First full GM1 reviews by Camera.reviewed and Blunty.

Share

The video on top is Blunty’s full Panasonic Gm1 review. And also Cameras.reviewed (Click here) posted their final GM1 review:

“Considering how well it did in our lab tests, it’s light on price, too. For the same cost as an RX100 II, you get a bigger sensor, better image quality, and great lens compatibility. Either as a premium entry point or a companion camera, the GM1 delivers adorable good looks paired with admirable performance at a reasonable price.”

P.S.: Some new image samples at Fotopolis.

GM1 preorder list:
In US at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto.
In Europe at Amazon Germany, Wex Germany, Amazon UK, Fotohanskeuzekamp, Cyberphoto Sweden and Wex UK.

Schneider confirms MFT lenses are coming in 2014.

Share

43rumors reader Jan asked Schneider when they expect to release the MFT lenses. This is their official answer that supports the rumor we posted a while ago:

Many thanks for your interest in our M43 lens.
From today’s perspective the lens is expected  in 2014.
Thank you for your kind understanding and patience.

As I told you before there may be some changes on the original lens specs (14mm f/2.0 the 30mm f/1.4 and the Macro 60mm f/2.4). And I secretly hope the impossible, a Xenon 16mm f/1.2   :)

Current Schneider lenses (non MFT mount):
Xenon 16mm f/1.2 (Click here to see on eBay).
Xenon 25mm f/0.95 (Click here to see on eBay).
Curtagon 35mm f/2.8 (Click here to see on eBay).
Componon 50mm f/1.4 (Click here to see on eBay).
Xenon 50mm f/1.9 (Click here to see on eBay).
Xenar 50mm f/2.8 (Click here to see on eBay).
Xenar 75mm f/3.5 (Click here to see on eBay).

Updated Stylus 1 preorder list. $100 off on GX7.

Share

It’s not a Micro Four Thirds camera but it looks a bit like the OMD and has a very handy 28-300mm f/2.8 zoom. I am curious to see if it will sell better (or worse) than the current XZ cameras. Meantime I updated the preorder link list: Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto, CameraWorldUK (Click on store name to check price and specs).

One more deal info: The $100 off deal on the GX7 is back at Amazon US, BHphoto, Adorama, Samys. And for the first time it’s also valid on the Black GX7 at BHphoto.
