Olympus has registered a new camera with the code “IM008” in Russia and only the body and two kit lens versions are registered.
This Olympus “IM008” is presumed to be an entry model Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera (Olympus PEN E-PL9 ???) since the registered battery is BLS-50, the same battery as in the E-M10II and E-PL8. And my guess is that this Olympus “IM008” camera will be an PEN E-PL9 (E-PL8 successor) with 4K Video, improved processor and more great features. Of course I will be surprised if this is a high end Pen body.
The official announcement should be in 2018, probably around January CES 2018 or March CP+ 2018.
