Panasonic GH3 leads the Amazon ranking. GH3 preorder in UK

Share

Today eleven(!) new cameras have been announced. But it is the GH3 that leads the (pre)order ranking at Amazon (Click here). It even beats the “cheap” FF camera…the Canon 6D. On the lens front the most preordered new m43 lens is the Olympus 60mm macro (here is the lens ranking).

The first European GH3 preorder is available at Wex UK (Click here). The price in Pound is very high! Let me know if you can find more European preorder options. Thanks!

Panasonic GH3: Behind the scenes from Philip Bloom on Vimeo.

In my previous post about the new lens roadmap I may have been a bit harsh towards the Panasonic marketing guys 🙂 I will make it good by saying that they had a great idea to involve famous photographers and filmmakers to present the GH3 (preorders here). There is a well made GH3 artist gallery at Panasonic.net (Click here). And on top of this post you can watch the Behind The Scene of the Genesis movie shot on the GH3. On Philip Bloom’s website (Click here) you can read Philip’s and Bruce Logan’s thoughts about the new camera. There is another video shot by Pampuri on vimeo. The Gh3 is really one of the best (if not the best) sub $2000 hybrid still and video camera ever made. The full detailed description page is available here. There are many info…like a description of the heat-dispersing design (take that overheating Sony NEX cameras!).

The GH3 should ship in November (at leats in Asia) and I am watching closely the Amazon Rankings (Click here) that soon will display how well the GH3 is being pre ordered. And here are the updated links to all newly announced Panasonic and Olympus stuff. Feel free to send me new links to other stores too! Thanks!

New 42.5mm f/1.2 and 150mm f/2.8 lenses coming 2014. Full Olympus/Panasonic preorder list.

In my opinion Panasonic marketing made a huge mistake by announcing the new 42.5mm f/1.2 and 150mm f/2.8 MFT lenses. Don’t get me wrong…the lenses are great! 42.5mm f/1.2 sounds pretty amazing. And both lenses should have in lens stabilization. The “mistake” was to announce that they are very likely going to be shipped in early 2014 only…..yes in one and a half year! The hidden negative message Panasonic gave to the m43 community is: “we don’t have any new lenses for you next year“. I hope I misunderstood this and Panasonic may announce them earlier.
One more thing: With all that buzz you may have missed my post about the three new Schneider lenses (Click here).
