Holga lenses for Micro Four Thirds now available!


A couple of months ago Holga announced new lenses for the Micro Four Thirds system. I just noticed that they are now available on eBay (Click here). For some reason I didn’t figure out the same lens is available in two different “codes”:

– The Holga “HLW-OP” is specifically branded as lens for Olympus lens (Click here to see them on eBay).
– The Holga “HLW-PLG” os specificall sold as lens for Panasonic G cameras (Click here to see them on eBay).

But they have the same specs so I think that it is just marketing making the difference here!


  • Effective Focal Length: 25mm
  • Aperture: Fixed f/8
  • Focus: Manual Zone Focus
  • Lens Type: Plastic
  • Dimensions: 38x57mm
  • Weight: 38g

Can someone already show us some pictures? I didn’t find any via google!

UPDATE: A reader sent us the link to his image samples: And a video is available here on youtube. Thanks Adam!

(FT4) Olympus announncement on June 30?

According to our source (plus one external soruce at Digicam) Olympus will announce the new PEN mini and the new E-P3 cameras on June 30 (That’s a Thursday). The digicam source still believes that there will be an E-PL3 too. I am still not sure about that. Let’s see what I will get from my sources during the next days…


P.S.: I had three very busy days. I will now read all emails you sent me. Will answer you all :)

(FT5) E-P3 will be presented at a two days event in late June.

A fake E-P3 image made by our reader Leendert (Thanks!)

The most intriguing upcoming Micro Four Thirds product is certainly the new Olympus E-P3. Let’s start with a good news first. Two trusted sources contacted me to say that Olympus organized a huge event for the E-P3 launch. It’s a two day long meeting! Would you organize something like that for if the E-P3 would not be something more than just an updated E-P2? Certainly not!

And here are the last two rumors I got from new sources. As you can see there is a huge contraddiction:
Source_1: The E-P3 will be released in June. It has an integrated EVF and it will be smaller than E-P2. No on-board flash though.
Source_2: I also can confirm that no one will have an build in viewfinder. Design and features should be a small revolution I heard by Olympus PM.

That’s why I am always careful with new sources! Let’s hope my trusted sources can soon tell us more about the E-P3 and the other mini Pen camera!


P.S.: I got a TERRIFIC rumor about Samsung! Will post that on MirrorlessRumors as soon as I can! Pro photographers will be VERY happy with that news. And Canon-Nikon should be worried for the very first time! This could be the rumor of the year :)
