(FT3) Two more Olympus MicroFourThirds cameras and first prime lenses during second half of the year
According to our sources Olympus is already working on two new MicroFourThirds cameras. The first camera to be released should be a PEN and the second camera should be the long awaited very high-end MicroFourThirds model. Both will be announced within the year. The High-End model will arrive later (and Photokina fits perfectly for such a camera announcement).
According to our sources also new prime lenses should come by late 2010. Probably the 50mm (f/2.0 ?) lens will be the first of the series.
One more thing about Panasonic. We are certain Panasonic will launch the GH2 on Photokina but we have no information about the GF2. One new source told us that Panasonic is planning to release the GF2 months after Photokina. But this is a unreliable rumor. I hope one of my trusted sources can tell me more
Yesterday I asked you to give your opinion on the need to cover the rumors from more brands with mirrorless camera systems.
As you understood from my comments it doesn’t make a lot of sense to me to “expand” 43rumors coverage on other brands. I started 43rumors I wanted to have a place for FourThirds-MicroFourThirds only.
But I have been surprised to see how many people need a place for general mirrorless rumors and news. So my idea is to create a new mirrorlessrumors.com website and comunity! The website should not only contain the unique rumors from our sources but also become a dynamic network with people sharing reviews, comparisons and tests.
What do you think?
