(FT5) No entry level GH camera coming any time soon.

A highly trusted source confirmed that there will be no “entry-level” GH camera from Panasonic. The simple strategy from Panasonic is to lower the price of the camera that gets replaced. Like it happened with the GH3 after the GH4 release.

The source said the GH4 sales exceeded the expectations and Panasonic is also preparing a “surprise” for current GH4 owners…

GH4 camera at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto, Ritz Camera and Panasonic. Price: $1,698. In Canada at Vistek.

Debunking rumors from others: There is no Full Frame OMD coming at Photokina.

Since yesterday you can see links posted on forums (and even on my comment system) to rumor/news sites that claims to know that Olympus will launch a Full Frame OMD.

Well, of course you can never be 100% sure on any rumor (not even on 43rumors). But as far as I heard this is completely fake!!! I know I am not spectacular when I say this but as far as I heard Olympus will “only” announce an E-PL7 and probably a Silver E-M1 is going to be announced at photokina (among some great PRO lenses).

That said of course I would love to get a Full Frame version of the OMD. That’s why for once I posted a FT1 rumor months ago to keep dreaming a bit… :)
