YouTuber Red35 just put out a video titled "Olympus OM-D E-M1 IV & PEN-F II," with a subtitle "It's here, the hyped up flagship and street master cameras are on my hand, first impression is here."

Well, I guess I'm stupid and should have known better (I did wonder if it was click-bait, but I forgot the date today). Well, I believed it for about 3 minutes and was starting to get excited before it registered in my brain. It was a VERY annoying (to me) April Fools joke. I think the guy is an a--hole.

Aren't the best April Fools jokes the ones you believe first? Of course there has to be something that makes it possible to realize it.

In this case I think it's that Olympus wouldn't announce or release two expensive bodies at the same time.

Yes, it certainly operated as an effective April Fools joke. I guess I just don't like such things...

If it makes you feel better, I also fell for an April Fools joke this morning which I shared with full and honest excitement, only to be remembered by others what date it is. :whistling:

However I agree, sparking up honest excitement about the fabled Pen-F Mark II ain't funny at all! Only gets loyal users' already lost hopes up. :cautious:

Come on, Rich, you're just sore that you fell for it. Don't be such a grouch.

I think Mr. Cheng did a great job of selling the gag. He drops a few clues early on, e.g. he wants to show them "especially today, right? It's an important day." The specs he lists, particularly the 40MP sensor, are like a fanboy's dream.

Wow! A 40MP sensor! :2thumbs:

Finally something that can live up to the resolution of that $7,500 150-400mm zoom lens!

:hiding: & :flypig:

I didn't actually listen to the entire thing, once I realized it was an April 1 joke. You're right, I shouldn't be such a grouch. :)
