Contact form fixed. Waiting to get more GH3-PEN-Lens and “more”(?) rumors!


If you know 43rumors you know that sometimes server does crash and after that I spend a lot of time on fixing things. I am working on a new long term solution by redesigning the website and updating the server power. But this is costly and I can’t do this right now (I am saving my money for it).

For sources:
Anyway, what matters is that my sources can read this post to know that the anonymous contact form on the right sidebar is working again. You know it doesn’t store any info like IP address and you don’t have to share me your real name (just pickup a fake one). You can also create a fake gmail account and send me messages at

For sources and readers:
I am working on new rumors about the GH3, E-PM2, EPL5 cameras plus the new lenses (like the telephoto lens from Panasonic). It’s only one month to go until the announcement and new rumors and even leaks could arrive any time soon. It’s going to be a busy time!

  • dimp

    so, there definitely won’t be an e-p5?

    • pfeddeh

      There has to be a succesor in the E-Px series. Having a PEN mini and a PEN light without a PEN is kind of silly.

  • ED

    GH3 pplzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz..need to buy a cam soon and would like to compare it to em5 b4 i make my final choice.
    Is there another high end camera coming after the gh3 (by either pany or olympus)or is that the high end one mentioned a while back?

    • uberzone

      A high end Olympus camera has been rumored. But don’t expect that or the GH3 to be available before the beginning of next year. If you don’t care about video and absolutely need a camera now, go with the OM-D. I had a chance to use one the other day and it is very nice indeed. I for one will be waiting until the end of the year to make my decision however.

      • ED

        Next year seems too far away id rather have it now lol but I want a camera for both stills and video , coz i wont be upgrading for a while after my purchase (would only buy lenses I guess). But at least I need to know the official specs of the gh3 and this other advanced model, so at least i will know if its worth waiting that long or go wih the OMD instead..
        Cant wait for the Gh3 vs Omd face-off :)

  • PEN goes NEXt

    first question to your sources: next PENs sensor is made by?
    second question: 3.5″ mic socket in PEN – reality or dreams?
    third question: OMD Pro Dec ’12 model – are they working on improving codec (to eliminate macro blocking that we see in E-M5)?


  • Robbie

    Keep up the good work Admin

  • Yun

    Yes , finally back to everybody’s lovely topic , Pana&Oly’s announcement .
    GH3 is a must but I still believe this is not the camera to compete against NEX 9 & the highend X Pro .

  • Will be waiting for the EPM2 and EPL5 specs. I hope the sensor and IBIS is the same as EM5. Those two cameras are great cheaper alternative to the EM5. Can’t wait for the announcement from Olympus. Keep up the good work admin.

    • rrr_hhh

      I think that the sensor could be the same, but that there is no room for the E-M5 5 axis IBIS in an E-Pl or EPm sized camera. They could however improve the IBIS, using some of the features of the E-M5 IBIS.

      They should work on an E-Px whith an integrated VF to compete with the Nex-7 likes. I wonder whether we will see that, or whether the OM-D line will remain the only one offering integrated VFs ?

  • Ringo

    What about rumored MFT version of glorious 12-60 F2.8-4.0 lens? Anything new (e.g., is it true)?

    • admin

      Nothing new. Keep in mind that this was a rumor posted by another website. Not coming via my sources for now…

      • Und das 35-100 Pana-X …? Wissen wir schon etwas für Specs?

  • caver3d

    admin – isn’t that a typo? I thought Oly would drop the E-PL5, and instead just go ahead with the E-PM2 and E-P5?

    • admin

      I wrote E-Pl5. You misread…

      • API75

        admin, still confused, sorry…
        “E-PM2 + E-PL5” or “E-PM2 + E-P5”??

        • admin

          E-PM2 plus E-PL5 :=)

          • API75

            Thanks… :-(

          • Any idea if future Pen cameras will use the BLN-1 battery that was introduced with the E-M5? I’m getting tired of keeping track of a flock of battery chargers…

  • Yesplease

    Anything on GX2?

    A good m4/3, with a viewfinder, without an slr-styled hump — I’ve been waiting for it since the gf1 came out.
