Our best sources sent us the following message (a few hours ago):
“Within the next 12 hours a new “exceptional” product will be announced. A product that 99% of you want but only 20% of you will buy!”
UPDATE: Those are the words from the sources. Let’s keep our feet on the ground, maybe not everyone will like it (hey I don’t know what it is).
It is something nobody expected and no rumors website has even talked about (so I have been told). I still don’t know what it is…but I am working on it.
“Nobody expected” to me means no GF2/GF3/GH2 and no E-5 or no new PEN.
UPDATE 6: Nor Olympus and Panasonic product. Fuji and Leica are not expected to join MFT with a camera body (Leica already said they are not interested in MFT). My speculation is:
– Sigma, Kodak or Pentax body (but that’s hardly going to happen)
– Zeiss, Leica, Sigma, Pentax or other third party lens
– or something else I hardly can imagine to be “exceptional”. No Adapter or third party viewfinder will ever make me go crazy :)
UPDATE 5: I contacted the first source of the rumor and he told me we should expect the new product to be announced tonight between 11pm (London time) and 2 am (London time). It is definitely a new MicroFourThirds product. He can’t or won’t give me any more details yet. In the meanwhile other sources confirmed that there is no planned Olympus or Panasonic announcement!
UPDATE 4: It’s a MicroFourThirds product!
UPDATE 3: Now 9 hours left. There is also no planned Panasonic announcement. So it could be an announcement from a third brand. I don’t believe Fuji or Sigma or Pentax will come with a MFT camera. And also leica said they will not join the MFT system.
UPDATE 2: Now 11 hours left. We asked some of our sources if there was a planned press release from Olympus or Panasonic. There is definitely no planned press release from Olympus….so you can stop voting for the Olympus fullframe camera ;)
UPDATE: Now 12 hours left. I guess it is a countdown :) We will continually update this post with all the rumors we receive. We are currently investigating if there are planned press releases…
