(FT3) Tamron to make m4/3 lenses?

Share

DSLRphoto wrote a facebook post which says that Tamron could soon make m4/3 lenses. The only issue I see with that “rumor” is that Sony is the major shareholder of Tamron and I don’t know if they really want to make the m4/3 sys

(FT3) HOT! Panasonic to announce a completely new type of camera (early July)

According to rumors we received yesterday Panasonic will announce a new camera which will not be comparable with any camera released by Panasonic before. We are not talking about long awaited $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($sel != '1')
{?>LX3 successor. The LX4 (or LX5) will be announced late July or before Photokina. And we are not talking about a camera with interchangeable lenses. The sources did not tell us exactly how it will look like but we from 43rumors believe it will be a MicroFourThirds camera with fixed lens (like the $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($sel != '1')
{?>Sigma DP2)

The camera should be unveiled early July. We hope some of our sources can tell us more about that camera soon!

Thanks Heli. 😉

(FT3) Panasonic to announce a new product on July 28?

According to Photorumors Panasonic could launch a new product by end of July. Photorumors says the $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>LX3 if ($sel != '1')
{?>LX3 successor maybe will be released at the event.
43rumors already told you that the next Panasonic MFT cameras are going to be announced by end of September (the GH2 and the ultraslim MFT camera). It will be nice to see if the LX3 will become something like the $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma DP2 if ($sel != '1')

(FT2) Two rumors from new sources

REMINDER: The rumors we do here are from new and anonymous sources. Those are not from our trusted sources. We post them because many people is sending us very similar rumors and maybe there is some kind of truth behind them!

RUMOR 1:
The bright new future of Olympus
Im afraid this might come as a shock to some of you , but olympus is indeed going to stop developing new $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>four third lenses if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>four third lenses if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>four third lenses if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>four third lenses if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>four third lenses if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>four third lenses if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>four third lenses if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>four third lenses if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>four third lenses if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>four third lenses if ($sel != '1')
{?>four third lenses. The time has come for olympus to move in a bold new direction with its cameras and you might find out it actually for the best. Im sure you are thinking there could be no other move to cripple the olympus fanbase any futher.
You are wrong….
Because even though olympus is working on a new sensor format with newer , sharper , brighter lenses that wouldnt be possible with lessons learned with 4/3’s….
your old 4/3 lenses are going to STILL be sticking around for a long time
Because now… you can switch out the full lense mount with the sensor. Which means that you can still use your old 4/3 lenses on BRAND NEW CAMERAS that will also be able to take the BRAND NEW SENSORS AND LENSES (if you choose to upgrade that is)!
(this is also good news for micro4/3 lovers aswell)

RUMOR2:
A little while ago I was able to be in a meeting with the local Olympus rep. He would want us to have the 4/3 line and full Olympus gear back in our store. The manager told him that we will not carry it unless they have things coming out that will be “a game changer” because they have never sold well with us. The Olympus rep said he couldn’t give away everything, but that for the 4/3 system (NOT THE MICRO!) there will be a new line of the HG or “High Grade” lenses that will be pancake primes, similar to the $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>special edition lenses that Pentax if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>special edition lenses that Pentax if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>special edition lenses that Pentax if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>special edition lenses that Pentax if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>special edition lenses that Pentax if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>special edition lenses that Pentax if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>special edition lenses that Pentax if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>special edition lenses that Pentax if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>special edition lenses that Pentax if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>special edition lenses that Pentax if ($sel != '1')
{?>special edition lenses that Pentax has become so famous for. The most exciting thing is that they will be, in spite of being “4/3″ labeled, able to cover a larger image circle – he was not sure whether it would be full 35mm or maybe even larger – but still be a compact pancake design. When we asked him if this meant that Olympus would in the future increase the size of the sensors, he shrugged and said he couldn’t say about that but could only tell us about the lenses because prototypes are already starting to circulate within the company and they could be announced by the end of the summer, of if not maybe the end of the year.

(FT5) Noktor to make custom lens design for MicroFourThirds….and even faster lenses!!!

Ok that’s unfair. I admit that I received the “rumor” directly from Noktor :) So I guess I could call that “news” and not “rumor”. What did they tell us? “we now have a totally custom lens design in the works (not based on existing design like the Goyo lens)” and “It will be sharper and faster than our current F0.95 lens (but priced higher)“. They didn’t tell us how fast they will make the lens. The only ultra fast lenses I know (because I found them on eeBay) are the $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Oude Delft 50mm f/0.75 if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Oude Delft 50mm f/0.75 if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Oude Delft 50mm f/0.75 if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Oude Delft 50mm f/0.75 if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Oude Delft 50mm f/0.75 if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Oude Delft 50mm f/0.75 if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Oude Delft 50mm f/0.75 if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Oude Delft 50mm f/0.75 if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Oude Delft 50mm f/0.75 if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Oude Delft 50mm f/0.75 if ($sel != '1')
{?>Oude Delft 50mm f/0.75
and the $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Leica Leitz 75mm f/0.85 if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Leica Leitz 75mm f/0.85 if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Leica Leitz 75mm f/0.85 if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Leica Leitz 75mm f/0.85 if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Leica Leitz 75mm f/0.85 if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Leica Leitz 75mm f/0.85 if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Leica Leitz 75mm f/0.85 if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Leica Leitz 75mm f/0.85 if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Leica Leitz 75mm f/0.85 if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Leica Leitz 75mm f/0.85 if ($sel != '1')
{?>Leica Leitz 75mm f/0.85

Noktor is following 43rumors so may you could tell them what kind of lens you need!

How much do you like (or liked) the GF1?
