Panasonic basic plans for 2010…a little to basic :)


At a convention in Munich Panasonic “unveiled” their 2010 plan for the G-System. Photographyblog knows the three key points of the “plan”:
– Expand Lineup
– Pursue Easy Operation
– Expand Lens Lineup

That’s kind of a plan! :)

(FT4) The competition is striking back: Samsung and Sony ready to launch new mirrorless cameras!

Just a small update about the MicroFourThirds competition. It seems that Sony is going to announce two or more mirrorless cameras on PMA (click here to read the specs on SonyAlphaRumors). Samsung is also going to announce a cheaper NX camera (source:

What’s common with the the two rumors is that it seems that both companies will present very compact cameras (like the Pen-series or Panasonic GF1).

Interesting: Canon and Nikon should not unveil any mirrorless camera soon…

One more email from Noktor

I just received this mail from Noktor: “Senko, Navitar, Yakumo, etc all re-brand their lenses from a single japanese optical company. They do not make the lenses. The Noktor lens is slightly different in mechanical design, and has a different internal anti-reflective coating as well.

The Notkor 50mm f/0.95 lens for MicroFourThirds is very similar to the three lenses pictured above. I looked around the web and that’s the info I found about the three lenses. Feel free to add your links by commenting this post.

Noktor price speculation and poll.

Many of you do believe the Noktor lens could be a modification/copy of the Senko lens. The actual price for a Senko lens is $730 (check it out here).

Now if the price of the new Noktor lens will be under $1000 (Euro 750) and the quality decent at 0.95 and good at f/1.2-f/1.4….

What kind of improvements or new features do you want to see for the E-P3? (select a maximum of three options)
