We just learned that the new Panasonic GH2 will be available starting by late October.  We also know the EVF and LCD will both have a higher resolution than the current Panasonic GH1 but we are not sure about the exact specs. Feel free to contact me at 43rumors@gmail.com if you want to tell me more about it! Thanks!

We just received that image with the new Panasonic 100-300mm and 3D lens specifications. The only thing we miss here is the price. But let’s hope the lens is cheaper than the new Olympus 75-300mm f/4.8-6.7 ($899!!!). .

UPDATE: Kenmorecamera says the lens costs $599!

Interesting the Panasonic 3D lens has a fixed f/12 aperture!

Keep following us! Panasonic will announce the GH2, the 14mm, the 100-300mm and the 3D lens on Tuesday 21!

MirrrorlressRumors from others: Nikon Q, Leica EVIL, Samsung Lens roadmap….


There are many new rumors from the competititon and I made you a quick recap!

1) Is the Nikon Mirrorless “Q” camera ready to be unveiled? (Nikonrumors). 43rumors thoughts: I believe they will show some mirrorless camera prototypes.

2) Does Leica have „one more thing“ for photokina? (Mirrorlessrumors). 43rumors thoughts: I don’t believe Leica will bring an EVIL camera.

3) Mirrorless will outsell DSLRs by 2012/2013 says Samsung (Mirrorlessrumors). 43rumors thoughts: They are just shouting :)

4) New Samsung lens roadmap (Mirrorlessrumors). 43rumors thoughts: Nice lenses!

5) Mr. Hamada from Hoya-Pentax says about mirrorless: “we would like to release products with an individuality that shines through” (via Mirrorlessrumors). 43rumors thoughts: Let’s wait Photokina!

(FT5) First Panasonic GH2 picture

Finally we have the first image of the Panasonic GH2! The deisgn is closer to the current Panasonic G2 than the older Panasonic GH1.

The GH2 has following specs:
– 18 Megapixels multiscale sensor (16 effective Megapixels)
– 100-12.800 ISO (But I dont know how it takes the 12.800 ISO pictures)
– 1080i60 24Mbit/s AVCHD video recording
– The GH2 has one LSI with three cores (instead of current two cores of the GH1)
– Improved AF speed (0.099 second with the 14-140mm kit-lens)
– High-speed burst shooting of 5 fps with 16 MP
– Super high-speed burst shooting of 40 fps (lower resolution)
– Touch screen LCD
– announced 21 September at photokina
(FT3)Two new sources just told us the camera has real 1080p60 output “masked” as 1080i60. This because AVCHD specification does not include 1080p60. You have to set it to 60p (manually) in Final Cut (or other editing software). This rumor has to be confirmed by our sources so take it with a grain of salt!

Follow 43rumors until the September 21 announcement! We will update this website with all last minute rumors, leaks and camera reviews! Be sure to not miss any news. Join on Facebook and Twitter. Subscribe our RSS feed. Thanks!

Reminder -> Rumors classification explained (FT= FourThirds):

If specs are correct (1080p60 included) and real image quality ok will you buy the GH2?
