(FT5) High End OMD is coming!!!

Share

Finally an FT5 rumor about the new Olympus OMD camera! To be honest the latest 48hours I got around five OMD rumors from five different sources! I am now working out the specs and trying to triple check them before to post them on 43rumors. But all I can say for sure now is that a High End OMD camera will be announced. It will NOT be a replacement of the current Olympus E-M5. It is a high specs and more expensive camera!

 

I Thank all sources for their help! If they can, they may send me some more info about the new Olympus lens too? Thanks You!

For sources: Sources can send me anonymous info at 43rumors@gmail.com (create a fake gmail account) or via contact form you see on the right sidebar. Thanks!

DxOmark selects the best MFT prime and zoom lenses.

Share

Short break from GX7 news:

DxOmark (Click here) posted the table of the best prime and zoom lenses for the MFT system. As usual takes these kind of tests with a grain of salt. There are different ways of doing tests and as we have seen from the past conclusions do change from reviewer to reviewer. That said results are not really a surprise for anyone here :)
