LEAKS! Olympus E-PL2 (M43rds) and XZ1 (serious compact) picture-leaked

Hooray! A new season of leaking is underway! 43Rumors has two Olympus leakages! First up, the promised Olympus serious compact camera, which according to the 43rumors leak will be using a 28-112mm f1.8-2.5 lens. That's what the lens says, f1.8-2.5, not a typo! The rumor says it will be using the same 10mp sensor as the Panasonic LX5. There is a hot-shoe in the picture but no mention of Zuiko on the visible parts of the lens, but it could be hiding in the lower left corner if it follows the mockup arrangement.

Next up, a rumor-leak of a new Olympus E-PL2 Micro Four Thirds camera has leaked at 43rumors. It is a creamy color pattern and will have the new movie-friendly kit lens and a bluetooth hot-shoe mount module for picture-sharing. Judging by this, it looks like the E-PL1s will likely remain a Japan-only product.

The leaked XZ1 is discussed in this dpreview Olympus forum thread.
