(FT5) First images of the new Olympus E-M10!

Share

These are the first images of the upcoming new Olympus E-M10! On top you see the silver version and below the Black camera:

Price in YEN should be as follows: ¥ 80,000 for the body only. With 14-42mm (new compact zoom) 95,000 yen. Double zoom kit is around 110,000 yen (via Digicameinfo). By using the current converter the prices in Euro and Dollars are:
– 560 Euro or 760 Dollar
– 670 Euro or 910 Dollar for the kit
– 775 Euro or 1,050 Dollar for the double lens kit

But I am pretty sure that as usual price in Dollar will be lower than the converted YEN price. For reference: The E-M5 body currently sells for $799 at Amazon US (Click here) and 700 Euro in eBay EU stores (Click here).

As I told you in my previous post the camera will be announced on January 29 at 6am London time. Be sure to be online at 43rumors on that hour to follow the event live!

SLRgear tests the 12-32mm Panasonic lens. Says: “small on size, but big on quality”

12-32mm vs 20mm size comparison. Image courtesy: ePhotozine.

SLRgear (Click here) tested the Panasonic 12-32mm lens. And their conclusions are pretty positive:

The new Panasonic 12-32mm ƒ/3.5-5.6 ASPH MEGA O.I.S. Lumix G Vario lens is a stellar companion to the tiny GM1. It produces excellent, sharp photos at all focal lengths, even wide open, and has minimal distortion, vignetting and chromatic aberration. And while the lack of a dedicated focus ring is a little disappointing, as manual focusing using the touch screen is a little slow and awkward, overall there’s not much to complain about with this lens. The Panasonic 12-32mm is the perfect match for the powerful and pocketable GM1 thanks to stellar optics and a super-lightweight, ultra-compact design.

You can buy the lens separately from the GM1 at Amazon (Click here).

GM1 kit store list:
In US at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto.
In Europe at Amazon Germany, Wex Germany, Amazon UK, Fotohanskeuzekamp, Cyberphoto Sweden and Wex UK.
