The GM5 is currently on closeout deal at Adorama.
According to the french website Lesnumeriques, Panasonic will drop the GM and GF camera line to focus solely on G, GX and GH lines. This should lead to more clarity and logic for the consumers.
And to distinguish the level range they will use that digit code: “1 digit for professional housing, 2 digits to the expert, 3 digits for the amateur and 4 digits for the beginner. This is exactly the logic chosen by Canon for its EOS SLR.” says Lesnumeriques.
Yep this makes sense…
Roberto spotted the GH4 on clearance in a UK store at Currys in Purley, Croydon. That store is no more ordering a new Stock of GH4 cameras and is likely to wait til the GH5 gets announced. Photokina is coming, let’s just hope Kumamoto didn’t delay the GH5 shipment time!
I just found a brand newly published Olympus patent describing the a new f/1.4 prime lens line for a yet non existing Olympus Full Frame system! The lenses do have a highly complex lens design suggesting these will deliver a high quality performance. The patented lens versions are:
17mm f/1.4 (7 cm total lens lenght)
25mm f/1.4 (8 cm total lens lenght)
25mm f/1.4 (13 cm total lens lenght)
28mm f/1.4 (13 cm total lens lenght)
35mm f/1.4 (13 cm total lens lenght)
50mm f/1.4 (13 cm total lens lenght)
So the question seems no more to be “if” Olympus will make a FF system but more when they will announce it!
