FacebookShare

The following picture has been leaked for a short time by a websites and a reader was able to grab it. I am not linking to the website in the hope I can find more pics.

As you see there are plenty of differences compared ot the E-P3 pics you can see here below:

Let me know what you think about the new control layout!

As a reminder: The E-P5 is going to be announced around May 9/10. It will feature the same 16 megapixel Olympus E-M5 sensor and same imaging processor engine. Autofocus will be improved over the OMD, it will also have focus peaking but it will not be weather sealed.

P.S.: The E-P3 with kit lens sells for $379 only at Amazon (Click here) and Adorama (Click here).

And here is the pic from the front of the E-P5 (already posted last week).

Panasonic G6 versus Leica R8. Find the differences :)

FacebookShare

43rumors reader Bigpicture (Thanks!) noticed how close the G6 design looks to the Leica R9 (here on eBay). Panasonic’s new “high shoulder” design makes look the camera bigger and more “serious”. It may helps in stores when people compares the G& with Canon Rebel DSLR. First impression is everything don’t you think?

The G6 wins :)

(FT4) 17mm, 45mm and 75mm lens to come in Black.

FacebookShare

The currently unavailable 12mm Black edition.

According to one trusted source the 17mm, the 45mm and the 75mm Olympus price lens will come in Black. He has no info yet if the Black version will be sold as limited edition (And Extra $$$) like the 12mm Black edition. Curious, that edition has been discontinued and is no more available neither at Amazon nor at BHphoto. I think Oly has learned the lesson and they will give us all primes in Black without making us pay an extra $$$ for it.

And US readers (unlike we poor Europeans) can enjoy some great price drops on theses prime lenses along some brand new PEN/OMD price drop. They pay $39 only for the Olympus 45mm f/1.8 (Click here), $449 for the new 17mm f/1.8 lens (Click here) and %699 for the 12mm lens (Click here). That’s the price we hopefully see on the new Black edition!

(FT5) After the G6 also the upcoming Olympus E-P5 will have focus peaking!

FacebookShare

According to multiple trusted sources the upcoming new Olympus E-P5 will be the first Olympus camera having “Focus peaking” function. That is something we just got on the just announced Panasonic G6.

P.S.: It seems highly unlikely that Focus Peaking will be added on current cameras like the GH3 and E-M5!
