Panasonic Lumix GX7 vs GX1 Camera Comparison with Barney Sykes (Lumix G product manager).

GX7 preorders are still high at Amazon (ranking here). But let’s take a look to some interesting new GX7 info: On top you can watch a nice interview with Barney Sykes from Panasonic. Barney says this is the best sensor in the area “we are competing” (I guess he means MFT). And if you want to check if what he tells is true check out the first ISO Full Size image sample posted by ePhotozine (Click here). To make it easier for you I linked you to the direct E-P5 and GX7 Full size ISO images:

ISO 100 E-P5 and GX7 (actually 125 for the Panasonic).
ISO 200 E-P5 and GX7
ISO 400 E-P5 and GX7
ISO 800 E-P5 and GX7
ISO 1600 E-P5 and GX7
ISO 3200 E-P5 and GX7
ISO 6400 E-P5 and GX7
ISO 12800 E-P5 and GX7
ISO 25600 E-P5 and GX7

Of course these are JPG results and we know Olympus usually is a tiny bit better here. That said..

(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).

Share

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.

Share

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!
