Three days ago I reported how Amazon launched the up to $100 savings on Olympus cameras (Click here to see the list) and Olympus lenses (Click here to see the list). The same deals are now available at Adorama and BHphoto too. So here is a quick roundup of the best deals (CLick on the store name to see the product):

Olympus cameras:
– E-PM2 body for $399 at Amazon, Adorama and BHphoto. That’s $50 off!
– E-PM2 with kit lens for $449 at Amazon, Adorama and BHphoto. That’s $50 off!
– E-PL5 body for $499 at Amazon, Adorama and BHphoto. That’s $50 off!
– E-PL5 with kit lens for $549 at Amazon, Adorama and BHphoto. That’s $50 off!

Olympus lenses:
– Olympus 14-150mm for $499 at Amazon, Adorama and BHphoto. That’s $100 off!
– Olympus 9-18mm for $599 at Amazon, Adorama and BHphoto. That’s $100 off!
– Olympus 17mm f/2.8 for $199 at Amazon, Adorama and BHphoto. That’s $100 off!

And from all these new offers the 9-18mm lens seems to be the most sold according to Amazon Ranking.

New GF6 image samples (including RAW for download).

Share

Pixel Peepers fanatics can now download some RAW image samples at Quesabesde (Click here). More JPG image samples have been also posted at FourThirds-User. Meantime GF6 preorder quantities aren’t really overwhelming. The camera ranks 21st at Amazon mirrorless camera ranking (Click here, note changing hourly!).

GF6 Preorders are now up at Amazon (Click here), BHphoto (Click here) and now at Adorama (Click here) too.

Curiosity: Too bad the Blackmagic Pocket camera ins’t sold by Amazon -> you can preorder it at Adorama (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here) -< It would have been nice to see if preorders of the Blackmagic are higher than the GF6 🙂

Panasonic wants to expand the “affordable” lens range.

Share

The guys over at DSLRmagazine (translation here) posted a report about the Panasonic event in Vienna.
Panasonic first showed some very interesting market analysis. The image on top shows the growing mirrorless system cameras market share. Asia is leading the innovation with over 40% of all system cameras being mirrorless. Europe follows with 20% and North America with 14% only. And Panasonic camera “owns” 17% of that mirrorless pie. And the strategy is also very clear with the GF and GX cameras goal to be to “Create New Demand” while the GH and G camera will aggress the DSLR market and focus on “Hybrid Photography

And on that image above you see that it’s Panasonic goal to expand the “affordable priced lenses to lead additional purchases“. That could explain why it will take one more year until the amazing 42.5mm f/1.2 lens hits the market 🙁

LUMIX GF6 Actual Shooting Video by PanasonicLumixVideo

Note: The new Panasonic GF6 can now be preordered at Amazon (Click here) and at BHphoto (Click here)!

After Panasonic  and FourThirdsUser also ePhotozine (Click here) published some GF6 image samples. It is still not possible to make a final judgment about the image quality. While it’s true that the GF6 uses the same GX1 sensor we also have to acknowledge that the GF6 uses a completely new Venus Image Processor Engine.  What are your early thoughts about the image quality?
