The GH2 will be sold with the 14-140mm lens or if you preferr you can buy it with the much cheaper 14-42mm kit lens! I don’t know yet if you can have it body only.

Reminder: The GH2 should be announced in few hours (tomorrow morning between 7-9am London time)

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!
