Yitechnology posted the full english presentation site of their new M1 MFT camera. And here you have few more info:

Dpreview posted an M1 First Impressions Review:

The M1 is definitely an impressive first step into the world of mirrorless ILC technology for YI. I think a number of these issues could be addressed through firmware updates, and being that this is a prototype, some of these issues may be addressed in the final release. Although we can’t officially release any sample images, my initial impressions are that the DR is quite impressive in the Raw DNG files – you can push the files to around +3EV with minimal issues. The JPEG engine does a fairly nice job with the images shot at low ISO’s, but the noise reduction in the higher ISO photos is fairly aggressive. I found the super fine JPEG processing to be the most visually pleasing.

ePhotozine had the chance to play a bit with the camera and also published a few image samples. At the end they write:

With simple graphical icons, and swiping the way you change modes, the camera is definitely something you can quickly pick up and start using. We found the Yi-M1 felt quite good in the hand, with a rubberised front grip on the camera. The camera is also surprisingly light, being made out of plastic (with a metal lens mount), and weighing just 280g. The Yi-M1 is being introduced with two Yi lenses, the 42.5mm f/1.8 portrait / macro lens, and a 12-40mm zoom lens. The two lenses have a plastic construction, with glass elements.

Few more M1 hands-on shots have been posted at Personal View.

Optyczne.pl posted some photos of the Leica lens roadmap. It shows the following release time:

8-18mm f/2.8-4.0 (2017)
12-60mm f/2.8-4.0 (end 2016)
50-200mm f/2.8-4.0 (2017)

The 50-200mm lens is marked as “under study” which could mean that the lens will be announced some time after the 8-18mm lens.

Triple E-M1II hands-on by Matt Granger, Imaging Resource and Cinema5D

FacebookShare

We got three new E-M1II hands-on reports. Above you can watch Matt Granger’s take on the camera. On the video below Cinema5D videogrpahers opinion. While Imaging Resource writes:

The camera’s performance, while hard to definitively judge with an early prototype at a press event, seems very fast and quite nimble. The AF felt much faster than the E-M1, even in the extremely dark conditions at the press event. The 15fps mechanical shutter-based continuous burst shoot was amazingly fast and sounded stunning. The shutter sound itself is significantly different than the predecessor. It’s much lighter and softer-feeling, and less of a solid “click” than on the original.
