(FT5) Panasonic LF1 has 1/1.7 inch sensor (like the LX7)


What a surprise!

We were all expecting the camera to use a FT or APS-C sensor but the upcoming Panasonic high end compact camera with fixed lens and built-in viewfinder uses the same sensor size of the current Panasonic LX7! Apparently Panasonic preferred to focus on real pocketable size and high quality lens performance.

I ask sources if they could send me the lens specs of the new LF1 at 43rumors@gmail.com or anonymously via the contact form present on the right border of the website. Thanks!

Reminder: The G6 and LF1 will be annoucned in late April while the new E-P5 (and E-PL6?) will be announced in early May!
