Jurek Ugarow tested the new Olympus 12mm f/2.0 lens with the GH2 (some parts of the video on top are taken with that lens).
As you know I am on vacation but you people keep sending me tons of links to news and reviews 😉
Mad a roundup of the latest interesting news!
I have been told that the Olympus 12mm f/2.0 should be in Stock in US and European stores by July 21st. Quantities should be very limited. Preorders available here at Amazon, Adorama, B&H, eBay.
The Olympus E-P3 is already shipping in Asia! You can see the first unboxing pictures at mobile01 (Click here). The japanese E-P3 manual is available at Olympus Japan (Thanks Ogawa). A bit of E-P3 cameraporn is available at DC.watch Robin Wong posted a new review article of the E-P3. ThePhoBlographer tested the Olympus EP3 with Panasonic Lenses.
Many readers here on 43rumors are waiting to see a rangefinder styled camera from Panasonic and Olympus. But Sony did it “right” and they will beat them on time with the new NEX-7 which should be announced in late August. How does it look for you? At least better than the current NEX cameras! The real problem for Sony is that they have no small lenses on their roadmap (That Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 is still way to large!).

Is DxOmark destroying the “legend” that Olympus used a new 12 Megapixel sensor? DxOmark (Click here) published their Olympus E-P3 sensor review: “We have tested the PEN EP3, the latest 4/3 camera by Olympus and the first results are now available. The Olympus PEN EP3 apart from changes on the exterior, it is pretty much the same sensor as the Olympus PEN EPL2 and Olympus E5.”
I would love to meet an Olympis enegeneer to ask him once and for all what they did and what they did NOT on the “new” sensor.
