Fujinon MK For m43

Duclos Lenses and MTF services are offering conversion services for the excellent Fujinon MK E-mount lenses. According to Fujifilm, the results look great but they can’t guarantee that the quality is on par with E or X Mount. This should be a great option for Panasonic GH5 owners.

Profoto A1 For Olympus Kinda… Maybe 2018?

Profoto’s announcement of the Profoto A1 a few days ago was very much like announcements of old, with Canon/Nikon models confirmed and no other make mentioned. So fans took to social media to figure out what happened to Profoto’s recent expanded support and Olympus support is the foggiest soo far.

It sounds like you can use the current Profoto Olympus Air remote with the Nikon/Canon Profoto A1, but they don’t have a firm answer about a dedicated unit. This differs from the responses I found about Sony and Fujifilm, which was 2018. Will Profoto release an Olympus Profoto A1 in 2018? Maybe 2019? Time will tell.

Olympus OM-D EM-10 Mark III Preliminary Dynamic Range Comparison

Photons on Photos is quickly becoming the best source for camera dynamic range performance information and they just listed their preliminary measurements for the Olympus OM-D EM-10 Mark III and it’s a mild improvement over the original. Their preliminary results tend to be a bit conservative and I will post the final results when they are available, but for now, this is about what you should expect. Most micro four thirds cameras hover around the same range, including the flagship OM-D E-M1 Mark II. You can manipulate the results for yourself here.
