I already bought five PEN cameras trough them :)

G6 preorders ranking. GF6 to ship in July. Slrmagic 25mm in Stock at Adorama.

A first indication about the new Panasonic G6 popularity can be deducted by watching the Amazon rankings (Click here). As you can see the G6 managed to get into the top 10 of the most (pre-)ordered cameras. That result is way better than what have been achieved by the GF6. Speaking of the GF6, it will ship on July 1st according to Amazon (Click here). If you want to remain optimistic than look at BHphoto (Click here). They say it will ship mid June…but I suspect that’s really too optimistic :(

(FT5) First image of the new Olympus E-P5!

FacebookShare

Yesterday we had the Panasonic announcement day. But there is no time for rest now. The next announcement is coming around May 9th by Olympus. And there will be certainly the new E-P5, almost certainly a new E-Pl6 and certainly no new MFT lens. As I told you before, expect no built-in EVF, and uses the same E-M5 16 megapixel sensor. On top you can see the first image of the new E-P5 which takes some inspiration from the traditional PEN-F style (here on eBay). It has a more “classic” look compared to previous PEN models. As you see the standard kit lens will be the new 17mm f/1.8 lens (and there is a 14-42mm kit option too). AF speed has been improved even over the best in it’s class, the Olympus E-M5. There is a new external EVF too.

My personal thoughts on the new stuff:
The G6 is a nice camera although I would have liked to have the multi-aspect feature of the GH2. And finally we have focus peaking! I know some of you don’t like the new G6 design…but I actually do not dislike it (it looks a bit similar to the Leica S2).
What I really do like a lot is the new 14-140mm lens. A lot smaller, lighter, a bit faster and with Power OIS. All that for a lower price compared to the previous lens. That sounds great! For comparison, the new 14-140mm lens has the same size as the Canon 18-55mm kit lens.The Panasonic is x10 and the Canon a X3 zoom. You choose :)
The LF1 is certainly not a camera that stands out when compared with the competition.
