(FT5) High End OMD is coming!!!

Share

Finally an FT5 rumor about the new Olympus OMD camera! To be honest the latest 48hours I got around five OMD rumors from five different sources! I am now working out the specs and trying to triple check them before to post them on 43rumors. But all I can say for sure now is that a High End OMD camera will be announced. It will NOT be a replacement of the current Olympus E-M5. It is a high specs and more expensive camera!

 

I Thank all sources for their help! If they can, they may send me some more info about the new Olympus lens too? Thanks You!

DxOmark selects the best MFT prime and zoom lenses.

Short break from GX7 news:

DxOmark (Click here) posted the table of the best prime and zoom lenses for the MFT system. As usual takes these kind of tests with a grain of salt. There are different ways of doing tests and as we have seen from the past conclusions do change from reviewer to reviewer. That said results are not really a surprise for anyone here :)

Full Panasonic GX7 preorder list (with accessories). Plenty of preorders according to Amazon ranking.

I updated the preorder table with new links. Click on the store names to check out price and shippig date. As you see, it’s September 27/30 at Amazon US. Only UK has all kits available while US readers have no Black and no 20mm kit option. Nevertheless the GX7 preorders are quite high and the camera is the most sold (preorders) mirrorless camera at Amazon (ranking can be seen here).

Silver GX7 body at Amazon US, BHphoto, Adorama, Samys and Wex UK and Amazon Japan.
Silver GX7 with 14-42mm lens at Amazon, BHphoto, Adorama, Samys and WexUK and Amazon Japan.
Black GX7 body at Wex UK and Amazon Japan.
Black GX7 with 14-42mm lens at Wex UK.
Black GX7 with 20mm lens at Wex UK and Amazon Japan.
Silver GX7 with 20mm lens at Wex UK and Amazon Japan.

The GX7 accessories can be preordered at BHphoto (Click here to see the accessory list).

A GX7 photographers report can be read at http://panasonic.net/avc/lumix/dslm/gx7_special/kyoto/index.html. And a good news for Panasonic. Almost 50% of 43rumors readers are likely going to buy this camera!

Will you buy the new GX7?

A nice GX7 preview by WhatDigitalCamera

Most websites were not allowed to post image samples taken with the new 16 megapixel Panasonic GX7 sensor. There are 55 images at Photographyblog but at Panasonic’s request, they could not provide any pictures larger than 5 megapixels. But the website SuperAdrianMe posted some full size samples on Flickr (Click here). They also posted the first basic ISO comparison test (Click here). What do you think from these early samples?
