E-M1 more popular than Sony’s A7-A7r series (Amazon ranking).

I know we have to take the Amazon mirrorless ranking (Click here) results with a grain of salt. That said I noticed something I didnt’ expect. The Olympus E-M1 has never been surpassed by the so praised Sony A7-A7r cameras. The E-M1 constantly ranks above them even now that the A7r is in Stock for the first time.

Olympus has done it right with the E-M1. Hope they can repeat the success with the new OMD camera that is going to be announced soon!

(FT5) Rumor correction: The new OMD entry level camera is the E-M5 successor!

Share

Sorry guys for the confusion but now I am 100% sure about it: The new OMD camera coming in January is also the E-M5 successor. The confusion started because two of my sources have been told the E-M5 will still remain on sale for 2014. This lead us to believe that the new OMD camera will not replace the E-m5. As I learned tonight after a short discussion with trusted sources is that the new OMD will indeed be the E-M5 successor. But the original E-M5 camera will remain in production and available for sales even after the successor announcement.

Also confirmed: it has the same E-M5 sensor with E-M1 imaging processor.

Again back in Stock: 12-40mm lens. National Geogaphic Photographer Jay Dickman loves the lens!

Share

Quick note for US readers: The 12-40mm is in Stock at Amazon US (Click here). And this time they have a much larger Stock available. By the way, National Geographic photographer and Pulitzer prize winner travels with EM-1 and loves the 12-40mm: Firstlightworkshop.com:

The E-M1 has been a fantastic camera for this assignment.  The handling is superb and the image quality is spectacular.  I’ve been really impressed by the noise-handling of the camera — 3200 looks tremendous.  Plus, the 12-40mm f2.8 has become my favorite lens to use, especially if carrying only one camera.

Small update about the soon to be announced new OMD entry level camera. According to one source it will be already announced in January. UPDATE: I corrected the original rumor. The new OMD has the same processor as the E-M1. and the same sensor as theE-M5. The source also confirmed the camera will NOT replace the E-M5. The E-M5 will continue to be sold and likely be replaced at Photokina.
