(FT2) 14-40mm f/2.8 and 300mm f/4.0 lens from Olympus?

The Olympus Zuiko 12-60mm f/2.8-4.0 FT lens.

As you know rumors are circulating around a possible 40-150mm f/2.8 lens (P.S:: not confirmed by any of my trusted sources). But many of you said that a fast zoom in many ways similar to the Olympus Zuiko 12-60mm f/2.8-4.0 FT lens would also be welcome. I haven’t heard anything form my trusted sources yet some forum user at Fredmiranda wrote that:

A little birdy told me that, in addition to the 40-150 f/2.8, there will also be a ~14-40ish f/2.8 coming next year, as well as a 300 f/4. The birdy said that the 300 will be about as long as the 75-300, but larger in diameter – no idea how it can be that tiny, but that’s what I was told.

Can’t guarantee on the reliability…but I hope that bird is a real source :)

Amazon is shipping the first GH3 cameras today!

next good news today! A couple of readers just informed me that Amazon shipped their preordered GH3 camera today! Right now the item is marked as “Temporarily out of Stock” (Click here to see). If you preordered the camera at BHphoto they will ship it soon (December 5th). And as I told you before it is also shipping in Europe via  via Wex Germany and Wexphotographic UK. It’s the first time since I work on 43rumros that that Panasonic delivers the camera in time!

One more deal: Panacam is selling the 12-35mm X lens for $1030 via Amazon (Click here).

Some remaining Cyber Monday deals. New Jackar lens in Stock.

There are still some residual Cyber Monday deals left at Amazon (Click here to see them). And also the Panasonic G3 with lens for $299 at Bhphoto (Click here) deal is still onogin. One thing that surprised me is to see that the Nikon 1 cameras are the most sold mirrorless stuff during these days (here is the ranking). It did beat all the rest of the Sony/Olympus/Fuji/Panasonic deals. Nikon does nice cameras but the Nikon 1 is in my eyes a sub average system. So I am wondering if someone can explain me why they did sell so well in these days…

Anyway, let’s go back to the new Jackar 34mm f/1.8 lens that is now for sale for the first time on eBay (Click here). I have been told by the makers that the design of the lens is actually almost the same of current $40  C-mount 35mm lenses. Jackar informed us that they changed some material, finishing, the ring is larger and turning has been improved. Plus the lenses are multi-coated and of course mount is NEX. Of course what you also get is that lens hood and genuine leather case you see on the picture.
