Amazon Europe Charts.

Yesterday we posted the Amazon top 20 chart. We thought it would be interesting to compare it with Amazon Europe charts. This is not a scientific comparison because rankings do also depend from deals and prices which are very different from Amazon US.
The biggest surprise is that the Olympus E-520 leads the ranking in Germany!

Top 5 cameras in Amazon Germany (click on the camera name to visit the product page):

Position Position in US Brand Camera Price
1 14 Olympus Olympus E-520 inkl. 14-42mm & 40-150mm Objektive EUR 490,45
2 9 Canon Canon EOS 7D Gehäuse EUR 1.327,95
3 2 Canon Canon EOS 450D inkl. EF-S 18-55mm IS Objektiv EUR 540,45

(FT4) New Olympus E-3 and E-30 successor (one single camera?)

Dear readers,
since over one month I am continually receiving rumors about the E-3 and E-30 successor. At the beginning I thought that there would be two new cameras but now I “believe” that the E-30 and the E-3 are probably going to be replaced by one single new FourThirds camera!

I have only few informations:
- The new FourThirds camera is going to be unveiled in March (late March?).
- Do not expect little upgrades over the E-30/E-3…do expect more! The new camera should have some kind of “special” sensor.
- It will not be a mirrorless camera
Keep sending your “rumors” at 43rumors@gmail.com or use the contact form on the right sidebar!

Thanks to all the people who sent me pieces and pieces of informations!
