Not only in US but also in UK Panasonic is running a great deal on the G5. Panasonic UK launched a new G5 deal where you can get the 45-150mm lens for free. I haven’t found a deal like that in other EU countries.

On the Continental side of Europe you can find a new large Stock of refurbished Olympus cameras at Olympusmarket. The list includes also some nice auctions like E-Pm2 superkits with two lenses and flash:

VF-4 in Stock at BH. New Olympus deal scheme at BH.

Share

For the first time the new Olympus VF-4 viewfinder is in Stock and shipping in US via BHphoto (Click here).

And BH also made a very nice scheme of all new Olympus deals (Click here) to see it. Also Adorama (Click here) and Amazon (here at the cameras and here are the lense) have a deals page.

None of the mentioned stores offers a $100 price drop on the Black 75mm lens. But you can get it at Willoughbyscamera on eBay (Click here).

P.S.: Thanks Don!

Panasonic-Fuji organic sensors has double the dynamic range of the Nikon D800E.

Share

The new Panasonic-Fuji organic sensor has a theoretical dynamic range of 88dB (29.2 EV!). The current best DSLR the Nikon D800E has a measured dynamic range of 46dB (15.3 EV) (Source: Adorama via PetaPixel). If the next Panasonic and Fuji cameras can really achieve such an impressive Dynamic than these will be a huge step forward! It will not only close the gap to FF sensors but on paper even “beat” them. Of course, it has to be seen that how long it will take until the new sensor can find his way in real mass production cameras. And of course the competition is certainly working on similar sensors too!

UPDATE: There seems to be a big confusion on the conversion between “dB” and “stops (EV)” A 43rumors reader shared that table:
46 dB = 4.6 B –> 10^4.6 = 2^15.3 –> 15.3 EV (Nikon D800E)
88 dB = 8.8 B –> 10^8.8 = 2^29.2 –> 29.2 EV (New Organic sensor from Panasonic-Fuji)
10 dB = 3.32 EV = log 10 / log 2
(see also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decibel)

P.S.: Short focus on real existing cameras: ….Adorama (Click here) published the full list of 115 newly discounted Olympus cameras and lenses. The same list but separated can be seen at Amazon (here at the cameras and here are the lenses).

Blackmagic Cinema Camera (passive mount) will ship this week.

Share

According to BMD’s Kristian Lam, the Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera passive MFT mount camera is finally shipping. But it’s still marked as out of Stock at BHphoto  (Click here). We had to wait nine months for that moment! I hope the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera with active MFT mount will not be delayed. Shipment is still scheduled for late July at Bhphoto. (Thanks Peter for finding and sharing the info!).

P.S.: All new Photography deals (including the super expensive and newly announced Leica X Vario) at DealsRunner.com.
