(FT5) No new Panasonic GF camera at Photokina

Bad news folks! There will be no new GF camera from Panasonic at Photokina. Three sources contacted me and said the new Panasonic GF2 will be announced in February 2011 only. All three told me the Panasonic GF2 is expected to be a very compact model like the Sony NEX-5 but with much better ergonomy and usability.

To compete against the Sony NEX and the future Samsung NX100 cameras Panasonic will lower the price of the current Panasonic GF1 kits.

More Panasonic rumors will follow during the next days. We expect Panaosnic to announce the new products on September 21. Olympus will announce the E-5 on September 14.

a little bit of everything…(+ new Olympus 14-35mm review -> sensational image quality!)

(FT4) UPDATED: More E-5 specs….

UPDATE: Zone-10 can’t believe this specs are true. They made a list with all rumored special features of the new E-5. But that’s only speculation. The specs below are probably correct :(

New rumors about the E-5 do confirm the specs we posted few days ago:

  • Magnesium weather proof  body
  • Dual memory card slots (not sure if CF+SD or 2xSD)
  • 12MP sensor
  • 11 AF points
  • 6fps
  • Image stabilization
  • Anti-dust feature
  • Some kind of a rotating/tilting LCD display
  • HD video @ 720P with 30fps
  • Built-in wireless flash
  • 100% viewfinder coverage
