Hot! Panasonic GF1+20mm for $769.99 (563 €) -> ships worldwide!


We have seen many price drops on Amazon and other stores but the real deal is now on Ebay.

The Top-rated seller “Cameraland” is selling four Panasonic GF1+20mm sets for $769.99 only! That’s $110 cheaper than the current price on Amazon US.

They ship worldwide so everyone interested in getting the camera should take a look on it.
For europeans: $769.99= 563 € -> In Germany the cheapest price is 742,99 € on Pixmania.de. So you save 180 €. I don’t know how much you have to pay for taxes if you buy in Ebay US.

UPDATE: I was told that in Italy you have to pay 25% taxes! :(
P.S.: we do not expect any Panasonic GF1 successor soon.

Rumors from others: Sony mirrorless cameras in May. Samsung-Schneider deal.

It is really quiet on the MicroFourThirds front. We received rumors about the next Olympus MFT camera but we need some time to double-check the infos we receive. FourThirds rumors are completely on hold until Olympus strategy will be more clear.
But as I told you previousely there will be soon new mirrorless cameras from the competition.

K-rumors learned from his own sources that Samsung signed a partnership deal with Schneider.
This are details of the deal:
1) Schneider reissues $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>M42 Lenses if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>M42 Lenses if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>M42 Lenses if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>M42 Lenses if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>M42 Lenses if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>M42 Lenses if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>M42 Lenses if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>M42 Lenses if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>M42 Lenses if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>M42 Lenses if ($sel != '1')
{?>M42 Lenses design with NX mount, new coating and construction.
2) Expect the release of four new Schneider lenses during the next months.
3) Those lenses would be designed by Schneider but built in Korea by Samsung/Optron-Tech with Schneider supervision and quality control.

SonyAlphaRumors reports that two Sony mirrorless cameras will be announced on late May. The new system will be called NEX.

I am curious to know what the big ones (Nikon-Canon) want to do….

MicroFourThirds books in Germany and other countries.

I noticed that in Germany you can find some nice books about MicroFourThirds cameras. Now they have two new books:
The Profibuch Olympus PEN: E-P1, E-P2 & E-PL1 (Gebundene Ausgabe) and the Digital ProLine: Das praktische Handbuch zur Panasonic Lumix GF1

Other countries do not have that choice. Amazon UK lists only the Magic Lantern Guides: Olympus E-P1 (Magic Lantern Compact Guides).

The same book is available for US citizen in amazon: Magic Lantern Guides: Olympus E-P1
