Olympus.9mm F2.8.
8 elements in 7 groups.
Plastic and metal.
Distance markers.
No snapshot manual focus control.
No focus-by-wire.

New FZ1000 finally shipping in Japan. Bogus price at Amazon…$9,999!

The FZ1000 is now officially shipping in Japan through Amazon JP or Japanese eBay sellers. And a third party reseller is trying to sell the camera for $9,999(!) at Amazon US (click here to see it). Hope nobody will buy it for mistake :(

The FZ1000 is the cheapest 4K (larger sensor) photocamera on the market. Let’s hope for Panasonic it becomes a real big hit! And I bet future entry level Panasonic MFT cameras will feature 4K video recording too…
