(UDPATED: 2 GH3 in Stock.) New GX1 deal at Samys.

FacebookShare

While I got reliable info about the release of the new GF and G successors in Spring I still have no reliable info about the next generation GX camera. Wondering what Panasonic has in his mind. That said the current GX1 model is now available with the X pancake zoom for $649 at Samys (Click here) or via Samys at Amazon (Click here). There are also a few acutions one eBay where you can get the Silver kit for $599 (Click here).

UPDATE: Two Gh3 in  Stock for the regular price at 39mm (Click here).

First images of the XZ-10 compact camera.

And here is the one camera Olympus advertised as “Big announcement”. As anticipated on 43rumors it is the XZ-10 compact camera :(

The camera will be announced next week along other compact cameras and an updated version of the 75-300mm Micro Four Thirds lens. The XZ-10 has a f/1,8-2,7 lens and will be cheaper than the current XZ-2 model (here on eBay)…it costs 399 Euro. The 75.300mm lens costs 599 Euro.

(FT5) Olympus announcement next week.

FacebookShare

Sources confirmed that there will be an Olympus products announcement next week. But they also confirm that the “Big teaser” from GetOlympus is for the XZ-10 and not for a new MFT camera. The XZ-10 will certainly be a nice compact camera but we were expecting a bit more from what GetOlympus defined as a “Big Announcement”.

Anyway, along the XZ-10 we will have other new compact camera models and the new updated and cheaper 75-300mm II MFT lens.

That’s just my speculation but I guess Olympus new MFT camera with integrated EVF had to be delayed a bit because Epsons new 2,36 Million dot EVF mass production just started this week.

The 25mm f/0.95 comparison (Nokton vs SLRmagic).

43rumors reader Hugo had the chance to compare the Nokton 25mm f/0.95 and the SLR magic 25mm f/0.95 lens. He posted the results on his blog Beeldlab. In my opinion the focus point of the Nokton isn’t on the letters but on the white lens marks so it may not be a 100% correct comparison. I asked Hugo about this and his answer was: “Exact focus point might vary few mm. Voigt on the P, SLR on R, Nevertheless big difference.

That said the new SLRmagic lens shows that this company made a quantum leap forward in image quality. And as I told you before this lens is even cheaper than the Nokton! It will be on market in February for $799. But there will be a special rebate at launch and the real price will be $649. That’s $550 less than the Voigtlander Nokton lens!
