Olympus Malaysia launched a new website with the following teaser: http://www.evolve.com.my/.
But CNET Asia learned that this is not a teaser for a new product announcement:”We got back to Olympus Singapore which told CNET Asia that the microsite is just part of the company’s marketing scheme for the already-announced E-PL1 Micro Four Thirds camera. Also, no new dSLRs are expected on February 28.”

The website EOShd.com reported what Panasonic engineer T. Azuma’s said during the International Solid State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) in San Francisco (which took place last week).
Basically Azuma says that Panasonic developed a sensor based on ‘dual exposure technique’ which improves the sensitivity by a factor of 4. This goal has been archived allowing green pixels to be read independently of the blue and red ones on the sensor. They are exposed four times longer than the red and blue pixels.

I just received an email from one of our readers which found that lens on ebay. The description of the owner says: “This lens is 55mm f/1.0~f/11 , was manufactory in Japan by Kowa. Lens rework on Panasonic Lumix G1 GF1 GH1 or Olympus E-P1 E-P2.“. The lens fits on a MicroFourThirds camera without any adapter!
