(UPDATED) Olympus/Panasonic US deals. Macbook Retina for photographers.

My four year old Macbook Pro is pretty much damaged because of the intense traveling and I am happy that Apple announced something “special” for us photographers. The new Macbook Pro with Retina display has the very likely best screen for photographers with a huge 2880 x 1880 Native Resolution. I am used to work on my over 100 Megapixel Mamiya 7 files so this is still not enough for me :) Anyway, I already preordered mine and you can preorder yours on apple stores or at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here) and Bhphoto (Click here).

That said here is a list of updated Olympus/Panasonic deals. We are getting closer to the new cameras and lens release in late August and I expect moge and more deals coming soon. All that stuff has the lowest price ever (Click on it to see the product page on Amazon): Olympus E-PL1, Panasonic GH2, Panasonic 45-175mm, Panasonic 14-140mm, Panasonic 14-42mm, Panasonic X 14-42mm, Olympus 14-42mm, Olympus 40-150mm. Full lens rebate page at BHphoto. And Nokton 17.5mm in Stock at Amazon and Bhphoto.

Panasonic 12-35mm preorder option back. GX1 new low price.


Last week we had quite a heart attack when we heard that Amazon deleted some of the 12-35mm lens preorders. I had the fear we would have to wait a much longer time than expected to get the lens in our hands. A small good news is that preorder option is now back at Amazon US (Click here). Speaking of little good news. There is a new low price record ($774) on the GX1 with X lens and plenty of accessories at Adorama (Click here). For $782 at Amazon (Click here) and the GH2 with kit lens is back at $799 again at Amazon (Click here).

Reminder: New Oly/Pana Lens Preorders in Europe, USA and Asia:
Olympus 75mm lens at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto, Amazon Germany and Amazon UK.
Panasonic 12-35mm X lens at Amazon, BHphoto, Adorama, Amazon Germany, Amazon UK, Amazon Japan and Digitalrev.

Olympus E-M5 in Stock at Amazon. Free case in Europe! (+great Venus shots and new reviews)

At the moment of posting this the E-M5 with 14-42mm lens is in Stock at Amazon US (Click here). And Amazon UK (Click here) and Amazon FR (Click here) are offering a free case along the E-m5. That said let’s talk about the magical event from yesterday when Venus did cross over the Sun. You can find some great E-M5 shot of that event at Footlessfish. Amazing! Now you have to wait over 100 years to see that again!

Some new E-M5 tests:
First impressions by Richard Chomko at TheOnlinePhotographer: “All in all the OM-D is a fun camera to use. It has just about all the features you’d want in an everyday carry around camera, aside from maybe a Leica M style range/viewfinder. But with its tilt screen, in-camera stabilization, built-in eye level finder, state of the art high ISO performance, vast range of Micro 4/3 lens options, retro styling and ergonomic functionality, it’s easily worth the $1,000 price to me.
E-M5 review at “No doubt there will be better cameras in the future. The OM-D E-M5 though will allow you to skip the next upgrade cycle. That camera’s here to stay for a while. Pair it with the best glass available — good glass lasts a lifetime — and you can happily ignore what camera makers come up with for quite some time.
Norwegian review at Focus Numerique posted the E-M5 hands.on (including sound check).

E-M5 (Pre)order links (Click on store name):
Amazon, Adorama, B&H, Jessops, Amazon UK, Amazon Germany, Amazon France, Amazon Japan and Digitalrev. Cheap third party E-M5 batteries on eBay (Click here).
