A brand new Olympus OMD camera may well be on its way according to 43 Rumors. One of the site’s highly trusted sources claims Olympus will launch an “exciting new OMD camera in January,” after which the camera will be displayed at CP+ show in Japan in February.

One would theorize Olympus would simply bring a big update to its aging OMD EM5. However, the same source says the new camera won’t just be an evolution but rather something very different. Otherwise there are very few details, but the possibility of a new camera is very likely as it’s been a very long since we’ve seen a truly new  Olympus camera equipped with a new sensor.

There have also been early reports that Olympus is planning to release a digital version of the Trip 35. If the rumors are true, this would be Olympus first premium compact to go up against the Fujifilm X100 family and Panasonic LX100.
