Evidence of the Olympus PEN E-PL7 Micro Four Thirds camera’s existence has been leaked on the web and it consists of a few images taken from the device’s manual.

At the beginning of May 2014, inside sources have begun talking about a new Olympus Micro Four Thirds camera that would be added to the PEN line-up.

Immediately after the first gossip talks, a preliminary list of Olympus PEN E-PL7 specs has been leaked, too. Now it is time to take it one step further, as an anonymous source has decided to reveal a few shots grabbed from the mirrorless camera’s product manual, giving us a glimpse of what the device will look like when it becomes official.

The leaked Olympus PEN E-PL7 manual photos are hinting that the Micro Four Thirds camera will be almost identical to its predecessors, the PEN E-PL6 and PEN E-PL5.

The former was announced in Japan sometime last year. However, it has managed to show up at Amazon in limited quantities. On the other hand, the E-PL5 was also launched on US soil in the fall of 2012.

Amazon is selling the E-PL6 for a price around $620, while the E-PL5 costs about $450 at the same retailer.

Micro Four Thirds fans are not expecting major design differences between the E-PL7 and the cameras that came before it. The leaked manual shots meet their expectations by revealing that the new PEN model will have a similar design to its forerunners, as stated above.

Quick recap of the rumored Olympus PEN E-PL7 specs list

On the specs side, the Olympus PEN E-PL7 will feature a 16.05-megapixel Micro Four Thirds sensor, 3-inch articulated LCD touchscreen with a 1,040,000-dot resolution, and a burst shot mode of up to 8fps.

The autofocus system will consist of 81 points, while the ISO sensitivity will range between 200 and 25,600. A stereo microphone will be useful in case users want to record full HD videos with high-quality audio, while the storage will be provided by either one of the SD/SDHC/SDXC, UHS-I, or Eye-Fi cards.

The new PEN camera will offer a flash sync speed of 1/250 seconds and will come packed with WiFi, allowing users to connect to a smartphone or tablet in order to share photos. Additionally, a shutter speed range of 60 seconds to 1/4000th of a second will complete the exposure settings.

An exact announcement date has not been given, but the E-PL7 should become official in the following two to three weeks.
