Joe:2014 marked a full year of shooting exclusively mirrorless.  This is a collection of my 20 favorite images of the year, all shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M5. http://www.lessgearmorephotos.com/20-favorite-photos-2014/

Colby:Just wanted to share this winter-themed video I shot in NYC throughout January.  Filmed entirely on GH4 in FHD 200Mpbs 60p mode and conformed to 24p in post.  Most shots were filmed on either Canon 24-105mm F4 L or 35mm F2 IS lens using Metabones Speedbooster EF to MFT.  Hope you enjoy it.  http://vimeo.com/118384332

Izhar:I’d love you to add to “a bit of everything” this short film shot in anamorphic with the GH4. https://vimeo.com/116503773

Groucho: http://portostreetshooting.blogspot.com/ My name is Ricardo Porto and I shoot strangers in the streets of Porto, Portugal. I’ve been doing it for the last 4 and a quarter years, a hobby turned crusade. I always shoot alone and most of my pictures are posed portraits. I choose people that I find interesting and I ask them for a pic. They usually say yes. I have one camera, one fixed lens, two batteries, one gray card and one lenspen and this is the only gear I use. No backpack, no photo bag, no tripod, no flash, no mega-zoom. I usually walk the same city areas, mainly downtown, but as I like it to be kind of random, I never prepare my photowalk in advance. I publish daily on my blog and all portraits are captioned with the place where they were taken and a brief description of what caught my attention.


Olympus says they are considering to make a “bright super telephoto lens” and other super fast lenses.

The Swedish Magazine Fotosidan (google translation here) interviewed Setsuya Kataoka (General manager Olympus Imaging Corp). And there is some talk about the future Olympus products:

1) Right now Olympus is considering whether to develop a bright super telephoto lens, or a super-telephoto zoom with a little lower brightness.
2) When the pro series is getting full, it may be necessary to develop a bit more specialized or extraordinary lenses, such as lenses with ultra-high brightness.
3) No Tilt Shift lenses are coming
4) Working to update the IS for new astro-photography features.

Let’s go with the f/1.2 and f/1.0 prime lenses Oly! We already saw your patents on those ;)
