(FT4) Next Panasonic cameras or lenses early 2010

This rumor has been confrimed from many of our sources. Panasonic is not going to release any new MicroFourThirds product in 2009. (They already have done a good job this year!). Maybe a new camera and 1-2 new lenses are expected to be unveiled early 2010 (in February?).

And one more thing, other two sources confirmed us that in 2010 Panasonic will announce more MicroFourThirds lenses than Panasonic showed us on the roadmap!!!

Not only the 100-300mm f/4-5.6 OIS, 8mm f/3.5 fisheye and 14mm f2.8. Some Leica branded Panasonic lenses are expected to be announced during next year!

Panasonic GF1: first user experiences

Many people is talking about the new Panasonic GF1 and we thought we should summarize you the most interesting forum threads:

1) Japanese are getting the Panasonic GF1 as first and here we have some first GF1 images: and here:

2) Here you have a picture of the GF1 with Leica lenses: Generally you can find many pictures here:

3) First US people is receiving their GF1 directly from Panasonic. Amazon is also starting their shipments. The waiting list is long so many have to wait days or weeks to get the GF1.

4) We havn’t got any info from Europe. I still havn’t heard of any european who got the GF1. Strange that Amazon Germany has not even listed the GF1!
Amazon UK says the GF1 will “usually dispatched within 2 to 5 weeks“. It also says that the Panasonic DMW-LVF1E External Live Viewfinder for Lumix GF1 is due to be released on September 30, 2009. So in UK you can get the Viewfinder before the camera :)

amazon France gives no shipment information (“À paraître – Commandez-le dès aujourd’hui!“)
