Some Leica news…


Leica just released the new Leica V-LUX 20. You pay $699.00 for the Leica version of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7 ($335.34).

MicroFourThirds user will probably be more interested in knowing more about the new Leica Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 (check out leicarumors). Does this mean the “older” Leica 35mm f/1.4 will become cheaper? It’s a Leica! Forget it!

Update your Olympus PEN (the firmware is now here)

http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/oima_slr_penfirmware.asp?intCmp=geto_rdrct_penfirmware

Auto Focus Performance
This update will improve camera AF performance when shooting both stills and videos with the E-P1, E-P2 and E-PL1 cameras when using any Micro Four Thirds or Four Thirds lens. Auto Focus Lock time when shooting stills is improved by 15%. Auto Focus tracking accuracy when shooting movies is also improved.

Viewfinder/LCD Simultaneous Playback Function
This upgrade also brings additional display functionality to the E-P2 and E-PL1 cameras when fitted with the VF-2 Electronic Viewfinder. Photographers using these combinations can now view menu and recorded images on the LCD while the VF-2 Electronic Viewfinder is in use.

Movie-Still-Compatible (MSC) Lens Compatibility
This update also ensures that like the E-PL1, the E-P1 and E-P2 camera models are fully compatible with and able to take advantage of two recently announced and soon-to-reach market lenses; the M. Zuiko Digital™ ED 9–18mm F4.0–5.6 and M. Zuiko Digital ED 14–150mm F4.0–5.6 lenses. Olympus is designating these two lenses as MSC, or Movie-Still-Compatible. They are optimized for shooting high definition video with accurate and silent autofocus.
