(FT5) Quick update: E-P5 firmware coming on Thursday.

Quick update on the E-P5 firmware update. I have been told that it will be released on Thursday. And also that focus peaking improvement will allow colour choice and rather than simply an outline of what is in focus, full coverage of the in focus item will display.

Thanks to the anonymous source for keeping me informed on that!

(FT5) E-P5 firmware update coming this week. Adds Anti Shock feature same as on the E-M1.

I got this from one source and one website (Omuser). This week Olympus will release a new firmware update for the Olympus E-P5. It will add:

- Anti Shock feature just like it had been added on the E-m1 recently.
- improved focus peaking.

P.S.: A while ago I told you how major retailers have been told the E-P5 is now our of production. I haven’t received any reliable rumor yet but there is a fair chance the E-P6 will come in June.

Olympus is working on a ground breaking compact camera.

Update on the Panasonic-Leica partnership rumor…

The first Leica T picture appeared and as you know it’s said to be made in partnership with Panasonic (More info at MirrorlessRumors). The camera will cost $3,000 and have an APS-C sensor and T-mount. So it’s not going to compete against the MFT or any other current mirrorless system. What’s still not 100% sure is if the Leica T is made by Panasonic or if Panasonic just makes the electronics and then ships them to Germany so that Leica can assemble them there.

What I am sure yet about is that Panasonic will not join such a system. This is all about selling a red logo on a camera :)
