Olympus Evolt E-620 DSLR postponed in Japan

Mar 11, 2009

Previously announced and is scheduled to set free this weekend in Japan, Olympus has today postponed the only DSLR announced in 2009 so far – Evolt E-620 – to March 20, details of the holdback were not disclosed.

Olympus took the warp off the new Micro 4/3 standard D-SLR a week prior to the PMA 2009, it offers many advance features from E-30 in smaller chassis at nearly half the price. We had a hands-on preview with a series of High ISO images posted here if you are interested.

Presently, US rollout is planned for May while Amazon is already accepting pre-orders with an estimate 3-4 weeks shipping time. We have no further information if the short holdup in Japan will affect US schedule.
