(FT5) Panasonic GM5 and LX100 to be announced on September 15.

I hope the new LX100 looks like the gorgeus Panasonic LC1 you see here on top :)

Both new Panasonic cameras will be announced on September 15! The GM5 is a MFT camera with built-in EVF and on sensor stabilization. The LX100 is a fixed zoom lens camera with Four Thirds sensor and 4K recording. I guess Panasonic will also show their new MFT lenses: the Panasonic 35-100mm lens (article here) and Panasonic 150mm f/2.8 lens (article here). And I hope the rumor about a huge GH4 firmware update are true also :)

Note: Previously we reported about a possible 4K product announcement around September 5-6 based on that Henry-Panasonic info (click here). Seems like this “new product” has nothing to do with the LX100 after all…

(FT5) Zyoptics says they will make a compact (and high quality) 25mm f/0.95 MFT lens.

As you knwo Zyoptics makes the Mitakon 35mm f/0.95 (can be found here on eBay) lens. And at Photokina they will release that 42,5mm f/1.2 MFT lens you see on top.

But there is also a third lens to come according to one of their entries on the CHinese site Weibo: A Zyoptcis version of Voigtlaender 25mm f/0.95 is now under design. The lens is supposed to be more compact and light when compared to the Voigtlaender one but with the same optical performance. Attached is the message sent by Zyoptics to one of our 43rumors readers. The message means: “we’ve already been working on it. The volume and weight are very small.The IQ is same.” in English.

Thanks J.D. for sharing this!

(FT4) E-M1 firmware update will add “keystoning” feature.

According to one trusted source the E-M1 firmware upgrade will also add the new “Keystoning” feature:

“Keystoning will allow you to fix the distortion you see in architectural images. So buildings won’t “lean”…but the cool thing is you fix it in LIVE VIEW! You can see it as you fix it! Who needs a tilt shift lens? Olympus innovation is incredible.”

Next announcements: LX100 4K FT sensor and fixed zoom lens camera coming ealry next week. GM5, Silver E-M1, new 40-150mm PRO lens and firmware udpateds for E-M1 and GH4 coming right before Photokina (likely around September 14-15-16).

(FT5) Name correction: GM5 and LX100 :)

This is just a short rumor “name” correction:

1) The 4K LX camera is named LX100 and not LX1000 -> there was a zero too much from a trusted source :)

2) The GM2 final name is…GM5 :)

The LX100 is coming early next week. The GM5 right before Photokina start.
