UPDTAED-> Some more Samsung NX-10 details…

Share

Apparently the Samsung NX-10 with 18-55mm will cost 700 Euro or $800. That’s a lot cheaper than the Panasonic GH1 and I don’t know if we should expect a GH1 price drop soon (we already had a -$250 price drop in amazon US)
In the meanwhile dpreview posted some new NX-10 images. Try to compare it with the images taken with the Olympus E-P1. Let me know what your first impressions are!

UPDATE:
Where does the NX-10 lack against the Panasonic ?

It has no 50/60p and no 1080 recording.
Sound is mono only.
AF doesn’t work in video mode. UPDATE: This is wrong, AF works!
No swivel LCD.
And no video optimazied lenses.

P.S.: The Panasonic 14-140mm f/4.0-5.8 OIS Micro Four Thirds Lens is in Stock at amazon.

(FT3) UPDATED: Olympus EP-3 and E-520 replacement in Q1-Q2

Share


According to photorumors the EP-3 and the E-520 replacement should be announced in Q1-Q2: “I got some Olympus rumors: in the first half of 2010 Olympus will announce the EP-3 with new lenses. The Olympus E520 will be replaced in the first quarter of 2010.

I don’t know his sources but we already told you that Olympus will launch new FourThirds cameras soon. Our sources told us that many FourThirds cameras are going to be “updated”. Also the E-3 or/and E-30 could be “updated”.

P.S.: Currently amazon do have only three E-3 in Stock, Adorama has zero E-3 and BHphoto Out of Stock!
