(FT4) UPDATED: New High End OMD may just be the Silver E-M1 :(

UPDATE: One of our good sources contacted me to say that unlike some speculation made by our readers the new OMD camera that Olympus will launch in September is neither a E-M5 replacement nor a complete new OMD model. And I got word from two sources that the new OMD may be just a new Silver E-M1 with new firmware update.

This means no real NEW OMD camera is coming at Photokina. Hope other sources will contact me to confirm or deny the rumor.

(FT5) ZYoptics 42,5mm f/1.2 MFT lens coming by end of the year.

UPDATE: Sorry made a huge typo. It’s f/1.2 and not f/1.5 :)

I got word from a trusted chinese dealer that the new ZYoptics 42,5mm f/1.2 Micro Four Thirds lens will start to ship as soon as they will finish all 50/0.95 E-mount order shipments. The lens will likely ship by end of this year. You can see more pictures of the lens prototype (with the older brand name) at Tech Sina.

This is their second Micro Four Thirds lens after the Mitakon 35mm f/0.95 (can be found here on eBay).

(FT5) Samyang to launch a 50mm f/1.5 Micro Four Thirds lens at Photokina.

Samyang will announce a new Micro Four Thirds lens at Photokina. It will be the 50mm f/1.5 lens. Main characteristic of the lens (like any Samyang lens) will be: low price but still high optical quality. I have no info yet whether tis lens will have autofocus or not (I guess it has not).

Samyang , Walimex , Rokinon , Opteka , Falcon , Vivitar and Bower .
