43rumors reader Warren sent me this image of his broken Olympus E-P1. He wrote: “The main control wheel gave up on me, and decided I cant be asked to have it fixed as I have like 7 ep1’s, 2 epl3’s a
ep2, epl5, epm2, 2 omds and a few others kicking about, so really just decided to make an artwork!

The Olympus E-P1 was the first MFT camera from Olympus and is also the camera I still own and sue for my everyday shots along the superb Nokton 25mm f/0.95 lens (here ot find on eBay).

5D Mark III vs GH3 from Ryan Mancuso on Vimeo.

There a rumors on the Japanese website Kakaku (translation here) saying that the shipment of GH3 will be delayed in Japan due to a big delay in the production of “finder component” of the camera. (Thanks Onur for finding this). Don’t know if the info is correct. For now the GH3 is regularly shipping in EU and US stores and should ship next week at Amazon Japan too.
