(FT 4) UPDATED-> Leica to join the MicroFourThirds world with his lenses!

Share


Two different sources confirmed us that Leica won’t make any MicroFourThirds camera…for now! But “it seems” ;) they made an agreement with Panasonic to develop special MicroFourThirds lenses. Both sources told us this lenses will be very expensive….surprise surprise :)
Do we have some timeline? Yes Q4 2009 or Q1 2010 you will see the first Leica MFT lens
Do we know wich kind of lens Leica will offer us at first? No! But you know we are working on it…

UPDATE: One more (and new) source confirms that Leica will make few (expensive) MFT lenses. (FT3) Timeline: between November 2009 and March 2010 Leica should release the first prime lens.

P.S.: This last update cost me a very good deal in ebay. I received the email from the new source 5 minutes before the end of the ebay bid. I have been so excited that I answered him but not quick enough to go back to ebay and place my offer :(

E-P1: JPG vs processed RAW files

Share

Good morning!

Look how good the High-ISO images are when RAW files has been processed using Olympus Studio 2.3. Take a look here.

One more thing:
I will get my E-P1 in more or less two weeks. I will compare the E-P1 to the Nikon D700, Panasonic LX3 and analogue medium format camera. But you know my philosophy, this is just a “game” that in fact has little to do with photography. Pixel do not matter!
I choose the E-P1 for my Asian 2 months journey simply because it easy to carry with me all the tme and I need no more than two tiny lenses for my job (the 17mm 2.8 and the Voigtländer 35mm 1.4). Oh!…and feel free to send me YOUR first E-P1 picture!

P.S.: Again, so you know some good and cheap camera-lens store in Bejing? :)

In the past forumfourthirds.de were right with all their “rumors”. Now it seems the administrator of the forum got the news from Olympus themselves that they are working on an attachable EVF for the . That would be a very good move from Olympus!
