Little LX4(5) update

We do not have the exact release date but we got again a confirmation that a Panasonic camera (probably the LX4 or Lx5) will be unveiled before September. We havn’t got any specs…

UPDATE: I am still not confident in Panasonic’s roadmap (see the 20mm f/1.7 lens). That’s why I won’t give this rumor a ft4 or ft5 value…

Fake Nikon rumor ;)

The Olympus E-P1 had such a success that Nikon people started to dream some new Nikon mirrorless system. Here you see a FAKE image with FAKE specs:
* 24.8mp full frame sensor
* 1080p video at 24fps, 30fps or 60fps
* 100% optical viewfinder
* Nikkor 10-70mm f/1.2 lens

When will Nikon release cameras to compete with the MicroFourThirds system? I bet you will have to wait a lot for it! I see Samsung and Canon as the next REAL competition.

Waiting for more LX4(5) rumors…

sensor comparison

Sensor size comparison. Click on picture to enlarge (thanks to Mitsos!)

No Panasonic leaks until now…is that the calm before the storm?

There is a fair chance to see some Panasonic news next week.

In the meanwhile I received many false rumors. It is false that the LX4(5) will have a Fuji sensor and it is false that it will be a MicroFourThirds camera or that it will have a built-in viewfinder.

If you know something contact us at 43rumors@gmail.com . We are trying to get all rumor pieces together!

US lenses:

The Panasonic 45-200mm f/4.0-5.6 is a perfect and cheap choice for your MFT camera ($287.54).

If you look for extreme quality this are the lenses you should look for: The Olympus Zuiko 12-60mm f/2.8-4.0 Digital ED SWD Lens (Perfect walk-around lens). The Panasonic 7-14mm f/4.0 Micro Four Thirds Lens (My preferred lens) and the Panasonic 25mm f/1.4 Four Thirds Lens (very sharp and well-built lens for portraits and low-light photography).
