With a little surprise I just noticed a first small $50 price drop on the Olympus E-M1 sold at Amazon US (Click here). And German readers have a “Blitzangebot” on the E-M1 kit which runs today only (more info here at Dealsrunner).

P.S.: And also the Olympus 12-40mm pro lens got a first $20 price drop again at Amazon US (Click here).

43rumors readers: Vote the best MFT camera of the year!


It has been a busy year and I expect the new year to be even busier. The Big CP+ and Photokina event will bring us many exciting cameras. New OMD, new GH 4K, new G and PEN cameras will arrive. But let’s have a look at what happened in 2013. The Olympus E-M1 is likely the best professional MFT camera ever released and it also is likely the best sold MFT camera of the year (always on top at Amazon rankings). The GM1 is a little jewel that can do so many things in such a small body. The GX7 is the one camera we were waiting to see from Panasonic but it has been released too late and in a market with many competitors. The GF6 didn’t make us jump from the chair when they announced it while the G6 is a great camera for the price. Unlike the E-P5 which is probably a too expensive camera for what you get. And we also had the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema camera for hardcore filmmakers :)

Now let’s see what’s the best camera of the year according to the 43rumors community:
