(FT5) The E-M5 successor is “a bit” different from current E-M5 (and has “new higher image resolution”).

Share


Image on top.: OM-1 film camera.

Two highly trusted sources told me the new E-M5 successor will indeed be announced the first week of February. Both of them already saw the camera and told me the camera looks “a bit different” from the current E-M5. They also told me the camera sensor delivers a new “higher resolution” image. Both sources know the exact specs but for obvious reasons cannot tell me them. But they wanted to let 43rumors readers know they can finally expect to see some new features :)

So let’s sum up the little (but highly FT5 rated) news we have ont he E-M5 successor:
– Sligthly different body style than the current E-M5
– New Image resolution (yes, it’s a bit strange I know. They said higher resolution image and not “sensor”!).
– announcement first week of February 2015

Now let’s hope the “real” specs will pop out soon :)

oh….and do not forget…there is one more thing to come from Olympus. One more exciting camera also to be announced at CP+! Full article on 43rumors here.

(FT4) GF and G lines are “on hold”. GM sales not as good as expected?

So what’s next with Panasonic?

1) A trusted source told me Panasonic is focusing on the GH an GM line evaluation. And while they have many different prototypes in their labs the “GF” and “G” line are “on hold”.

2) Another source also told me the new “Panasonic GM” line sales have not reached their targets. While the GH4 definitely exceeded all best expectations.

I hope sources will soon tell me what Panasonic camera is coming in 2015. Just for fun: Let me know what Panasonic system camera you would consider to buy:

(FT5) Corrected: E-M5 successor has NO(!) PDAF.


Image on top.: OM-1 film camera.

I can confirm the new E-M5 successor will NOT have PDAF. Not yet 100% confirmed are the rumors that the camera has 4K recording and that’s weather sealed.

The E-M5 successor will be announced the first week of February!

(FT4) Panasonic 30mm f/2.8 macro to be launched in Q1.

 

Sourced report that Panasonic plans to launch the new 30mm f/2.8 MFT macro lens during first quarter 2015. I guess this means the lens will be displayed at the CP+ show in mid February. There is no info on the price yet.

That is what Panasonic writes about that lens:

The new 30mm/F2.8 macro lens enables not only life-size macro photography but also offers further versatile styles of capturing photos, such as landscape photography thanks to a focusing distance of 60mm (35mm camera equivalent). For high precision focusing in macro photography the new lens also supports 240 fps high-speed AF, while integrating optical image stabiliser. It features a sophisticated exterior design in metallic finish for the stylish appearance.

(FT5) There is “One more thing” from Olympus!

Highly trusted sources said that Olympus will not only announce the new E-M6 in February. There will be also “One more thing”!!!!!!!!

Maybe it’s just me but I hope this is the digital Olympus Trip 35 camera (here on eBay) :)

What do you hope is that new "One more thing" camera?
