Here is the Panasonic Sept. 5-6 invitation for a “new 4K product”.

Henrys reports that Panasonic will show “a brand new Panasonic 4K product” on a special event in Toronto on September 5th and 6th. Finally we know when we will finally see the new 4K Panasonic GM2 :)

Thanks Steve for spotting this!

(FT4) New GM2 will actually replace the GX7? GM2 has on sensor stabilization.

Weeks ago the Australian store Discountcameras marked the GX7 as “officially discontinued”

According to one source the soon to be announced Panasonic GM2 will actually replace the GX7. And just like the GX7 the GM2 will have a built-in EVF and on sensor stabilization! The GM2 will also likely have 4K recording too (yet not 100% confirmed).

So basically we will only have GH and Gm lines for now. Have no info yet if the GX, G and GF line will be ever updated…

Reminder: $300 off on the Panasonic GX7 at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here).

(FT3) Panasonic LX8 to be announced within a few days.

The soon to be announced LX8 will have a built-in evf like the current LF1 you see on the picture above.

An anonymous source just told me that the Panasonic LX8 will be announced within a few days. Now here is the thing I know for now:

(FT5) There will be a fixed lens Four Thirds sensor camera from Panasonic.

But what I don’t know for sure is if this will be the LX8 or if the LX8 will be a second camera with (1inch?) sensor.

I hope the sources reading this can give me an answer about that soon. Thanks!

Previously rumored LX8 specs (not yet confirmed by trusted sources!):

- Lens will be a 24 – 90 f2 – f2.8
- Will be 3% larger than the LX7
- Will have a swivel touch screen with touch to focus and capture features
- Updated processing engine enhancing JPEG output
- EVF built in, no hotshoe
- Automatic Lenscap
- built-in 3 stop ND filter

Last week I got the pricing info of the new Olympus 40-15mm f/2.8 PRO lens info for Australia ($1,499 AUSD). Now a US source told me the lens is expected to ship in Q1 2015. price will be in between $1,200 and $1,400 in US.

I hope to get some more info about the other lenses too. Like the 7-14mm, 9mm f/1.8 (if true) and the superfast lens prime.
