(FT4) Olympus will soon make announcement for the 7-14mm lens. But no new camera coming?

Share

7-14mm_PRO

A source told me Olympus will announce the 7-14mm f/2.8 PRO lens pricing in May. And as far as he heard there is no new MFT camera to be announced yet. So no new E-P6 or E-PLM camera coming yet.

Another source shared a good and a not so good news. The Panasonic G7 will have 4K but very likely no DFD focusing system. He has no info about the 4K bitrate. The FT5 specs so far are:

– Panasonic G7 announcement in mid may
– 16MP sensor (same as th one used by the GX7
– 4K recording
– no DFD

Store links to the current G6: Amazon, Adorama, B&H, eBay

Panasonic and Olympus will display new MFT products at the “SCHAU 2015!” show on May 29!

schau2015

The Schau 2015 event in Berlin will start on May 29. And the official program discloses two news:

Olympus  Sneak Preview der neuen Objektive M.Zuiko Digital ED 8mm Fisheye f/1,8 Pro & 7-14mm f/2,8 Pro

Which means Olympus will have a sneak preview with the 8mm Fisheye and 7-14mm PRO lenses! I guess this means full pricing will be released on that event also because the 7-14mm lens is expected to ship in June according to BHphoto (Click here).

And then Panasonic:

PREMIERE! Spannende Panasonic Lumix Neuheiten

It says there will be “exciting” new Panasonic Lumix products! Of course we already know one of them is the G7 camera :)

Thanks Klaus for spotting and sharing the news!

A couple of info about the next PRO lenses (300mm delayed).

I got some small info about the next three Olympus PRO lenses:

1) 7-14mm PRO lens will ship between late June and early July. It will cost 1399 Euro
2) Olympus got little “interest” from dealers about the 8mm PRO fisheye lens.
3) 300mm f/4.0. Apparently Olympus told to dealers the lens release got delayed. No specific timeframe of the release were given.

Reminder: Two of the future PRO lenses are listed here:
Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 7-14mm f/2.8 PRO Lens (here at BHphoto).
Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 300mm f/4 PRO Lens (here at BHphoto).
