Panasonic G2 and Panasonic G10…launch next week?


You all didn’t forget that the Panasonic “Focus on Imaging show” will be held at the NEC Birmingham from 7th-10th March …or not?

The official Panasonic UK website shows clearly the following text:

Now, we didn’t receive any reliable rumor about the exact launch date. If Panasonic wants to show the new MicroFourThirds cameras at that event they could probably announce the cameras in few days.

But few things are a little strange:

1) We didn’t recieve any rumor about the exact launch date
2) Panasonic UK changed the teaser (the new teaser doesn’t show the camera silhouttes) -> Click here to see the difference
3) Few weeks ago Panasonic made a countdown for the launch of a new website and they don’t do anything for the launch of their new products?

If this doesn’t happen than we should expect an annoucement next week at the C+ show in Japan (it starts on March 11).

Anyway we are definitely SURE two MFT models will be announced! The G2 and the G10. We also recieved some specs from new sources but we first want to check them with our rleiable sources. So expect more rumors soon.

Cheers!

Reminder: Tomorrow launch of the new Noktor 50mm f/0.95 for MicroFourThirds!

The HyperPrime 50mm f/0.95

On March 1 Noktor will launch the fastest Lens for Micro 4/3rds.

Do not confuse this lens with the Leica Noctilux or Voigtländer Nokton.

Keep following us. We will update you with every info we will receive about the lens!

This is what we know for now about the lens:
With a maximum aperture of F/0.95, the Noktor Hyperprime is the fastest lens designed for Micro Four Thirds cameras. At open aperture, the lens renders pictures and video with extreme shallow depth of field for a unique aesthetic.

In low-light photography and cinematography, the lens exceeds the perception of the human eye. From nightscapes to campfires, now you can shoot in situations that are often impossible to capture with a normal lens.

(FT4) Olympus E-5 release postponed again?

The Olympus E-3

Really, I hate it to give you such news! According to the same sources that told me the new Olympus E-5 was almost ready for launch the Olympus E-3 successor release has been postponed. Apparentely there are working models of the E-5 but for some reasons they will still not launch it.
Everybody is telling me that it is a revolutionary model (not just an upgraded E-3) but we have no clue (if our informations are correct) why Olympus is waiting to announce it.

I have to remember you that we are a rumors site. So don’t blame on Olympus, we are talking about unofficial and unproven rumors ok?
