E-M1

Olympus 300mm f4 PRO

Olympus has announced the development of a pair of new M.ZUIKO PRO lenses – the M.ZUIKO DIGTAL ED 7-14mm F2.8 PRO and M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 300mm F4 PRO.

The new 7-14mm f/2.8 lens (14-28mm equivalent) is a weather-sealed lens that’s dustproof and splashproof designed with the ruggedness of the Olympus OM-D E-M1 and E-M5 in mind. The 300mm f/4 lens will yield a 600mm equivalent field of view with the Micro Four Thirds sensor of the E-M1 and other MFT cameras.

Both new lenses are scheduled to launch in 2015. No word yet on pricing.

Aperture 3

Apple has issued an update to Digital Camera RAW to version 5.03, which adds RAW image support for the Canon EOS M2 in Aperture 3 and iPhoto ’11. The update also resolves an issue that prevented lens correction from working properly with Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 images and address a color cast issue on some Olympus OM-D E-M1 images.

The update is available through the Mac App Store’s “Updates” tab.

More leaks for the upcoming Olympus E-M1…

This time we a treated with an overhead view of the E-M1 with the 12-40mm f/2.8 lens attached.  Although, this is not part of the official Olympus teaser.

The 12-40mm f/2.8 lens will result in an effective zoom range of 24-80mm thanks to the 2x crop from the Micro Four Thirds sensor.

The Olympus E-M1 is rumored to be priced at $1500, which is $500 more than the Olympus E-M5 body. [click to continue…]
