(UPDATED) Messages to sources that sent me rumors today…

Share

Sorry dear readers If I am using the blog to contact the anonymous sources. But sometimes it’s the only way I have to ask them direct questions. I got two very hot rumors from two different new sources. Of course I have to doublecheck the info I got before to post them. But I have a question to one of the two sources:

New RX rumor source: Question: When is it going to be announced? UPDATE: Thanks for the answer! Let me know what High-Res means :)

FW update source: I only wanted to say…thanks ;)

It’s official: Olympus will develop lenses for Sony.

Olympus manager Hiroyuki Sasa confirmed at Toyokeizai (Google translation here) that they are supplying Sony with their camera and lens tech. Also AP reports that “The imaging sensor has already started to source from Sony to Olympus. And the lens [parts] and lens units will start to source from Olympus to Sony.

As I told you last week the first A-mount lens to come with Olympus design is the 400mm f/4.0. That lens will be launched in early 2014 along the first A-mount mirrorless cameras. Olympus is known for their superb Zuiko lens design that is second to no one. And they may do a f/2.0 zoom for Sony one day like their current 14-35mm f/2.0 (here on eBay) and 35-100mm f/2.0 (here on eBay) lenses. That would be crazy!

By the way, is there some other tech or idea you would like to grab from Olympus?

Great price drop on the RX100 in Germany. Still no successor rumors…

This is one of the (very rare) good European deals. You can grab the RX100 for 504 Euro at Amazon Germany (Click here). De facto that this isn’t a third party reseller deal or some unknown ebay seller makes me think that we will soon see price drops in other stores too.

I still have no info about a possible RX200 or RX10 release. There was a rumor from China pointing out a possible RX200 release next week. But it’s hard to believe the rumor is correct.

Thanks Fiebyrd for sending the deal. A live updated Sony deals stream can be seen here: http://www.dealsrunner.com/category/photography/sony
