Share

We have new Olympus E-5 reviews for you!

Robin Wong posted some image samples taken with the E-5 and the 12-60mm f/2.8-4.0 SWD lens. He liked the extremely fast and reliable autofocus because it “never failed to locked on target, and locked on it incredibly accurately“. He also liked the “lively, vibrant and yet very true-to-life colours” and the Jpeg output. Read the on street review at robinwong.blogspot.com.

Another malaysian blog called “Thru the Eye of the Zuiko” has the E-5 for testing. He also posted one image comparison with the older Olympus E-3. He used the Zuiko Digital ED7-14mm f/4.0 and the Zuiko Digital ED50mm f/2.0 Macro. A full list of images are available on Flickr.

E-5 preorders are available at Amazon US, BHphoto and Adorama.

Interesting review on Head-2-Head. They tested the two kit lenses (The Panasonic 14-45mm and the Olympus 14-42mm) first on the Olympus Camera and than on the Panasonic Camera (+ there is a final “ring samples” test).

New MicroFourThirds Tilt-shift Arsat lens from Ukraine?

As you know Lensbaby is already selling the new TIlt-shift lens via Amazon US (Click here). What I didn’t know is that Arsat made a Tilt-shift lens with MicroFourThrids mount! One of those lenses is currently available on eBay (Click here). I tried to found some image samples but I didn’t found anything. Did some of you test the lens?

(FT5) Panasonic has a new Lumix phone!!!

Our best source told us few weeks ago that Panasonic will come with a surprise. And finally here it is! Panasonic has put up a teaser site for its first Lumix-branded phone! The website is available here: http://panasonic.jp/mobile/lumixphone/.

Size (when closed) Height: About 116mm × width: approx 52mm × thickness: about 17.7mm
Weight Approximately 146g
LCD Full widescreen 3.3-inch VGA LCD
Sensor CMOS Approximately 13.2 million pixels (effective) CMOS

(Source Panasonic Japan).

Panasonic will unveil all details on October the 5th!

UPDATE_1: via Engadget: “It’s also noteworthy that Panasonic’s press release indicates a folding mechanism for this handset, which, given current trends in Japan, makes it most likely to be a clamshell device. It’s also got some DLNA voodoo inside and is coming out by the end of this fiscal year (April 2011)

UPDATE_2: Although this is a non-related (m)43thirds news I think this could have signifcant influence on future (m)43 camera development. Can you imagine a GF3/GH3 running on a new OS with API to create dedicated application for the specific camera? Am I the only one dreaming here? :)

UPDATE_3: It features a new high-intensity flash. Touch-operation is available during shooting and playback. Wi-Fi, microSDHC/SD and easy touch-share operations.
