E-M5II sensor gets DxOmarked. Has same score as the E-M1.

Bildschirmfoto 2015-04-09 um 08.44.04

DxOmark (Click here) posted the full E-M5II sensor test:

The improvements to the EVF and LCD screen resolution, alongside more customizable controls, have updated the OM-D E-M5 Mark II to respond to the 2015 hybrid market. What’s more, with its retro styling, weather-resistant construction, and large range of interchangeable lenses, it looks likely to remain a big hit with Olympus enthusiasts. The 5-axis image stabilization system and 40Mp stitching mode will be handy for some shots too, but sticking with the similar, if not same, 16Mp four-thirds sensor from the Mark I means that the latest model doesn’t offer any real improvement to sensor image quality over its predecessor in the DxOMark Sensor Scores.

Reminder: First E-M5II leather case on eBay in Full Black (Click here) or in Full Brown (Click here).

First full Panasonic 30mm macro lens review by ePhotozine.


ePhotozine (Click here) posted the first full review of the new Panasonic 30mm macro lens. And it earned the highest “editor’s choice” award:

Who could ask for more than a reasonably priced lens that delivers excellent sharpness across the frame from maximum aperture, useful optical stabilisation and life size magnification at its closest focusing distance? Of course the compact size and light weight also help to make this lens one that will win over many admirers.

New Panasonic lens preorders:
Panasonic 42.5mm f/1.7 POWER O.I.S. Lens at Amazon, BHphoto and Adorama.
Panasonic MACRO 30mm f/2.8 MEGA O.I.S. Lens at Amazon, BHphoto and Adorama.

Cool test: Olympus AIR with the 300mm Four Thirds lens!


One of the advantages of the new Olympus AIR MFT “lens-camera” is that it allows a new kind of shooting with huge tele lenses! The picture on top shows how you can hold the 300mm f/2.8 Four Thirds lens without having to use the tripod. Something that would be much harder to do if you would have a “normal” DSLR or Mirrorless camera on it. posted a full set of images to show how it works (Click on it to enlarge):
