Olympus to launch new flagship compact with Zuiko lens


**A mock-up of the new Olympus compact.

FROM OUR EDITORS AT PHOTOKINA: Olympus confirmed that it will be launching a new flagship compact camera that incorporates a Zuiko lens, although no name has been given yet for this new camera.

The Zuiko-brand traditionally has been reserved for only Olympus’ top-of-the-line lenses. The new camera is said to offer many of the features seen previously in the PEN E-P2 and the E-PL1.  It should available some time in 2011.

Stay tuned as more information comes in from our editors at Photokina in Cologne Germany on this new compact.
