BHphoto just postponed the G5 release to August 20th (before it was August 10th).
While we have to wait one month to see the new GH3 let’s see what the GH2.5 (so named by a Panasonic manager) can do 😉
Trustedreviews posted the full G5 review: “Build quality is very good, the touch screen functionality makes it a fun and intuitive camera to use and overall image quality also impresses. Add to this the camera’s fast AF performance, flexible vari-angle screen and useful 6fps burst speed and the G5 adds up to a tempting package.”
Yesterday I wrote you about my E-7 release “troubles”. Two sources were so kind to explain me what’s going on with the E-7 development and release. It’s quite an interesting story! Here it is:
“According to those sources, the E-7 has been in development for quite some time now, and got initially canceled early this year. Both claim that the “Sony sensor” and IBIS were originally developed for the E-7 and that the E-M5 is in fact a spin-off of this technology. Once the E-M5 was established as a product, it was decided to continue the introduction of the E-7 anyway since it was as nearly finished, and mostly needed testing. Neither source mentioned an introduction date, but suggested that ‘this year would be extremely likely because it is already being tested.”
I guess the chance to see a new E-5 successor at Photokina is now getting bigger…
I already posted this on MirrorlessRumors last week but I want to mention it here for you too. A guy named “Andreas” sent me a link to an eBay project called Mirrorless-deals.com (Click here). It contains complex filters that can sort out all the unnecessary stuff while searching for cameras or lenses. Examples:
The video on top is a report from CNN. It shows an E-M5 photographer that took a photo that had the famous “viral effect”. A nice free advertising for Olympus 🙂
P.S.: The Photographer contacted me to say he is actually a regular 43rumors reader. His website is http://patlu.com.
You may remember the dpreview forum post where Axel from DxOmark said that: “the lab is working on it but noticed some surprising measures and is analyzing the root cause.” One month passed and we still have no news. And we porobably have to wait a long time more because the DxOmark team just leaved for a (well deserved) vacation.
Meantime Echenique (Click here) posted a full E-m5 review: “All it really needs is focus peaking and better continuous AF performance and they will have a real winner on their hands.”
