Which shop has all three cameras? What add-on - The extra battery grip?


Thanks.

Yes, I meant that extra battery grip that could be attached to the right hand side. I kind of felt a bit uncomfortable to hold the OMD without the grip.

You got me right! Electronics here are like groceries and available everywhere! I visited a Camera handler and he has every range of Cameras that is available. Many times, I had to pass through his shop and just a glance at his window, you could see at least a hundred variety of Cameras.

Fuji X-E1 announced today. Here is a full review of the Camera

http://www.techradar.com/reviews/cam...1094565/review

It is interesting to know that the AF is much better and comparable to that of the OMD. I seriously doubt that.

I guess the Sony NEX 6 will be announced next week. Eagerly waiting for more updates on that.

First few tries with OMD-EM5, not with 12-50 lens, but with 14-42 lens

Just came to know that there is going to be a Sony NEX Pro Camera that will be released for this Photokina 2012. This new Camera is in addition to the already known NEX 5R and NEX 6 that was making the news in the last months. My guess is this could be the successor to the NEX 7 and would be a direct competitor to the Fuji X Pro 1. Looks like Sony is doing a lot this time with its new Cameras and a couple of new lenses.

Sony can go on making better and better NEX cameras, but where are the lenses? I really like their recent models, but without lenses, it is pointless.

I saw pics that showed the battery grip goes below to extend the height of the body. Is it a L shape that also extends the right side?

Ok India is not Germany, I will just go ahead with whoever stocks the OMD. Yesterday I was walking past GK Vale in CMG rd, and they did not happen to have it in stock. Claimed its not yet available in India. Anyways I just wanted to have my 1st glimpse of it.

Sony full frame Sensor Camera leaked information ahead of the Photokina 2012.

http://www.engadget.com/2012/09/09/s...-compact-body/

From the looks of it, looks like it has a fixed 35mm f 2.0 lens and a mountable EVF. Seems like this was the top secret and there is no new NEX announcement.

So here are the latest announcements from Sony:

Seems like the new Pancake 16-50mm power zoom lens comes as a kit lens with the NEX-6.

I am on the look out for evil cameras and still not decided between NEX-5N/R or olympus PL3.
How good is this news as now prices of older models are expected to fall?

Why not considering the NEX-6. It combines the niceties of the 5N / R and the NEX-7.

I heard that Amazon US offers $80 discounts on the NEX-7 and almost $200 on the NEX-5N.

Here is the link you can use to compare the Dynamic rang vs ISO of many cameras at once.

I am looking for a pocketable camera with excellent quality and possible flexibility. Olympus E-PL1 looks very affordable now. Considering that I will be keeping it with 14-42 lens most of the time and use it for pics and videos, is there a reason I should look at the newer models in the market?

I might look for tele lenses later but that's not a priority.
