(FT5) First image of the Black 12mm and Black 15mm lenses!

Share

Digicaminfo found two images of the new 12mm and 15mm black lenses. Actually that 15mm body-cap is intriguing me a lot and I like the idea that it will be packaged along the new PEN cameras!

What worries me a bit is that I have been told the Black 12mm lens is optically the same as the current Olympus 12mm f/2.0 lens. So why put a “Limited Black” mark on it? To make it more expensive? Hope I am wrong and that the price will remain the same.

(FT2) E-PM to cost 399 Euro (599 for the E-PL5)

Share

I got some more bits about the new Olympus PEN cameras:

The screen on the E-PL5 swings like the one of the Sony F3. It shoots 9fps. There is no built-in flash. The price with kit lens 599 Euro/Dollars. The E-PM2 with kit lens costs 399 Euro/Dollars.

While I leaked the full GH3 specs I still don’t know the final GH3 price. But I have the “suspect” that Panasonic still hasn’t unveiled to anyone what the price will be. They may are waiting to see what others are bringing? I hope that now that Nikon lowered the mark of FF cameras (with the D600) Panasonic may do the same on the pro GH3 :)

(FT5) First Olympus XZ-2 images leaks out! (and front pic of the 15mm lens)

Share

A reader just sent me a link to the first pictures of the new Olympus XZ-compact camera (via Tinypic). We also have been told by other sources that the sensor size will not change. It will use a similar Olympus XZ-1 sized sensor and not a larger 1 inch sensor like you see on the Sony RX100 camera. But this is going to be a real nice camera and as you see form the picture you can even customize the grip like you do on the Olympus E-P3!

UPDATE: One more pic of the front of the 15mm m43 lens at mu-43.com
