Panasonic is going to launch the successor of the CM1 tomorrow (in Japan only). There is yet no info about the specs of the new CM10 smartphone-camera. The next Panasonic MFT related announcement will happen in February at or shortly before the CP+ show. The GF8 is expected to be announced and we will probably also see some new lens prototype too.

Is Olympus going Full Frame? New 28mm f/2.0 FF lens patent!

Oly_FF

What you see here above is the patented optical design of a new Olympus Zuiko 28mm f/2.0 lens for….Full Frame mirrorless! This means Olympus is considering to keep the doors open for a possible new FF system.

It would make sense to me to offer a sort of “Macro Four Thirds system”. A step up option for MFT owners who need a larger sensor size. Would you like that?

If you visit the gopc.olympus-imaging.com site you can spot two animated GIF teasers for the new PEN-F. It suggests there will be a silver PEN-F too because the yesterday PEN-F leaked imaged has a Black dial. The teaser shows the silver version.
