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).

(FT2) E-M1 Silver edition and 4K firmware upgrade coming in September?

An anonymous source shared the following info:

Olympus will launch a Silver E-M1 edition at Photokina. And there will be also a new firmware for the E-M1 that allows you to shoot 4K video (& get a lot of options during shooting videos).

The source is new so take it with a grain of salt. But it would be certainly a huge (and welcome) surprise if current E-M1 owners would get such a firmware update! Sounds almost to good to be true…

(FT4) Black 12mm and new 40-150mm PRO lens to be announced soon

Our Japanese colleges from Digicameinfo just confirmed the rumor I posted a while ago: The new 40-150mm PRO lens (picture on top) will be announced very soon. Digicameinfo also added another info. A Black version of the current 12mm lens will be announced too. And it will cost just like the current Silver version.

My sources said the 40-150mm lens will cost about $1200-1300 and ship in early 2015.
