Firmware updated for the E-P5 (and a new review).


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.


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!
