GX1 sales started in Japan. New Panasonic GX1 reviews (CamerastoreTV)

Share

The new Panasonic GX1 is now for sale in Japan (Amazon). Let’s see how long it takes to come to the rest of the world….months? As you know MR. Sykes from Panasonic said: “If you’re lucky you might get it (the GX1) under your tree for Christmas. It’s that type of launch. So that campaign may move into next year. Obviously the G3 we see as a mass product. The GX we don’t think will be a mass product“. LOL 🙁

Meanwhile watch the video on top for a first hands-on review and take a look at following image samples from Imaging Resource.

More “Woodfoord” news. He is a big fan of the E-P3 :)

Share

Amateur Photographer is keeping us daily updated about the Olympus fee scandal. Today they report that “Two members of the Olympus board and the company’s auditor have quit the scandal-hit camera maker
Yesterday Former Olympus CEO Michael Woodford was mobbed by photographers and TV crews on his first return to Japan (Read more at Amateur Photographer). And Olympus officially said that there is no evidence of “crime syndicates” link (Source: AP).

Amateur Photographer also posted another Woodford article where he says that he is a big fan of the E-P3 and says: “The problem for Olympus has always been the dominance of Canon and Nikon in the DSLR market. Their dominance was rather like our business in endoscopes, but the advent of mirrorless cameras has brought about a renaissance.

(FT3) New Panasonic X 35mm f/2.4 macro lens coming soon?

Share

A source that gave me once a correct “rumor” just told me that he found an image of a new Panasonic 35mm f/2.4 X macro lens! It will cost LESS than the current Pansonic-Leica 45mm f/2.8 macro (Current price is 700 dollars/Euro on eBay). The 35mm is not a Leica branded lens. I have no direct contact to the source but if he is reading the message feel free to send me the image you found ont he web at 43rumors@gmail.com. You can also use “anonymous” tools like wetransfer.com or imageshack.us. Thanks!!!

P.S.: other sources can confirm that the lens really exists???
