(FT3) Olympus E-50 coming soon???

Share

Now that’s a surprise! I finally got a Four Thirds (not Micro FT) rumor from a known source :)

He contacted me to say that Olympus developed a new E-50 camera. He didn’t share any details but he said it will be on market within the next couple of months. As you might remember the ex-chief from Olympus Watanabe already stated that Olympus will continue to develop single and double digit Four Thirds cameras. The E-50 will replace the current Olympus E-30. At least that would be a concrete sign that Four Thirds is still alive!

Samyang 7.5mm m43 fisheye lens coming in September (+ first image samples!!!)


Samyang just announced on facebook (Click here) that they will release the new 7.5mm f/3.5 Fisheye lens for m43 in September. And there is now also an official statement on their website (Click here). The lens provides a 180 degree field vision and is manual focusing only. You can also see the four very first image samples (again on facebook). Those images do look very good! We have no word yet about the price but it will be certainly much cheaper than the current Panasonic 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye lens. Click here to check the price of that lens: Amazon, Adorama, B&H, J&R, eBay.

One more editors note. Samyang makes chreap lenses with very high quality! The recent 35mm f/1.4 lens for Olympus is simply amazing. See the test results on a Canon APSC- done by Photozone (Click here). I do hope Samyang will make more of those lenses for m43!

Message to Samyang. Make some decent compact and fast primes and I bet you will sell tons of them!

P.S.: All Samyang lenses for Olympus can be found on eBay only and under seven different brand names (Click on it to see all Four Thirds lenses from the specific brand!):
Samyang
Walimex
Rokinon
Opteka
Falcon
Vivitar

Olympus 12mm f/2.0 videoreview at Digitalrev

I always enjoy to see those funny and not to much technical Digitalrev videoreviews reviews. They are good in highlight the “emotional” part of photography. The video on top shows their latest review of the Olympus 12mm f/2.0 m43 lens! Yeah, the price of that lens is a bit high but they liked it a lot! The lens is now in Stock in most stores. Check the availability and price by clicking those direct search links: Amazon, Adorama, B&H, J&R, eBay.

P.S: According to rumors the 50mm macro should be announced within the next couple of months but there is room for more of them! My suggestion to Oly…make a 17mm f/1.4 lens :)

P.S.S: Greetings to all the Digitalrev video team!!!
