(FT4) Panasonic will announce a fast tele prime lens at Photokina!

The image you see here on top shows you the new super quality (and a bit expensive) Olympus 75mm f/1.8 lens. One of my sources now unveiled that also Panasonic will unveil a fast tele prime lens at Photokina. I have no specs yet but I hope it will be a bit cheaper so that we can put some pressure on Olympus 75mm price. This is not the only lens Panasonic will announce at Photokina but I have no reliable info about these lenses…for now!

Olympus 75mm preorder and price check at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto, Amazon Germany and Amazon UK.

Comparing the E-M5 (Sony) and G3 (Panasonic) 16 Megapixel sensors.

My friend Tyson Robicheaud (Click here) compared the Olympus E-M5 with 16 Megapixel Sony sensor with the Panasonic G3 and 16 Megapixel Panasonic sensor: “I really wanted to see how these two sensors compared to one another as I have been very impressed by the G3.” Check out his website to learn more about the test!

Meantime I remind you that on July 18th we will see the new G5 which has the same G3 sensor but a newly improved processor. Let’s hope the new GH3 (again 16 MPX?) sensor brings a major improvement in RAW quality too!
