$150 off on the Panasonic LF1.


Now that we got the Panasonic GM1 do we really need a compact, fixed lens and tiny sensor sized camera? If the answer for you is still yes than you should use the secret code “POCKETZOOM” to get the $150 off on the Panasonic LF1 at Panasonic’s website (Click here). ANd by the way, the LX7 also sells for $319 only at Amazon. Is the glorious time of these cameras past?

Thanks Cody for finding the deal!

(FT5) New Olympus MFT camera and new MFT kit lens coming in Spring.


Rumor work never ends! By early 2014 we expect a bunch of new announcements. Not only Panasonic is almost ready to launch a new 4K GH camera. According to two trusted sources Olympus will also launch one new MFT camera with a brand new MFT kit lens. I hope to get some reliable specs soon. One more thing: One source said it’s not a PEN!

Overall it sounds like both Panasonic and Olympus will NOT wait til Photokina to launch some interesting new stuff.

For sources: Sources can send me anonymous info at 43rumors@gmail.com (create a fake gmail account) or via contact form you see on the right sidebar. Thanks!

Anonymous:E-M1 review in Amateur Photographer, Nov 2, 2013: score 86%, the same as that of the Canon EOS 70D.

Spike: “I have written something to help people considering a move to the E-M1 from the E-M5; hope it might be useful: http://www.microfourthirds.info/2013/10/moving-from-the-e-m5-to-the-e-m1/

Burkhard:gerade habe ich das neue Fotomagazin gekauft. Die OMD-EM1 ist mit 91% Bewertungspunkten die beste jemals getestete Kamera und die einzige, welche die 5-Sterne-Wertung “Super” erreicht hat. Im Testartikel wird darauf hingewiesen daß sie besser ist als die meisten Spiegelreflexkameras.
