Olympus’ sleek new E-P5 flagship Micro Four Thirds camera will be officially announced on the morning of May 10 (next Friday), and will hit store shelves in June. A possible price floating around is $1,000 with a kit lens, but that may be “too good to be true.”
New photos of the upcoming Olympus E-P5 have been published over on Chinese forum Mobile01.

Today, the company revealed even more details about the lenses, which are branded “Touit,” publishing specs, product pages, and sample photographs.

Lytro is seeing more and more competition these days, as more and more companies are jumping into the “snap now, focus later” game. There are now apps that mimic the technology, and companies like Toshiba are working on building Lytro-style smartphone camera modules.
Lytro’s latest challenger may be quite a formidable foe: it appears that Nokia has invested in Pelican Imaging, another startup that’s working on building Lytro-style smartphone camera arrays.
