The mini OMD looking fixed zoom lens camera will be announced on October 29. I am yet not 100% sure about the sensor size but it should be 1/1.7 inch like the one used by the current Olympus XZ series. I call it mini OMD because it will look like a small OMD (and yes it has a built-in EVF in the middle). Reminder: The Panasonic Gm1 and 12-32mm announcement will happen next week on October 17 at 5-6am London time.
message to sources: The last two weeks I got many rumors about the next MFT lenses, fixed lens large sensor camera and Panasonic cameras in 2014. Thanks you all for the messages. Only want to ask you to be patient. I am trying to triple check the info I get to avoid to post false or partially incorrect rumors. Just to say that I got your rumors 🙂
