Like it was yesterday the GF3 kit is ruling the Amazon Ranking (Click here to see). The GF3 deal will last until July 7th according to BHphoto (Click here). Meantime the GX1 with zoom lens got the next $7 price drop at Amazon (Click here).

For us Europeans there is a red GF3 body for 199 Euro on eBay (Click here). That’s the cheapest price I found.

And don’t forget t hack your GF3 when you get it!

New Olympus 25mm f/2.8 macro lens patent May coming at photokina?)

Egami spotted a new Olympus patent describing a 25mm f/2.8 macro pancake lens. It’s also collapsible, when you use the macro function the lens gets larger. As you may remember last week there was a rumor about a possible 25mm f/1.8 lens.

At 25mm focal length we can chose between the $599 Leica 25mm f/1.4 and a $900 Nokton 25mm f/0.95. Both options, a pancake 25mm and a cheap and fast f/1.8 variation would be a welcome addition to the m43 lens system.

Model Angela Baby get’s “fined” by Panasonic.

The Hong Kong website Sina reports that Hong Kong Model Angela Baby lost the contract with Panasonic and got some extra penalty charge. She was the one leaking the GF5 on her Instagram profile while shooting a commercial for Panasonic.

So no more leaks from Top Models guys, we have to do it all for our own now :)

“free” GF3 on top of the ranks!

For the price of the 14mm pancake lens you get almost a free GF3. That’s why this camera kit is ruling the Amazon Ranking (Click here to see). This are the deals we need to expand the m43 system. Wish I could found some of them in Europe too!

P.S.: GX1 with zoom lens for $519 again at Amazon (Click here).

(FT5) G5, 45-150mm, LX7 and compact cameras announcement on July 18th!

I finally got the final release date of the new Panasonic G5, 45-150mm m43 lens, LX7 high end compact camera (and other cheap compact cameras). All that stuff is going to be announced on July 18th (Tokyo time). It will be July 17th in USA.
As you know the G5 will feature the same G3 16 Megapixel sensor but there will be lots of minor improvements (and small design changes). I still don’t know if the 45-150mm lens is a pancake lens. And as I told you before the LX7 (although not a m43 camera) may be the major interesting news here. It should get a larger sensor like the Sony RX100. This is a very profitable market and the Sony camera is the most sold digital camera of the moment at Amazon (here is the overall ranking).
