There is no Olympus X-E1 :)


Not only the E-M5 sensor but also the EVF is very good according to LL.

Good Morning!
Let’s start the week by pointing out an error: Got many emails from readers because Luminus Landscape wrote that they tested an “Olympus X-E1“. Actually the camera they are talking about is the Fuji X-E1 :)

There is one small interesting info within that article that reviews the new A99 FF camera. They write that “in the EVF category we thought that the Olympus was superior in terms of clarity and refresh rate“. So it’s superior to the $2800 new Sony A99 Full Frame viewfinder. This is just to say that resolution (where the A99 is better) is not the only measure to take into the account when talking about electronic viewfinders quality.

E-M5 at Amazon, Adorama, B&H, Jessops, Amazon UK, Amazon Germany, Amazon France, Amazon Japan and Digitalrev.

E-M5 Case:
There is the official CS-36FBC Olympus case. A leather half case from Hong Kong. A full leather case with strap from Cina. Than we have half cases from two well known producers, Zelenpol, Kaza and Gariz.

E-M5 Batteries, and other things:
The Olympus GS-4 strap and the DSTE E-M5 batteries you have to use with an extra charger. There is an E-M5 car charger a new E-M5 LCD screen and a Front Cover+ Top Panel.

A Micro Four Thirds database overview (by Eric)

43rumors reader Eric created a MFT database some of you might find useful to check out and use. This is his original mail sent to me this week:

Eric:This spreadsheet helps me keep track of all the MFT lenses and how they relate to each other, so I can try to do a better job of picking-the-next-lens than I have in the past.
I don’t know what other people use, if anything, but I thought someone might find these useful.

E-PL5 shipment from October 12th. New Olympus Interview (there is no unprocessed RAW conversion)

The japanese site Kakaku reports that the new E-Pl5 will start to ship from October 12th. It will ship in EU and US one week later (Bhphoto says Oct. 23th). And our australian readers can now preorder the E-PL5 at Digidirect.

There is also a new Olympus interview at DSLRmagazine (Tranlsation here). The first interesting news that olympus admits that there is now “clean” RAW file conversion. It means that all processed RAW files are actually modifying the image  “especially with regard to distortion control“. DSLRmagazine also shows you in the article how the RAW processing works.
