The black E-PL1 is probably the most wanted version. Now you can buy it from Amazon itself or via third-party resellers (Ritz). Click here: Olympus E-PL1 Camera with 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 Zuiko Digital Zoom Lens (Black).
Few days ago we told you that Loreo would introduce a new 3D lens for MicroFourThirds (the FourThirds 3D lens is already available). Now one of our readers received that message from LOREO:
“The 3D Lens in a Cap 9005 (Micro 4/3 mount) is scheduled for shipment in mid-April 2010, and will retail for USD150 plus USD13 universal shipping to anywhere in the world. Shipping within Hong Kong is free of charge.”
You can order the lens here: http://www.loreo.com/pages/shop/loreo_products_online.html
You can find some Loreo lenses on Ebay (click here)
Finally I got some (bad) news from a trusted source. He told me the Panasonic LX3 successor will not be announced soon. He also told me that “the Panasonic LX3 is a camera which is very popular in Europe and US and less in Asia. So we should expect an announcement for Photokina (September).“.
Over one month ago a different trusted source told me about the LX3 successor. He know admitted he received false informations
By the way I am working on new rumor about Fuji Olympus and the Panasonic GH1. I will let you know soon what’s going on!
