ThatNikonGuy posted a set of GH3 image smaples taken at different ISO (Click here to see them on Flickr). I will leave any comment to you guys! I usually don’t care a lot about extreme High ISO but certainly those images do look fine to me. Keep also in mind that the firmware isn’t final yet! (Thanks Duarte for sending me the link!).

Two new interviews. Panasonic: “FF is possible”. Olympus “we will have new EVF technology”

Share


EosHD (Click here) published an Interview with Yoshiyuki Inoue, Senior Engineering Planner for the Panasonic GH3. Some info:
– still difficult to make global shutter
– Now the priority is primes.
– About the AG-Af100: “ that camera once was popular, but at this time not as popular.
– Full Frame: “I think it is possible with our technology, but we have to have MANY discussions on how to sell a mirrorless full frame camera.

Onfoto (Click here) posted an Interview with Toshiyuki Terada, Product Planning, Olympus Imaging Corporation. Some info:
– With the OMD series there is the possibiliy to creat both a lower and higher than E-M5 model.
– When asked if there will be a MFT version of the 12-60mm FT lens he said nothing specific at the moment.
– “we need m43 teleconverters for sure“.
– “we will have new EVFs that should satisfy even the most critical photographers.

 

Editor’s note: Panasonic stated many times during Photokina that they want to be competitive in the PRO market. But I doubt they will go FF any time soon! About Olympus EVF. I told you weeks ago that there is some strange rumor about a new kind of EVF. I hope to get some more details soon. But this secret product should arrive relatively soon…with the end fo the year!

$200 price drop on the 12-35mm X lens. 75mm lens in Stock.

Short break from the Photokina coverage because there is a surprising $200 price drop on the 12-35mm X lens at Amazon (now sold out!) and Samys (Still in Stock!). That’s a nice 15% price drop and makes the X lens sudenly much more attractive.

And the second good nes is that there are over nine Olympus 75mm lenses in Stock at Cameraland eBay (Click here) for the normal $899 price.

Dieter Knüttel interviewed Markus Matthes, Senior Product Manager of Panasonic Germany. You can read the full interview at Personal View. Here are just some interesting answers:
– He didn’t comment the question if the sensor is actually made by Sony.
– the OLED viewfinder and LCD have an amazing Contras of: 10,000 : 1. That’s double the contrast of the NEX-6 (specs here).
– HDMI output at 4:2.0, 8 bit.
– He said “many user didn’t notice the Multi aspect feature of the Gh3” What answer is that? 🙂
– Price with kit lens. 14-140mm for 1799 Euro. And 12-35 for 2199 Euro. Grip for 300 Euro
– End of November ” they will have sufficient numbers”

Hope it is true that there will be no more that 3-6 months Panasonic delay in EU and US countries!
