Patent: Olympus is working on a new 150mm macro for 43 and m43.

The Japanese website Egami (Click here) found a new Olympus patent describing different variations of a new 150mm f/2.8 macro lens. There are actually two different versions. One shorter lens for the m43 system and a longer lens for the Four Thirds system. Both are described as high quality optics. The only similar lens currently on market is the Sigma 150mm lens (here at Amazon).

One more thing: I am currently sorting out your lens suggestions for the m43 system and will soon publish the poll.

First rendering of the Panasonic G5

The same source that sent me the real GF5 pictures sent me also that G5 picture. This looks quite a bit different from the Panasonic G3. So much more….rounded :)

Hope to get the real pics soon!

(FT5) Pictures of the White and Black GF5. Noise performance is on par with 7D.

The mysterious Asian source from nPhoto just sent me the pictures of the white and black Panasonic GF5. The new revised grip makes the GF5 looks better than the Panasonic GF3. The source was also so kind to inform me that the high ISO noise-level is as same as the Canon 7D and 60D. It’s nice to know you can get that kind of performance on a camera that fits in your pocket :)

Here is the picture of the black GF5:

Do you like the new GF5?

P.S.: Also the G5 will arrive along the GF5. Announcements soon (I am still checking for the right announcement date and hour).
