“There seems to be no real image quality issues with using the Speed Booster and for low-light work – a real treat. With DX lenses and the 0.71x magnification of the Speed Booster, you have a lot more wide options for the Olympus system.”
P.S.: A Lens Turbo version should arrive by end of this year. Save this search on Slidoo to get notified when it’s available on eBay.
While the Panasonic GX7 specs are well known (announcement in late August) we are still in the dark when it comes to talk about the new Olympus cameras. For now we got rumors from anonymous soruces about a new entry level OMD and a new FT camera.
Today two trusted sources confirmed that Olympus will announce new products the second week of September. I hope they can soon share us some details about the new cameras and elnses too!
Rumored OMD entry level info:
– Same shape as the E-M5
– Same 16MP sensor
– Built.in EVF with lower resolution EVF (compared to the 2.3 from the OMD)
– 2 axes stabilization
– no weather sealing

Today 43rumors reader Roberto posts that extremely long and detailed Yasuhara Nanoha X5 MFT lens test. This lens costs $499 (at BHphoto) and isn’t certainly a lens for the mass. But you can do some great things with it! So click on the link below to read the full test.
As usual new MFT cameras are expensive to buy. But at least in US you can grab second generation cameras for a ridiculous price. The best selling deal of the moment is the G5 double lens kit at Amazon US (Click here). You pay $478 /and you also get an additional 2% reward). If you count the price you pay for the single lenses you will get the G5 for $100 only.
If you watch that mirrorless Amazon ranking (Click here) you will see the discounted G5, E-P3 and E-Pl3 trio are the most sold MFT cameras.
The new GX7 will be priced above $1,000. Wait 16 months and it will be priced less than $500 :)
