After Fuji X100 at Adorama (Click here) also BHphoto (Click here) is accepting preorders on the new Fuji X100 camera (Found via ThePhoBlographer).

Panasonic US has a super deal on the GH1. Take a look for yourself: http://www2.panasonic.com

And Amazon has three interesting lens deals:

(FT5) New competition is coming from Nikon (Pro battle between Olympus and Nikon)


Image on top: The analogue Nikon S2 rangefinder (Click here to see it on eBay).

Sorry if I post a Nikon rumor on 43rumors but when we just got a “FT5″ rumor about Nikon that will interest many 43rumors readers. One thing we were missing until today is a mirrorless pro system with advanced cameras that can compete against the best APS-C DSLR cameras. Now the same sources that usually are sending us top Panasonic and Olympus rumors now contacted us to say that both Olympus and Nikon will announce their PRO cameras in quarter two (Nikon will announce it in April)!

I repeat it, Nikon’s new system will not compete against the low entry Micro Four Thirds cameras like the GF2 and E-PL2. I posted a few more info about the future Nikon system here: http://www.mirrorlessrumors.com/exclusive-nikon-to-launch-a-mirrorless-system-in-april-with-sony-sensor/

The good news for us Micro Four Thirds user is that usually competition brings better cameras for a lower price. Let’s hope Oly will announce something spectacular for a decent price ;)

P.S.: I would love NIkon to make a digital Nikon S2. That’s how I understand the “PRO” characteristic.

(FT3) Tokina to release two MFT lenses with AF at PMA in September?


According to a new 43rumors source: “Tokina will introduce at PMA (CliQ) 2011 two autofocus lenses for the m4/3 mount. The first one will be a 17/2.0 or faster pancake. The second one will be a 8-16mm/3.5-4.5 or faster. Both lenses will feature internal focusing and a build quality similar to the excellent Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8. OIS and linear motor is under consideration as Tokina is out-sourcing, as usual, the technology to contractors. Price range is about 25% less than similar offerings from Olympus (17/2.8) and Panasonic (7-14/4.0).”

See and read the specs of the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 on eBay or Amazon.

P.S: Thanks to the anonymous source! I owe you a beer for that ;)
