New Olympus US deals reminder: E-P5, OMD and almost all lenses discounted.

Share

In case you missed it: Yesterday Olympus launched a huge list of new price drops. And this includes the just announced E-P5…maybe to contrast the GX7 launch? If that was the goal than they didn’t achieve it. The GX7 (and discounted G5) still sells way better according to Amazon ranking (Click here).

(FT5) New High End OMD is also the E-5 successor (hybrid MFT and FT mount).

Share

It’s almost a year now that we speculate about a new Olympus hybrid mount camera. And finally I got multiple feedbacks from sources saying that indeed Olympus will launch a High End OMD camera in September that will have 100% full support for both MFT and FT lenses. And surprise, the High End OMD also replaces the current Olympus E-5 FT camera! The High End OMD is placed a step above the current Olympus E-M5. The High End OMD doesn’t replace the E-m5 and the E-m5 will get replaced in 2014.

So what about the mount? I am still not 100% sure on this but it seems that the new High End OMD has some sort of hybrid MFT and FT mount. How this should work I don’t know yet. Hope more sources can read this post and answer that question soon. Thanks!

E-PL6 for sale in Europe. GX1 body almost for free in Germany!

Share

I didn’t know that Olympus would sell the E-PL6 in Europe too! You can find it in Stock right now at Fotomundus (Germany) and Topshot (Finland). The E-Pl6 only has some minor improvements like ISO 100 and Level Gauge. Don’t know yet if it will be sold in North America too.

And an absolute great European deal is the GX1 with X zoom for 399 Euro at Wexcameras Germany. Basically you get the camera almost for free!
