Panasonic will announce a new Panasonic 12mm f1.4 Summilux ASPH lens on June 15! The lens has the “Leica” brand. The close focus distance is 20cm and the filter size of 62mm. There is yet no info about the price and possible shipment date. The current other 25mm Summulix lens from Panasonic is priced around 600 Euro/Dollars.
Stay tuned on 43rumors and follow the announcement live on 43rumors at 5-6am London time of June 15!
One more thing: There is yet no rumor about a possible camera announcement coming too. So don’t expect to see a GH5 tomorrow…
The russian company Zenit will soon announce a new Lomography 85mm f/2 LTM lens. These are the first images of the lens of the M-mount version. Not sure yet if there will be a ntive MFT version or if you need an adpater for this one.
The current Sony FT sensors listed at Sony.net.
A trusted soruce sent me this:
“I was told that the sensor in the GH5 will be fitted with the sensor out of the GX80, but with the ability to make the most of its output because of better processing and cooling.”
This means the GH5 will use the current 16 megapixel Sony made MFT sensor.
