(FT2) Olympus 40-150mm f/2.8 to be in Stock in mid 2013 only?

FacebookShare

A lens with similar Olympus specs is the Sigma 50-150mm.

As I told you before I expect Olympus to announce the new 40-150mm f/2.8 lens in January. Now Miranda forum user Forist DIS Ottawa writes, “For what it’s worth, I was at an imaging show today and two Olympus reps confirmed that a 40-150mm f2.8 lens will be coming next year. They said it appears on a list of confirmed future products. They didn’t have any further details but expect it won’t be available until the middle of next year at the earliest.”

I have no details about price and size of the lens yet. But the only similar lens I know is the Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 which costs around $1100 (here on eBay). I hope the lens isn’t as big as that one!

There is still a place on earth where you can buy a new GF1 :)

I still remember the day when the Panasonic GF1 was announced. It was September 2 2009 and I was sitting in a Hotel in China (close to Hohhot). It was a game challenging camera, a dream come true. A camera that quickly grabbed the heart of many photographers. Now the GF1 is discontinued and forgotten on the photography news site. But a 43rumors reader found a place where you can buy them new in box…in UK! The Silver GF1 is for sale at TheTechLodge (Click here) while display GF1 versions sold by TheWhiteGroup in Black (Click here) and Red (Click here). It may be not a deal to grab, but after such a long time I thought it would be nice to remind you of a glorious camera! And you have to read the best GF1 review written by Craig Mod  (Click here)!

GF1 eBay search via Slidoo.

Part two of Robin’s 17mm review. And save $100 on the 75mm lens.

Robin Wong (Click here) posted part two of the new 17mm f/1.8 lens review. That time his focus is on the Low Light performance of the lens: “The Olympus M.Zuiko 17mm F1.8 lens is a great lens, it is sharp, very technically well controlled, and works very efficiently. It is also not a lens I will fall terribly in love with, unlike the M.Zuiko 45mm F1.8 or even the 75mm F1.8 lenses.

Sounds like this lens is good…but not really grabbing the hearts of the reviewer!

And speaking of the 75mm f/1.8 lens…Olympus dealer Cameraland is selling four new Olympus 75mm lenses with a $100 rebate on their eBay Store (Click here). To get further info about deals on that lens just join our little new Slidoo eBay website (Sign in with FB account and set your search).

P.S.: For the lens buy the cheaper third party hoods are already made on sold in US ($7 on amazon), US ($32 better quality), Germany (ebay) and Hong Kong (ebay).
