There could be soon a compact camera announcement made by Panasonic. At least one new FZ camera will be launched. As long as I know no new MFT camera is coming The GX7 will be announced in late August (confirmed by Panasonic US!). And the Olympus cameras will arrive in mid September.
In the long term both Panasonci and Olympus will step out from the low end compact camera business and focus on the high end market. The new Panasonic LF1 is a nice camera but Panasonic still has to launch a bigger size sensor camera to be really competitve against Fuji and Sony. Also Olympus plans to launch a high end compact camera soon!
P.S.: Super E-Pm2 Gold Box deal at Amazon Germany (Click here).
