(FT4) What’s coming from Olympus


I don’t know if the recent Kumamoto earthquake did postpone the timing for some single new products. Anyway this is what we can expect to be announced by Olympus before Photokina start:

  • Olympus E-PL8 (already leaked months ago but announcement delayed due the Kumamoto earthquake)
  • 30mm f/3.5 MFT macro lens
  • 25mm f/1.2 PRO Zuiko MFT lens.
  • New PRO standard zoom
  • Olympus E-M1II (maybe shipment will be postponed til early 2017 due the Kumamoto eartquake)

(FT4) The new LX100 successor will be announced at Photokina

We got word from our sources that Panasonic will launch the new LX100 successor at Photokina. No specs info yet.

The GH5 shoulb be announced too… if the Kumamoto earthquake dind’t change the Panasonic plan…
