(FT5) First picture of the new 12-40mm f/2.8 Olympus MFT lens! And new pics of the E-M1.



And here it is the new 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO MFT lens from Olympus! And it looks great on the new E-M1 don’t you think? The images have been leaked (and now removed) in Japan (at “2ch“). Camera and Lens will be announced around September 10-11. What I still don’t know is the price of the new lens but I have been assured that the IQ is better than the one of the Panasonic 12-35mm X lens. And the new Olympus lens really doesn’t look that big after all!

Thanks Lin and Masato for finding these pics!

GX7 vs E-M5 test. Curious, they have different sensor sizes?



Image courtesy DSLRmagazine.

DSLRmagazine (google translation here) compared the new GX7 vs the E-M5. The tester writes that he expected a better result from the newer GX7 sensor. The image quality is more or less on par, the E-M5 has a better saturation and clarity, and the GX7 looks a tiny bit better at High ISO settings. They also discovered that the sensor size seems to be slightly different between the two cameras. The GX7 is a tiny bit more wide angle compared with the E-M5 (same lens used). Here is the GIF that proves it:


Do you know guys why it is so?

(FT5) More details about the new Olympus 12-40mm f/2.8 lens.


Our Japanese friends at Digicaminfo got some details about the new Olympus 12-40mm f/2.8 lens:

  • The name of the lens is “Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 12-40mm F2.8 PRO
  • Filter diameter of 62mm
  • Has the L-Fn (Lens Function) button.
  • The color of the lens barrel is Black

As you know the Panasonic 12-35mm X lens has a 58mm filter size. This will definitely be a bigger lens! Let’s hope the price ins’t “bigger” too :)
