A couple of months ago Holga announced new lenses for the Micro Four Thirds system. I just noticed that they are now available on eBay (Click here). For some reason I didn’t figure out the same lens is available in two different “codes”:
– The Holga “HLW-OP” is specifically branded as lens for Olympus lens (Click here to see them on eBay).
– The Holga “HLW-PLG” os specificall sold as lens for Panasonic G cameras (Click here to see them on eBay).
But they have the same specs so I think that it is just marketing making the difference here!
- Effective Focal Length: 25mm
- Aperture: Fixed f/8
- Focus: Manual Zone Focus
- Lens Type: Plastic
- Dimensions: 38x57mm
- Weight: 38g
Can someone already show us some pictures? I didn’t find any via google!
According to our source (plus one external soruce at Digicam) Olympus will announce the new PEN mini and the new E-P3 cameras on June 30 (That’s a Thursday). The digicam source still believes that there will be an E-PL3 too. I am still not sure about that. Let’s see what I will get from my sources during the next days…
P.S.: I had three very busy days. I will now read all emails you sent me. Will answer you all

The most intriguing upcoming Micro Four Thirds product is certainly the new Olympus E-P3. Let’s start with a good news first. Two trusted sources contacted me to say that Olympus organized a huge event for the E-P3 launch. It’s a two day long meeting! Would you organize something like that for if the E-P3 would not be something more than just an updated E-P2? Certainly not!
And here are the last two rumors I got from new sources. As you can see there is a huge contraddiction:
Source_1: The E-P3 will be released in June. It has an integrated EVF and it will be smaller than E-P2. No on-board flash though.
Source_2: I also can confirm that no one will have an build in viewfinder. Design and features should be a small revolution I heard by Olympus PM.
That’s why I am always careful with new sources! Let’s hope my trusted sources can soon tell us more about the E-P3 and the other mini Pen camera!
P.S.: I got a TERRIFIC rumor about Samsung! Will post that on MirrorlessRumors as soon as I can! Pro photographers will be VERY happy with that news. And Canon-Nikon should be worried for the very first time! This could be the rumor of the year
