(FT5) Images of the Black 17mm and 75mm lenses!

FacebookShare

Here you have the images of the new 75mm and 12mm Black lenses. Still missing is the image of the 45mm f/1.8 lens. I am not sure yet but the price of the Black lenses should be the same of the Silver version. Note that two of the three Silver primes are yet discounted (at least in USA).

The 17mm f/1.8 sells for $449 at Amazon, Adorama and BHphoto.
The 45mm sells for $349 at Amazon, Adorama and BHphoto.
The 75mm f/1.8 can be found with a $100 discount at [shoplink 38467 ebay]CameraLand (Click here)[/shoplink].

But I think the price of the Black version will be the previous “normal” price.

E-PL6 might be released for Japan only.

FacebookShare

Digicaminfo reports that the E-PL6 may be released for Japanese marked only. As reported before the E-PL6 only has few minor improvements over the current E-Pl5. If you argue that this isn’t possible notice that this already happened in the past. A slightly updated E-PL1s was introduced in November 2010. Some of these “Japanese” E-PL1s can be found on eBay (Click here).

(FT5) New focus features on the E-P5 and new connect “trick”

FacebookShare

I have been told by a source that the E-P5 also has two brand new autofocus features:
1) Super Spot AF: you can now select an area that is even smaller than standard AF points. Ideal to focus on very small subjects
2) Focus Peaking: yoy already know what this is :)

The E-P5 also has some new features concerning “connectivity”:
1) Built-in Wifi. You can use the Olympus Image Share Application to remotely control the camera.
2) QR display: There is also a new connect “trick”. The E-P5 can display “QR codes” on the LCD screen. If you point your Mobiles camera on the QR code to connect both devices

 

Reminder: The Olympus E-P5 and the three black primes will be announced on May 10 at 6am London time. 43rumors will folllow the event with live updated!
