(FT3) High End OMD Price around 1.500 Euro?

Share

Olympus first High End OMD could be priced around 1.500 Euro/ $1,500 (body only). That’s more expensive than other High End APS-C DSLR like the Nikon D7100 ($1200 at Amazon) or the just announced Canon 70D (again $1200). And the same price as the Full Frame Canon 6D (right here on eBay). If the rumor is correct and that’s the price of the OMD it better has to be damn good to compete against the two mentioned cameras!

Firmware updated for the E-P5 (and a new review).

the new Gariz E-P5 case

Olympus Japan released a new firmware update for the E-P5 that modifies the transfer mode settings for Eye-Fi cards. There is not other fix or improvement coming along the update.

There is also a new review written by ThePhoBlographer: “Olympus’s EP5 is their best Pen camera yet…by no means is this a bad camera. In fact, it’s a rather exceptional one. But it could have gone a tad further.

(FT4) There is also a high end MFT zoom coming along the new OMD announcement.

Image on top: the Four Thirds Zuiko 14-35mm f/2.0. Same quality can be expected by the new f/2.8 zoom.

Two sources told me that there will be a new High End MFT zoom lens. I don’t have reliable info about the lens specs but I have been told the lens has an f/2.8 aperture. There is no chance to see f/2.0 zoom like the Zuiko 14-35mm f/2.0 (here one Bay) or Zuiko35-100mm f/2.0(here one Bay) lens. But at least the new High End OMD will be able to use the full AF potential of these existing FT lenses.

P.S.: The new High End Lens and the High End OMD will be announced the second week of September!

(FT4) Possible E-M1 description

Share

These could be some of the changes you see on the new High End OMD that could be named E-M1. I also have been told the new camera is a tiny bit bigger. It will be also interesting to see how they will support the FT mount lenses! It’s said that the FT lenses will 100% be compatible with that camera. That’s why the new OMD will be also the successor of the current Olympus E-5 camera too! One camera to rule them all!
