edge or a hump because of it)”
