You can grab the last two Panasonic GH3 cameras with a $100 discount at Amazon (Click here). What a deal! Hope the G6 will force Panasonic to lower the price for the GH3 :)
With the soon to come E-P5 we now had four generations of PEN cameras. But you really don’t need to spend a lot of money to grab the newest camera. You can spend a lot less by buying “older” generation PEN’s. And a new Stock of refurbished cameras is now back on auction at Olympusmarket. Here is just a short list to some auctions (Click on the names to see the specific auction and price):Black E-P3 with kit lens Brown E-M1 with kit lens Silver E-PL3 with kit lens White E-PL3 with kit lens Silver E-P3 with kit lens Black E-PL3 with kit lens Silver E-PL3 with double lens kit Black E-PM1 with 14-150 lens Violet E-M1 with kit lens Silver E-P3 with double lens kit
many more cameras at Olympusmarket.
P.S.: I bought five PEN’s on that store. Never had any problem…
It’s always easy to check for deals by simply watching the Amazon ranking. On top you find the G5 mainly because of the following deal where you can grab the G5 with two lenses for $549 (Click here to see it). Soon that camera will be replaced by the G6. I am working on the camera specs but all I got for now sounds….”very promising”. Stay tuned!

What a surprise!
We were all expecting the camera to use a FT or APS-C sensor but the upcoming Panasonic high end compact camera with fixed lens and built-in viewfinder uses the same sensor size of the current Panasonic LX7! Apparently Panasonic preferred to focus on real pocketable size and high quality lens performance.
I ask sources if they could send me the lens specs of the new LF1 at firstname.lastname@example.org or anonymously via the contact form present on the right border of the website. Thanks!
Reminder: The G6 and LF1 will be annoucned in late April while the new E-P5 (and E-PL6?) will be announced in early May!

The DPreview team (Click here) posted the full Panasonic GH3 review. Their conclusion says that: “The GH3 offers the best video quality of any camera we’ve ever seen and does a pretty good job of making it available to a wide range of users. This footage is available without external recorders, making it ideal for in-the-field shooting as well as more formal rigged-up setups. It’s also a pretty handy stills camera with plenty of external controls, making it an impressively flexible package, overall.”
