Devialet Gold Phantom Opera de Paris


$4,890, available middle of this month

Luxury speakers-maker Devialet has launched a limited edition of its Phantom speakers to celebrate its partnership with the Paris Opera.

Drawing on the iconic gilded interiors of the Paris Opera auditorium, each Gold Phantom Opera de Paris features the Paris Opera logo with its gold leaf gills finished by Ateliers Gohard - the company behind the gold restoration in Paris' Palais Garnier opera house.

Only 38 units of these speakers will be available at Devialet's flagship store at Marina Bay Sands from the middle of this month.

Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 17mm f/1.2 Pro


Pricing to be confirmed, available this month

If you are using a Micro Four Thirds (MFT) mirrorless camera, you might want to get the new Olympus 17mm f/1.2 lens.

This MFT lens consists of 15 glass elements in 11 groups for great image resolution. It offers a large aperture of f/1.2 that allows more light to enter the image sensor and creates a good-looking "bokeh" effect or shallow depth of field.

It is also resistant to dust, water splashes and cold temperatures down to minus 10 deg C.
