Personal note: Full of Vacation and Work


Dear readers!

I just wanted to let you know that since early July I am travelling a lot, a bit for vacation and a bit for work. I am doing my best to keep this website up to date but the next eight days will be even more busy than usual. So please excuse me if I can’t answer all your comments and emails. And also sorry if I will forget to publish some of the links you send to me. All my effort will now go to rumors only, Panasonic GF pro, Olympus PEN pro, Fuji and of course all the upcoming lenses (there will be many coming in August-September!).

Thanks for your understanding!

    All good by me Admin. Many thanks!

  • Out of Focus

    Rumors only? Sounds perfect! Thanks a lot for the good work!

    Just remember: Don’t risk, life, job or family for rumors. We readers would have to feel pretty bad for pushing you to deliver more and more exciting news.

      My girlfriend is an angel, and deserves it to have quiet vacations with me! And it is also good for all of you if I come back at work relaxed!

  • bright wide angle

    any update on that bright wide angle – I ask b/c 12/2.0 just hit the stores. Is it safe to buy it NOW or similar (and/or brighter/faster) lens coming from Panny, for example Panny Leica 12mm f/1.4 :)


    • admin

      There will be a wide angle but I have no reliable specs yet. Sorry :(

      • bright wide angle

        Thx, I think I’ll wait till Panny shows their toys along with “GF Pro”.

      • iMikl

        Panny already has a 14mm. Hopefully their upcoming new wide prime will be even wider than Olympus’ 12mm.
        Any idea about the focal length?

  • Fotouser

    With the m4/3rds gearing up to be a major tour-de-force, you do have a lot of work after you come back.

    Take care and have fun.

    Thanks for a great rumor year, Admin. Be sure to take some time to put your feet up, relax, have some fun!

  • On Olympus roadmap is the also fisheye so come soon.

    And good holiday Admin :-)

  • Admin, you sure deserve your 6 weeks off like the rest of us!

    Please don’t neglect the GH2 hack. We are set for some major break throughs today. I think the GH2 hack could be just as important as any of the new product announcements.

  • SteveD

    Have a good time and relax.

  • shep

    Ale, I am shocked that you are taking a vacation. We all expect that you will be on the rumors job 24 hours a day for $1 an hour, in order to keep us fully informed!!

    Seriously, thanks for everything. You do a wonderful job. Have a fine vacation with your girlfriend.

    SIX WEEKS?!? You Europeans have it good. We could and should learn from you.
    Here in the USA, we’re lucky to get 6 days.
