E-P5 studio sample pics and Ming Thein review update.

FacebookShare

If we are lucky than by end of this week the E-P5 will ship to our homes (according to Amazon US release date info). And now you can see some image samples taken with the production version of the camera:

Imaging Resource posted the full E-P5 studio shots. You can now use their comparometer to see how good or bad the nee camera performs.

Ming Thei tested the final production E-P5 and had also the ability to evaluate the RAW file quality and writes: “I still think they’re still a hair better than the OM-D in terms of color and tonality, and possibly the best I’ve straight-from-camera output I’ve seen

Sounds good! Now let’s hope Amazon doens’t mess with the release date…:)

(FT3) There will be a new entry level OMD in September?

FacebookShare

Two anonymous sources got hints about a new entry level OMD camera that will be cheaper (and not a replace!) than the current E-M5. I am working on the camera specs now but if the rumor is correct I don’t know if that is a bold move from Olympus. Anyway, it would mean that we can expect three new cameras to be announced in early September:

– Low end OMD model
– High end compact camera with fixed lens
– High end camera (FT or hybrid FT-MFT)
