(FT4) More current Panasonic zooms will be updated within 2013.

I am really very excited about the upcoming Panasonic GX7 announcement. In two months we will be able to see the real camera (or maybe before if I manage to get some pics from sources). But will there be some new lenses too? The two 42,5mm f/1.2 and the 150mm f/2.8 lenses will hit the stores in early 2014 only. But there price and first preorders may be announced along the GX7.

Today a trusted source told me that also a couple of current zooms will be updated like it just happened with the 14-140mm lens. No other “completely new” lens will be announced this year. By the way, US readers should grab the 45-20mm lens deal for $174 at Amazon US. This lens is likely going to be replaced but at that price level it’s still on top of any buying list!

Reminder: A while ago Panasonic stated at DSLRmagazine (translation here) that they “want to expand the “affordable” lens range.
