(FT3) Two new MicroFourThirds zoom lenses to be announced along the new Panasonic AG-AF100?

One of our readers that works for a big online-store told us that he has been trained to use the new Panasonic AG-AF100. He don’t know when exactly the new camera will be launched (but he is sure it will be soon). He also saw at least two new Panasonic MicroFourThirds zooms that are optimized for video (silent autofocus and smooth manual zoom and focusing). Those new lenses would also be perfect for the older Panasonic GH1 and the new Panasonic GH2 ;)

Reminder: The Panasonic 14-140mm lens is the only Panasonic lens optimized for video. Olympus has two MSC (Movie and Still Compatible) lenses the Olympus 9-18mm and the Olympus 14-150mm lenses but those are without IS and Panasonic camera don’t have in-body stabilization.

(FT2) New mirrorless camera spotted into the wild. A Samsung camera or is it a Panasonic?

An SLRclub forum user spotted that camera. He believes that this is the new Samsung NX100 but he doesn’t exclude that this could be also a different camera from a different brand.
There is not much we can see from that picture :(

UPDATE: I also thought this could be the white Panasonic GF1 but that image doesn’t exatcly match the GF1. For example you miss teh

Panasonic GF2 ghosts :)

I guess I am starting to see ghosts :)
I am almost certain that we will see a new Panasonic “GF” camera at photokina. That’s why I am scanning forums all over the world to find some hints. I also made a “stupid” search inside amazon.com for “Panasonic GF2“. Probably this is just some kind of amazon mistake but I found three results with blank entries. I have taken a screenshot but if you perform the search again you will not see that results anymore!

Anyway, try to look for some leaks because I am now sure that there is people (photographers and journalists) holding and testing the camera righ now!
