UPDATE: These are the price info for Europe I got from a trusted source. Lepidi yesterday wrote that the Black 12mm lens would cost 899 Euro while the trusted source says it is 999.  There may be a difference between France and the rest of Europe:

E-PL5 14-42 Kit €699,-
XZ-2 €549.-
15mm f/8.0 €79

60mm f/2.8 €599,-

Speaking about Europe…Olympusmarket added new refurbished Oly stuff that includes for example:

(UPDATED) Price of the new Olympus lenses (France only)

Share

UPDATE: I have been told by a trusted sources that following prices posted by Pierre Lepidi are NOT correct. Lepidi answer is that these prices are correct for France only.
Here is the news from lepidi posted yesterday:
——-
– The 60 mm macro f/2.8 will be priced at 599 euros,
– The ultra-pancake 15 mm f/8 will cost you 79 euros,
– And the 12 mm f/2 black limited + hood + lens cap for 899 euros. That’s 290 Euro more than the cheapest price I found on eBay. Damn, Olympus makes us pay that hood a lot! Like they do on the current 75mm 1.8 hood.

Speaking of the 75mm lens. Amazon US (Click here) is finally shipping the pre orders and the lens is marked as “Temporarily out of stock“.

Panasonic now removed the official GH3 video and I thought it would be nice to post some high resolution screenshot of the new camera. You can see quite many details on them! There is even Philip Bloom using the superb Olympus 14-35 F2.0 lens (lens here on ebay) on the GH3…LOL 🙂
