(FT5) Panasonic LX100 has 16MP multiaspect sensor! And is smaller than the G1XII!

I have now many more info about the LX100. It has a 16MP Four Thirds multi aspect sensor. Which means resolution should be a bit lower than 16MP. The size of the camera is really more compact than the Canon G1xII which uses a similar large sensor (see image on top).

- Sensor: 16MP Multi aspect Four Thirds(!). Real resolution is a bit lower.
- 24-75mm f/1.7-2.8 lens
- Built-in EVF: 2,76 milion dots, 1.39x / 0.7x magnification
- ISO 200-25600. Can be extended down to 100!
- 4K recording (with time limitation to avoid heating issue)
- exact camera size: 4.52″ x 2.6″ x 2.4″
- hot shoe

Announcement on Monday September 15 at 13:00 in Berlin time!

Would you consider buying a Panasonic LX100?

(FT5) Panasonic LX100 has a stunning 24-75mm f/1.7-2.8 lens!

I hope the new LX100 looks like the gorgeus Panasonic LC1 you see here on top :)

Good news folks! The Panasonic LX100 fixed lens and Four Thirds sensor camera will come with an exciting zoom lens: 24-75mm f/1.7-2.8!!! The camera can record 4K, has built-in EVF and will be announced next week on September 15!

I have no info about the price yet and no info about the sensor but I suspect it will use the same 16 MP GH4 sensor. I have been told the camera is surprisingly compact too! Here is the short question:

Note: One source told me initial aperture is f/1.8 and another f/1.7. But I “believe” the second source is right ;)

New Image of the 40-150mm f/2.8 production version lens!

UPDATE: I have been requested to remove the image from Martin Wagner who posted the Olympus 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO lens and 1.4x teleconverter pictures apparently without Olympus approval. Curious though that Olympus Australia itself posted an image of the lens yet. Sounds like there is a communication problem within Olympus :)

Thanks Andreas for sharing!

(FT5) E-M1 2.0 firmware will improve EVF response down to 16ms (from previous 29ms)

Another trusted source shared more tidbits about the E-M1 2.0 firmware upgrade:

1. Olympus Capture: software tethering, you can do almost anything from your PC.
2. 2 new art filters : vintage and partial color
3. Faster EVF response 16ms (improved from 29ms)
4. Total 16 improvements.
5. Keystone feature: The good news, It works in liveview and you can use the 2 control dials to manipulate vertical and horizontal axis separately. Bad news, it doesn’t work in retouch mode and you can manipulate only 1 axis on a single image.
