(FT5) Panasonic GH2 + lens announcement on September 21!

The new Sony A33 has almost the same size as current Panasonic G2 and GH1 cameras.

Finally we received very good info from our reliable sources. Panasonic will announce the new Panasonic GH2 and new lenses on September 21 (probably at 6am London time). We previousely told you that there was a planned Panasonic press release on Augst 26. According to our good sources Panasonic postponed the announcement for the GH2!
We are now investigating the reason for the delay. We know that Panasonic new sensor development has taken more time than expected and that could be the main reason for the delay. Another reason could be the announcement of the Nikon D3100 and Sony A55 and A33 cameras. Maybe Panasonic wants to make some last minute changes…

We will tell you more about the GH2 as soon as we have bulletproof infos!

P.S.: Nikon had their press release today, Canon and Sony will have it next week. Olympus and Panasonic only by mid Spetember. Does that mean something?

Panasonic GF1+20mm lens out of Stock at Amazon and BHphoto.

I don’t recall the latest time when Amazon (click here) and BHphoto had the GF1+20mm lens “out of Stock”!

I see more and more GF3 ghosts here… :)

(FT3) The E-P3 is coming?

Above: A rendering of a possible E-P3 with built-in EVF (Not the real camera!)

According to rumors we received and according to the german magazine (a well known and reputable magazine) Olympus will soon announce the E-P3. The camera will be placed above the Olympus E-P2 (better specs). It is very likely that it will use the new Panasonic 14 Megapixel sensor. There is a rumor about a built-in EVF that we can’t confirm yet.
It also seems that the E-P3 is NOT the MFT high-end model. That model will come in 2011. The E-P3 for example is not weather sealed :(

I ask our german readers if they can send me a scan of the Photographie magazine where they talk about that camera. Thanks!

P.S: Something personal…may you will not believe me but I am working on rumors from here:

It’s a nice place in the middle of nowhere (Tuscany). Internet connection (via UMTS) doesn’t work very well but I really needed to be in a place like this! I enjoy the silence and the sun, and I hope to be able to catch some nice rumor from here :)
