Panasonic and Olympus video interview at Dpreview. More fast primes to come in 2015!

Share


Matt Frazer from Panasonic

Dpreview posted a nice set of video interview of all camera manufacturers. And these two video interviews are about Panasonic and Olympus.


Ray Acevedo from Olympus

Matt from Panasonic didn’t share any clue about future products. But Ray clearly hints about possible future very fast primes. He says he would love to see a fast 10-11mm prime. And as you know Olympus patented a 12mm f/1.0 design (article here). Can’t wait to see that one :)

(FT2) Olympus has a PEN prototype with “vertical sensor”.

Image of the latest new PEN: The E-Pl7.

I just got that strange new rumor about the future PEN development:

The pen line isn’t discontinued, rather it’s being taken back to it’s roots. One of the mockups has the sensor in a portrait orientation like the original film pens, the space saved by the shutter traveling sideways rather than vertically allowing a viewfinder above it (still in the center line of camera, which is hard to do with the vertical running shutter, almost all other mirrorless have the EVF on the left hand edge or a hump because of it).

The source claims to know that this is a just a prototype and he believes the management will not approve that for final production because it’s too much “risk”. So I figured out that we may help the management to decide by asking our readers what they think about it:

Should Olympus really release such a PEN with vertical sensor?

(Photoshopped image) Silver 12-40mm PRO lens coming soon?

Silver_pro_12-40mm

Note: I stitched together that image from 4 small images i found on the website (therefore the imperfections!).

A Dutch Store (via DL) is listing a Silver Olympus 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO lens.  The image itself looks like it has been inverted in PS. They made did that to fill the gap. But I guess Olympus will soon announce such a Silver lens for real to match it with the new Silver E-M1 camera. Do you like the new color? :)

UPDATE: Some readers believes the lens is not coming because the image has been photoshopped. Guys, the point is the store is accepting preorders on what they clearly states being a new SILVER version fo the lens. They just PS an image to not leave the site with a blank image :)

P.S.: Silver E-M1 body at Amazon, Adorama, Bhphoto, GetOlympus. In Europe at Wex UK.
