It also appears to be in stock in the Sony mount option here at Adorama. Note that the Sony version does not include Optical Stabilization due to the built-in stabilization in Sony Alpha cameras; however, Sigma still prices the Sony mount version at the same price of the other OS versions.
Samy’s Camera has product pages and pre-orders listed for the Olympus E-PL5 and E-PM2, as well as new lenses with US pricing info confirmed.
The Olympus E-PM2 with 14-42mm kit lens is priced at $599 (link). The E-PL5 with 14-42mm kit lens is priced at $699 (link). As previously reported, both new cameras will sport a 16.05MP Live MOS sensor (apparently the same one used in the OM-D EM-5).
Expect official announcements on these products to hit tomorrow.
The Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di VC USD lens is a new 1:1 macro lens that will be available for Canon, Nikon and Sony Alpha mount cameras later this year.
As with the new Tamron 70-200mm lens announced today, the Canon and Nikon mount version of this 90mm macro lens will features Tamron’s Vibration Compensation, while the Sony model will not due to the presence of Sony’s sensor-based SteadyShot image stabilization system. As such, the Sony models is designated as the Tamron SP SP 90mm F/2.8 Di USD.
Pricing for the new lens has not yet been announced. I would expect this lens to be priced in the $1000 range. The current non-VC Tamron 90mm macro lens retails for $499 at present.
