New E-M1 tests (Luminous Landscape and more).


You can now have some fun with the Four Thirds Matching simulation to see how the new E-M1 looks paired with a MFT or FT lens. The image on tops shows the camera with the massive 35-100mm f/2.0 (here on eBay).

And now back to E-M1 reviews:
Luminous Landscape (Click here) just started their Rolling E-M1 Field Report. And that’s what they write about the E-M1 for now:

“I’ll close today’s entry by mentioning that when I wrote my Panasonic GX7 review a couple of weeks ago I called it “…the best MFT camera yet”. It’s fair to say that this claim to fame only lasted a short while.”

Just an error: Olympus OM-D E-FZ1 :)


For a short moment Olympus displayed a mysterious “OM-D E-FZ1” camera name. It now has been removed. I don’t think this is a real name of a future camera. More likely this was a mistake…I guess :)

UPDATE: A source just told me that this was the internal code name of the E-M1!

Panasonic GX7 in Stock via third party resellers at Amazon.


If you are really desperate and want the GX7…NOW than you can grab it via third party resellers at Amazon US, in Black (Click here) and Silver (Click here). But if you wait 10 days more than it will (hopefully) ship via Amazon itself. Meantime a Japanese camera owner posted a first unboxing video on youtube.
