New Panasonic deals (GF1, GH1 and more).

We are getting closer to the Panasonic press release on September 21. As you know we don’t expect any GF1 replacement soon. At least the GF1 is becoming cheaper (in US):

J&R via Amazon is selling the Panasonic GF1 with 14-45mm Lens (Click here) and Panasonic GF1 with 20mm Lens (Click here) for $699 only. (Don’t forget to select J&R as Vendor)

The GH2 is coming soon but the Panasonic GH1 still remains a very good camera -> even if the Hack doesn’t work anymore :(
And again J&R via Amazon is selling the GH1 + 14-140mm lens (Click here) for $999.

Reminder: Today is the last day for the Olympus instante rebates:

You can save $100 on the Olympus 9-18mm lens. Click on those shop names to visit the relative product page: Amazon / Adorama / BHphoto

And you can save $80 on the Olympus 14-150mm lens. Click on those shop names to visit the relative product page: Amazon / Adorama / BHphoto

UPDATED: First 3D lens hands-on!

Image courtesy: Quesabesde

UPDATE: More images of the camera+3D lens have been posted on engadget.

As you already know Panasonic will launch the new 3D lens for MicroFourThirds cameras. Quesabesde had the chance to hold one of those lenses (Click here to read the google english translation).

Here a short list of the most interesting parts of the text:

- “The lens simulates the vision of both the left and right eye, so it is possible to form a three dimensional image using a single sensor

- “We tested the lens on the Lumix DMC-G2 and it has been possible to verify that the camera body automatically detects the presence of the 3D lens.”

- “The resulting files do have a size of 904 x 1600 pixels. In addition to the 3D file extension MPO, the camera also stores a JPEG image that displays the picture “normal” on the camera screen.

- “It also seems unlikely that this modality 3D is compatible with Micro Four Thirds cameras from Olympus

Thanks Quesabesde!
