(UPDATED FT5) First picture of the new 75-300mm. More pics from XZ-10

Share

And here it is the first picture of the “reworked” Olympus 75-300mm II Micro Four Thirds lens. It will be announced next week and be cheaper (in terms of price) than the current 75-300mm lens. And as I told you a couple of days ago you see it comes in Black only. And I guess we should be happy that Olympus doens’t make us pay more just because it’s black ;)

This is it with the “Big Announcement” advertised by GetOlympus. I will tell you, there will be a big announcement in Spring (March?) for a new MFT camera and new high quality lenses. That is what I define as “Big” :)

UPDATE: And here are more pics of the XZ-10:

(UDPATED: 2 GH3 in Stock.) New GX1 deal at Samys.

Share

While I got reliable info about the release of the new GF and G successors in Spring I still have no reliable info about the next generation GX camera. Wondering what Panasonic has in his mind. That said the current GX1 model is now available with the X pancake zoom for $649 at Samys (Click here) or via Samys at Amazon (Click here). There are also a few acutions one eBay where you can get the Silver kit for $599 (Click here).

UPDATE: Two Gh3 in  Stock for the regular price at 39mm (Click here).

First images of the XZ-10 compact camera.

Share

And here is the one camera Olympus advertised as “Big announcement”. As anticipated on 43rumors it is the XZ-10 compact camera :(

The camera will be announced next week along other compact cameras and an updated version of the 75-300mm Micro Four Thirds lens. The XZ-10 has a f/1,8-2,7 lens and will be cheaper than the current XZ-2 model (here on eBay)…it costs 399 Euro. The 75.300mm lens costs 599 Euro.

(FT5) Olympus announcement next week.

Share

Sources confirmed that there will be an Olympus products announcement next week. But they also confirm that the “Big teaser” from GetOlympus is for the XZ-10 and not for a new MFT camera. The XZ-10 will certainly be a nice compact camera but we were expecting a bit more from what GetOlympus defined as a “Big Announcement”.

Anyway, along the XZ-10 we will have other new compact camera models and the new updated and cheaper 75-300mm II MFT lens.

That’s just my speculation but I guess Olympus new MFT camera with integrated EVF had to be delayed a bit because Epsons new 2,36 Million dot EVF mass production just started this week.
