(Photoshopped image) Silver 12-40mm PRO lens coming soon?

Share

Silver_pro_12-40mm

Note: I stitched together that image from 4 small images i found on the website (therefore the imperfections!).

A Dutch Store (via DL) is listing a Silver Olympus 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO lens.  The image itself looks like it has been inverted in PS. They made did that to fill the gap. But I guess Olympus will soon announce such a Silver lens for real to match it with the new Silver E-M1 camera. Do you like the new color? :)

UPDATE: Some readers believes the lens is not coming because the image has been photoshopped. Guys, the point is the store is accepting preorders on what they clearly states being a new SILVER version fo the lens. They just PS an image to not leave the site with a blank image :)

P.S.: Silver E-M1 body at Amazon, Adorama, Bhphoto, GetOlympus. In Europe at Wex UK.

(FT4) Panasonic GH4 firmware update coming on November 19-21?

There are still some small or few major quirks that need to be fixed on the GH4. Among them we have the fatc that in HDMI 25p is still outputting 50i. But there is a good news coming via the Atomos itself:

I’m hearing rumors that Panasonic may be announcing this patch at InterBEE which is November 19th-21 with the actual patch being released shortly afterwards, again fingers crossed!

It’s good to hear Panasonic is alreayd working on a new firmware update. Some extra wishes form our readers? :)

GH5 could have 4K 60fps and 8K recording?

Bildschirmfoto 2014-10-18 um 11.15.13

Mapcamera interviewed Mr.Tadokoro Yoshifumi from Panasonic. Asked about the features that could come in future cameras Mr.Yoshifumi said they are working on:

1) 4K 60fps recording
2) 8K recording

I guess the first feature will certainly make it into the GH5. But I am yet not sure if 8K will come that soon…

(FT4) Firmware update coming soon for other Olympus MFT cameras

olympus_capture

I keep receiving info from various anonymous sources saying that the E-P5, E-M5 and likely also other cameras will get a firmware update within the next few months. This is highly likely also because Olympus Capture Software yet doesn’t support any other camera than the E-M1. I hope the new firmware will allow tethering and some of the other new E-M1 features on all current MFT cameras!
