(FT4) Four new Olympus and Panasonic FourThirds and MicroFourThirds cameras until May-June! And Four MFT lenses! And more to come!


The Panasonic MicroFourThirds lens roadmap

In these days we are receiving an increasing ammount of new rumors. If only half of them will come true, I would be extremely happy! You can definitely expect some exciting news soon.

There is a 90% chance that between February and May-June we will see:
– at least two new Olympus FourThirds cameras
– at least two new MicroFourThirds cameras cameras, one from Olympus and one from Panasonic
– at least four MicroFourThirds lenses (two from Olympus and two from Panasonic)

With “at least” I want to say that there could be more of this!

There is a 60% chance to see:
– new FourThirds Olympus Zuiko Lenses
– a new Panasonic LX3 successor
– more compact cameras (no MicroFourThirds!)

Keep following us!

(FT3) Panasonic 3D photocamera on Photokina.

According to one of our sources Panasonic will launch a new 3D photocamera at Photokina in September 2010. It has to be seen if Panasonic will only show a prototype or a market-ready final product.

What’s sure is that Panasonic already has a 3D videocamera which will be on market on Q3.

(FT4) Olympus, the calm before the storm?

43rumors can confirm that Olympus will soon announce a new FourThirds camera. The new camera will replace the E-520. Some of our sources told us it will also replace the E-620.

We have no specs or release date but we hope to know more soon.

P.S: One of our sources told us that the camera will record video :)

Both cameras are in Stock at amazon: Olympus E520 and the E-620.

(FT4) UPDATED -> Olympus and Panasonic small rumors update.

Other big companies like Canon (January 9) and Sony (Today live via ustream) already have their programmed press release. I still don’t know when Panasonic and Olympus will make their press realease. If you know something let me know!

The Panasonic compact cameras have been leaked yesterday and I do not expect other surprises from Panasonic. Olympus will also announce compact cameras. Is that all what we should expect for now? I know that Olympus plans to update some of their FourThirds cameras. Will they surprise us and present a new FourThirds camera this week? We hope to know more soon…

UPDATE: Do not expect the E-3 successor.
