Adobe released the new Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5. It’s now available for preorder at BHphoto, Adobe US, Adobe DE, Adobe UK and all other Adobe country stores. US pricing is $149 for new customers and $79 for the upgrade. A preview can be read at Dpreview.
UPDATE: n future Adobe plans to shift all new Photoshop releases and upgrades on their subscription based Cloud Service. This is going to become very expensive for all Adobe customers. it’s time to look elsewhere for cheaper alternatives!
From what I heard til now the new OMD camera will NOT(!) replace the current E-M5. The new OMD will be placed in a different “league” than the current OMD. It will be released in early September. The E-M5 is still selling very well and will not be taken off production.
Drop me a message if you find some more bits about the new OMD camera!

Shattered Glass: “After reading your blog and watching many of the videos you share, I thought I might send you a video of mine dealing with the SLR Magic 12mm and 25mm Hyperprime lenses. I’ve seen next to nothing about the 25mm on YouTube, and on my video I shared your post about the SLR magic being sharper than the Nokton Voigtlander. Anyway, I hope my video can help out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-HjgWypeUpE”
Ivan: “Hi there! I made a short clip using with GH3 and Fujian 25mm 1.4 CCTV lens. With some work in post this combination gives you vintage, almost anamorphic feel. Given the price of the lens ($20 on ebay) I think everyone should have it. Here’s the video: https://vimeo.com/67524039”
Edward: “Thought I’d share my set of pictures from the new Sigma 60mm 2.8 “Art” lens. Previously I have owned the first gen 19mm and 30mm 2.8’s and were very impressed with all their lens qualities but found more suitable replacements in the shape of faster f stop options. This lens however is a real keeper as it’s quite the alternative to the 75mm 1.8. http://www.flickr.com/photos/comedyshots/sets/72157634014718030/ I’m a professional that has made the switch to Micro Four Thirds in a big way. All I miss is the slightly more instant shutter release and the battery life. The IQ absolutely surpasses my Canon 7D. edshots.co.uk”
Jerry: “Its not a rumor, its bug in Olympus E-PL5 when you shutting photos with hi aperture value (for example F12 in A or M) with flash, the live view shows totaly black picture (doesnt simulate flash). Its almost impossible to make composition… I think the problem also exist in P etc. but its mostly visible in A or M. View on the screen should simulate all conditions also flash should be simmulated. Im still waiting for any feedback form olympus tech.”
That’s going to be a busy shopping day! Olympus US just launched an impressive deal action. Too bad it’s valid for USA only! Here is the list of savings and don’t forget that there is also a 4% reward at Amazon (Click here to read the details). and at BHphoto!
John Brawley posted that new video and a new post on his blog (Click here to read): “I shot mainly at ISO 1600, but the first few clips were shot at 800. Lens wise I had the Panasonic 14mm F2.5 (first few shots) and the Panasonic 20mm F1.7 (second lot of shots before the ferry travelling left to right) then I was principally on the Olympus 45mm F1.8 but I also had the 12mm SLR Magic T1.6 and the SLR magic 25mm T0.96”
It’s an imrpessive camera for little money. But there is still a long way to go before it starts shipping (End of July according to BHphoto).
