In recent weeks, rumors were gathering that Olympus will release a new camera in January 2019, the Olympus OM-D E-M1X. According to 43rumors.com we can already expect the following:
The Panasonic Lumix G1 is a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera introduced in 2008 for the Micro Four Third standard. One could ask why I write a blog entry about a camera that was introduced 9 years ago? In the consumer electronics world this is a very long time with a lot of technology advancements. If you look at modern cameras, they have gained a lot of new capabilities. However the G1 was a milestone for the Micro Four Thirds standard, since it was the first camera introduced for that system.
I have recently purchased a used Olympus E-1 together with the Zuiko Digital 14-54 2-8-3.5 zoom lens. This camera and lens combo is 12 years old, technically outdated and boasts an archaic 5 megapixel CCD sensor that is easily outperformed by smartphone cameras (at least on paper when comparing megapixel numbers). So why did I buy it? To put it simple, it is a camera classics bundled with a top notch pro lens (that I adapt on my Olympus OM-D E-M1) that is very well-built and a joy to use.
