Panasonic pleased us with many great new cameras this year:
Panasonic GH4 (Amazon, Olympus US store, Adorama, B&H, eBay)
Panasonic GM5 (Amazon, Olympus US store, Adorama, B&H, eBay)
Panasonic LX100 (Amazon, Olympus US store, Adorama, B&H, eBay)
Panasonic FZ1000 (Amazon, Olympus US store, Adorama, B&H, eBay)
That’s a pretty nice lineup and some of those cameras are yet not matched by the competition! So it’s hard to think about what Panasonic should do as next.
Now I am asking 43rumors readers. What cameras is “needed”? What should Panasonic do?
Please comment this post with your suggestions and I will sum them up in a POLL to post later.
Here is an example of my list:
1) Launch a $199 Panasonic GF entry level MFT camera
2) Launch a new Full Frame mount camera to compete against the Sony A7 series.
P.S.: A personal note on Full Frame. Like many of you I know well that 99% of the people doesn’t need Full Frame. It’s not going to make you a better photographer. But people also doesn’t need SUV but that’s what many do buy nowadays and that’s where carmaker make money. I think the move to FF is necessary from a business point of view. From a purely photographic point of view it makes little sense.
