(FT4) New LX8 has a 24-90mm f/2.0-2.8 lens!

The soon to be announced LX8 will have a built-in evf like the current LF1 you see on the picture above.

The Panasonic LX8 will be an exciting new premium camera. It will likely have a 1 inch sensor, built-in EVF, LX7 look and 4K video!

And yesterday a source (Many Thanks!) told me the lens will be 24-90mm f/2.0-2.8! The current only competitor is the Sony RX100m3 which has a 24-70mm f/1.8-2.8 lens. Therefore the Panasonic will have a more useful tele lens and sacrifices only a third of stop at the wide end. But the huge news is that unlike the Sony it shoots 4K.

I also got some more info about the LX8 I am double checking with other sources. Stay tuned! Camera should be announced on July 16!
