Rumors rumors and more rumors coming…


As you have noticed I posted quite a lot of rumors. I will post many more rumors soon but as usual I always try to confirm a news using different sources before posting them (to avoid mistakes). But I can tell you that almost every rumor I do receive in this days are “good” news. Cameras, Lenses…a lot of stuff is coming and if those rumors will become true Panasonic and Olympus will proove that they listen to you!

P.S.: I just came back from the hospital because I broke my ligaments and I have 3 weeks off from work. So I will have even more time to work on 43rumors. By the way I am currently feeling (and looking) like James Stewart in “Rear Window

For those of you that want to send me rumors:
1) You can use the contact form on the right sidebar. It doesn’t store your name or email (you can simply avoid to send me them) or IP-Adress. Please use some acronym so that I can “classify” the reliability of your informations.
2) You can also create a fake gmail account to send me infos. That will help me to write you back and to ask me for your name (joke!)

For readers:
1) Feel free to share the infos we publish here. But please link back to us. Thanks!

(FT4) Panasonic will make a new 25mm MicroFourThirds lens…f/1.4 or faster!!!

The following rumor comes from two very good sources! They told us that Panasonic will launch new prime lenses in Q4 of this year (after Photokina) and Q1 of 2011. One of those lenses will certainly be the MicroFourThirds version of the current

Panasonic/Leica 25mm f/1.4 FourThirds Lens (click here to see that lens on eBay)!

But there will be a difference…one of our source told us that Panasonic will make that lens even faster! Not by much but Panasonic has understood that fast primes are what people is looking for. I expect Panasonic to release a new lens roadmap at Photokina (September). But we hope to give you more details about the 25mm and other prme lenses before September! :)
Months ago we asked what prime lenses are the most needed by our readers. That was the result:
– 25mm (982 votes)
– 12mm (823 votes)
– 17mm (475 votes)
– 14mm (373 votes)

The Panasonic 25mm f/1.4 Four Thirds Lens is not exactly cheap ($1,099.95 on amazon.com).

DEAL Reminder: The Panasonic LUMIX G 20mm f/1.7 Lens is in Stock on amazon.com for $360.39!
