(FT3) UPDATED -> Panasonic new camera announcement on FEB 18?

Share

I just received following information from a new source. He says Panasonic will announce the new MicroFourThirds camera on FEB 18. The new camera will probably have more to offer than the E-P1/E-P2 or GF1  ( ….I know that’s a criptic message but that is what I have been told ).

If you know something more contact me at 43rumors@gmail.com

UPDATE: I upgraded the rumor value from FT2 to FT3. I had the chance to contact the rumor source and my sixth sense says he could really know something!

Reminder:

FT1= Rumor which is almost impossible it will become true

FT2=Rumor from a new unknown source (not reliable and not confirmed from trusted sources I know)

FT3=Rumor from one or more sources which maybe could become true

FT4=Rumor from one or more sources which already gave me correct rumors in the past. There is a 70-80% the rumors are true

FT5= Very trusted sources gave me the rumor. There is a 90% chance it will become true.

One more thing: We also learned that trusted sources can be wrong sometimes and also Companies can change their decisions or maybe spread false rumors into the wild!

Rumors…no time for rest!

Just to keep you informed. Do not believe that after the Olympus E-PL1 has been announced things will be quiet on 43rumors :)
There is more to come! Panasonic will also launch “something” new and Olympus has still a Joker to play (the E-5).

OLYMPUS INTRODUCES TWO NEW ULTRA-COMPACT AND LIGHTWEIGHT M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED LENSES

Designed for Any Micro Four Thirds Camera, Including the New PEN E-PL1 Announced Today

CENTER VALLEY, Pa., February 3, 2010 – Olympus today announces two new additions to its ™ System lens lineup: the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 9-18mm F4.0-5.6 (35mm equivalent 18–36mm) and M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14-150mm F4.0-5.6 (35mm equivalent 28–300mm). Designed to maximize the performance advantages of the Micro Four Thirds System, the new lenses are significantly lighter and more compact – easily fitting in a jacket pocket.

The new lenses, made with ED (extra-low dispersion) glass for superior image quality, complement the design of the PEN® cameras, including the powerfully simple E-PL1, also announced today, making it the all-in-one package for consumers with any skill level, including those who are new to photography.

The Micro Four Thirds System standard meets the telecentric requirements of dedicated digital design. Light rays strike the imaging element nearly head-on for optimum edge-to-edge image reproduction. It also enables much more compact design than the Four Thirds System standard (or other interchangeable lens systems) because it reduces the outer diameter of the lens mount by 6mm, and the distance from the lens mount to the sensor (the flange back distance) by approximately half. As a result, M.ZUIKO DIGITAL offer uncompromising professional quality for capturing both still-images and High-Definition (HD) videos, and the lenses are exceptionally compact to make capturing your life more fun.

The super wide-angle M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 9–18mm F4.0–5.6 zoom lens (35mm equivalent 18–36mm) offers a 100 percent angle of view, and overturns the rule that super wide-angle zooms have to be big and heavy. With a length of just 49mm and a weight of just 155g, it is less than half the size and 60 percent of the weight of the ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 9–18mm F4.0–5.6. With its wide angle of view, including background scenery in group photos is a snap, and it can be used to create unique images with a sense of dramatically exaggerated perspective.

The high-power wide-angle to telephoto M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14–150mm F4.0–5.6 zoom lens is 65 percent smaller and 70 percent lighter than the comparable 10x ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 18–180mm F3.5–6.3, making it ideal for everything from portraits and indoor scenes to sports and landscape photography.

By maximizing the advantages of the Micro Four Thirds System design, compact size, low weight and amazing image quality, the two new lenses significantly expand the photographic potential of the system. The inner focusing mechanism uses a light, compact, single-element unit to enable exceptionally fast, quiet autofocusing for smooth, superior operating ease during still and video capture. The manual focusing mechanism is designed to offer a responsive feel and precise operation, enabling you an affordable, high-quality means to capture your life in stills or HD videos.

Both lenses offer quieter and more responsive AF performance, and provide professional image quality for capturing amazing still images and videos. They are compatible with all Micro Four Thirds System Olympus PEN cameras, and all other current and future cameras that comply with the Micro Four Thirds System standard. When mounted on an Olympus PEN camera, the lenses are stabilized thanks to the camera’s in-body Image Stabilization system and offer effective shake compensation at all focal lengths.

AVAILABILITY
The M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 9–18mm F4.0–5.6 will be available in early May, and the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14–150mm F4.0–5.6 will be available in early June 2010.

U.S. Pricing / Product Configurations
M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 9–18mm F4.0–5.6 Estimated Street Price: $699.99
M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14–150mm F4.0–5.6 Estimated Street Price: $599.99
