A nice LF1 mockup made by Mike

Share


43rumors reader Mike Bacchin made that nice LF1 rendering. Of course, expect the LF1 to be much different but I liked it so much that I wanted to share it with you readers :)

Thanks Mike!

P.S.: The G6 and the LF1 fixed lens (and with built-in EVF) compact camera will be announced soon (in 2 weeks from now).

(FT4) Panasonic has no plan to replace the 20mm and 14mm yet.

Share

A trusted source read your comments about the recent 20mm deal at Amazon US ($335 right now). He was so keen to send me a message to say that neither the 20mm nor the 14mm lens (also discounted) will be updated this year. And in general there will be “no big news” this year.

And the brand new 42.5mm f/1.2 and 150mm f/2.8 are still scheduled for a market release in early 2014 only although the announcement could be made (and preorders start) in late 2013.

(FT3) More E-P5 and E-PL6 rumor bits…

Share

Another source just sent me in the following message:
1) The E-P5 has built-in WiFi
2) The E-Pl6 has a Premium design over the E-PL5. But it’s not physically different. It uses a few better materials and a very small amount of color on some parts of the body.

Thanks anonymous source for sending this!
P.S.: Still wondering why the E-Pl5 gets replaced by the E-PL6 with so minor differences…
