(FT4) Two new MFT cameras to be announced within two months

This has been a quiet year so far. Logical after all that GH5 and E-M1II buzz. But finally the wait is over and we can expect two new MFT cameras to be launched in late August/September.

One is the long time rumored and also delayed E-m10III. It has 20Mp sensor and 4K.

The second camera is a new compact Panasonic model (don’t know if it’s GF, GM or GX).

I don’t know if there is some other unexpected surprise camera coming this year….

That new Zeiss Biotar 75mm f/1.5 might comes with native MFT mount too

Some folks of the Meyer Optik are about to launch a modern revisitation of the classic Zeiss Biotar 75/1.5 lens. Ans the lens is expected to be available in different mount versions. While nothing has yet confirmed it seems there is a chance this will be made for MFT too. And I bet it will be available for preorder on Kickstarter and sell as usual in a huge quantity (yeah I know it’s surprising)

(FT5) Confirmed: Olympus 45mm f/1.2 in the works too!

The third lens of the PRO f/1.2 prime lens line up will be the 45mm f/1.2!

After the current 25mm f/1.2 Olympus plans to launch the 17mm f/1.2 and the 45mm f/1.2. It’s yet unclear if Olympus will announce just both at the same time. What we know is that for sure at least one of the two lenses (maybe the 17mm) will be announced this autumn.

Note: The current Olympus 25mm f/1.2 is in Stock at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Olympus US store, FocusCamera, eBay.
