The price for the E-M5 body only is now as low as it has never been before via third party resellers at Amazon (Click here). That’s even cheaper than the price you pay for refurbished E-M5 on eBay. The seller has a good feedback history so it’s a real deal.

More US deals reminder:
E-PM1 with kit lens from $399 down to $299 at Adorama, Amazon and at BHphoto.
E-PL3 with kit lens now $399 at Adorama, Amazon and at BHphoto.
E-P3 with kit lens for $449 at Adorama and Amazon.

“Nippon Camera” speculation for 2013: 7 new MFT and FT cameras to come.

Share

“Nippon Camera” published their camera roadmap guess for 2013. It’s based on a mix of existing rumors and their own speculations. This is what they write about Panasonic and Olympus:
Olympus: E-P5 in April. E-M7 and E-7 in August.
Panasonic: GF7 in March, G7 in August, GX2 and GH5 by end of the year.

I think they may be right on the Olympus roadmap (and that wasn’t really a big secret). And also the Panasonic roadmap isn’t far away from what we already heard.

Full Panasonic GH3 review at CameraLabs.

Share

Gordon Laing just publsihed his Panasonic GH3 review on CameraLabs (Click here). The camera got an overall score of 88% and Gordon writes: ” While many manufacturers are still looking to miniaturise their compact system camera offerings, with the GH3 Panasonic appears to be pursuing a different goal which is to produce a mirrorless camera every bit as functional, capable and robust as a professional DSLR. The Lumix GH3 is evidence that they are succeeding and is more than deserving of Cameralabs Highly Recommended award. Micro Four Thirds goes from strength to strength.

US readers stills truggle finding the camera in Stock somewhere. Today a very limited number of cameras is in Stock at Adorama (Click here) and via third party resellers at Amazon (Click here).

Reminder: more than ten refurbished E-M5 cameras with 12-50mm kit lens are for sale for 1,029$ on eBay US (Click here).
