(FT5) Rumor correction and confirmation: Next Panasonic announcement in late August and not in mid July!

Two trusted sources told me that the new high-end compacts will be announced one month later than previously rumored. Not on July 16 but sometimes in late August! But they also confirmed the large sensor fixed lens camera is coming for sure!

And one more thing: Some hot rumors are about to come soon ;)

(FT4) Mitakon considering to make a 50mm f/0.95 Speedmaster lens.

After launching the Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 for E-mount (here on eBay) Mitakon is seriously considering to make proper Micro Four Thirds version of it.

Don’t know how much sense it makes to launch such a lens. We already have superb (and also cheap) 50mm f/0.95 lenses…

For the record. These are the five f/o.95 MFT lenses we have now:
Nokton 25mm f/0.95 (here one Bay).
Nokton 17.5mm f/0.95 (here one Bay).
Nokton 42.5mm f/0.95 (not in Stock yet, save this search for notification).
SLRmagic 50mm f/0.95 (here one Bay).
SLRmagic 25mm f/0.95 (not in Stock yet, save this search for notification).

(FT3) Sigma will launch new ART lenses with MFT mount at Photokina.

You probably have heard about the latest Sigma 50mm f/1.4 ART lens (Click here) whose quality is almost as good as the $4,000 Zeiss Otus. This is just to say how Sigma is being “serious” with their new “ART” lens line.
It’s said “some” of them will have fast aperture. Well, according to one source Sigma will display new ART lenses with Micro Four Thirds mount at Photokina! And unlike the current MFT lenses, the 19mm (here at Amazon), 30mm (here at Amazon) and 60mm (here at Amazon) the sources said “some” of these lenses will have a fast aperture. The only not so good news is that also these new lenses will share the same lens design for all mirrorless mounts. A “dedicated” MFT lens design would have allowed Sigma to make them more compact because of the slightly smaller sensor size.

Now you can dream of some nice fast lens. What’s your wish?

(FT2) some more LX8 info…

Another (yet not trusted source) told me this about the LX8. So take it as FT2 only:

- Weather sealed (but unclear if they will market this due to warranty concerns)
- EVF resolution is 1.44 Million dot
- 5 axis Stabilization for stills and video

Let’s hope the source is right…Thanks!
