POLL: radical 43rumors change


Dear readers,

since 1 year we are writing rumors. We are now creating a complete redesign of our website and we want to ask you a very important question.

We are getting rumors from Panasonic and Olympus but also from other brands. So our question to you is: should we make a radical improvement. Should we become a website that talks about rumors of all mirrorless camera systems? We won’t cover classic DSLR rumors (there are already very good rumors websites). Our idea is to specialize in mirrorless camera system rumors and news.

Will you buy the new GF2?
