Or possibly the leaks have dried up because in the northern hemisphere, it is summer time, and many people are on vacation. I would imagine in later August and/or early September, the leak machine may start up again.The leaks seem to have dried up. If an Aug launch was likely (as some rumours have said), then I'd have expected the leaks to increase not decrease (think about the E-M1x - we had photos of reviewers with the camera weeks before the unveiling). I suspect it's at least Sept now. I wonder how many copies of the E-M5ii they are selling at the moment? I'm guessing that sales of what should be the bread-and-butter mid-range model have been stagnant for a year now, maybe longer. I'm amazed at how long the mk iii is taking to come to fruition.
I did look for photography trade shows where such an announcement might be made, and there seem to be few shows that might be a venue to announce a new camera:
- IFA in Berlin, September 6-11
- IBC in Amsterdaam, September 12-17
- GITEX in Dubai, October 6-10
- CEATEC in Tokyo, October 10-15
- Photo Plus Expo in New York, October 24-26
