Apparently there is a Formel One version of the E-M5. As you see fromt he screenshot on top Amazon names the silver body “E-F1” (Click here to see). Dumb joke aside, finally I can share a good deal for my European readers. They can save 50 Euro on the Silver E-M5 body on eBay (Click here to grab the only one that is in Stock).
And now to some E-M5 news. Not that we need to read more rumors but there is another big website Photographyblog (Click here) that posted his thoughts ont he E-M5: “The OM-D E-M5 is the best Olympus compact system camera to date, and also a strong contender for best compact system camera full stop. It delivers a compelling mix of classic looks, excellent image quality, an extensive feature set and immediate responsiveness, with the camera so well designed that it rarely gets in the way of the creative process…The Olympus OM-D E-M5 is simply our favourite compact system camera to date, and therefore very deserving of our Essential award.” Also Tanaka from TheOnlinePhotographer (Click here) posted some first notes: “It’s also worth noting that the E-M5’s viewfinder is much easier to use when wearing eyeglasses. The NEX-7’s viewfinder disengages unless you keep your eye nearly pressed to the cup. The E-M5’s viewfinder sensor is much more lenient and a joy to use with glasses. Well done Oly!”
Leather case: As you know last week I linked you to the new E-M5 leather half case form Gariz. You can find them in Black (Click here) and Brown (Click here). I now found another new case from Kaza (Click here to see them on eBay).
