Fuji X100 hybrid Viewfinder (something we would love to see inside a MFT camera)

I am sure many of you are curious to see how the Fuji X100 hybrid viewfinder works. And by the way, we were told that Olympus is working on very similar concepts. For example with the use of semitransparent OLED viewfinders. Fuji said: “We cannot say whether other companies are going to follow in our footsteps, but in view of the speed with which other manufacturers’ technology is currently adopted, it’s possible this might happen.” But those are just rumors so enjoy the video!

The Fuji X100 should cost around $1.000-1.2000. Click here to signup at Amazon to be notified when it becomes available for preorder.

P.S.: Fuji is part of the Four Thirds group!

(FT5) Panasonic 25mm f/1.4 without O.I.S and not Leica branded (the 12-50mm lens with Power O.I.S.)

The Four Thirds Panasonic/Leica 25mm lens

According to our trusted sources the upcoming Micro Four Thirds lens will not feature in lens stabilization. And unlike the Four Thirds version the lens will NOT be Leica branded! One source told us the lens should be available in April!

We have also an update on the 12-50mm f/2.5-3.3 lens. The lens has Power O.I.S and not Mega O.I.S. stabilization. The difference explained by Panasonic: “The newly developed POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) nearly doubles the hand-shake correction power of conventional MEGA O.I.S.”

We also heard that there could be one (or two?) more lenses. We are currently investigating those new rumors…
