What’s hot:
The G6 gains considerably improved movie capabilities, including full exposure control, an external mic socket and the sensor from the GH2. It also adds the NFC-aided Wi-Fi for simple remote control and image download that we first saw in the GF6. it has the same GH2 sensor, albeit without that model’s multi-aspect feature.

14-140mm lens is smaller, lighter, less-expensive alternative to the original G Vario HD 14-140mm F4.0-5.8 ASPH Mega OIS. The latest version features three aspheric and two ED elements and an internal focus design with linear stepper motors to make the most of the faster focus processing of the latest Micro Four Thirds bodies (Source: Dpreview).
The LF1 marries the sensor from the LX7 to a longer, slower lens (but longer zoom range) and adds an electronic viewfinder (Source: Dpreview).

(FT5) LF1 with 28-200mm f/2,0-5,9 lens.


I just got some info about the new LF1 compact camera with fixed lens and 1:1,7 inch sensors:
1) The sensor has 12 megapixels.
2) The lens specs are 28-200mm f/2,0-5,9.

P.S.: I am still not sure if the G6 16 Megapixel sensor is from the GX1, GH2 or GH3. All I got is the Megapxiel number. It could be that Panasonic didn’t specify that part. Anyway, we know the video quality is the same of the GH2.

The announcement will be at 6-7am London time. Meantime help me to find leaks on Panasonic websites like the one on the new 14-140mm lens :)
