(FT4) Olympus 9-18mm Lens to be announced in February-March and it will cost $600!

Share

Today seems to be a good day for lens news! Samyang just announced their new lenses with FourThirds mount and now 43rumors has learned that the new MicroFourThirds 9-18mm lens (shown in the picture above) will be unveiled in Q1 (probably February or March). We also know that the lens will cost around $600 (or 550 Euro). Our sources told us that the quality should be at least on par with the Panasonic 7-14 MicroFourThirds lens. It will weight a lot less and be a lot smaller than the Panasonic lens and can be fitted with filters.

At the same time Olympus will also release the 14-150mm lens. We have no price indication about this lens now.

Spread the news to all MFT folks!

(FT4) Kodak will not produce a MFT camera.

Good morning dear readers!

On early November Letsgodigitial said that Kodak could unveil a new MicroFourThirds camera in 2010.

We had the chance to talk with our sources and now we can tell you that Kodak will not make a MicroFourThirds camera. As reported before also Leica was close to join the MicroFourThirds system but they decided to go their own way.

We are working now to get more infos on Fuji’s plans. They will very likely join the MFT world!

Sigma SD15 (Foveon Sensor)


In the past we received some rumors about Olympus testing Foveon sensors on their cameras. The Foveon sensor creates its RGB color output for each photosite by combining the outputs of each of the stacked photodiodes at each of its photosites. Anyaway this are really unreliable rumors. What’s true is that Sigma is releasing the new SD15 camera wich uses such a sensor. It will be very interesting to see how the new and improved Foveon sensor will perform.

The leaked camera has been found inside nothing else than BHphoto (click here to see the picture and read the specs)!

(FT5) Olympus new compact camera T-100 (No MicroFourThirds!)

On early January Olympus will unveil a new compact camera model the “T-100“. I don’t know if the “T” stays for the “TOUGH” compact series.

My speculation is that it will be a new underwater camera model.
