$200 off on GX7 and 20mm lens kit at Amazon.

Share

 

You can save $200 on the Panasonic GX7 with 20mm f/1.7 combo at Amazon (Click here and read the codes). You will pay $1224 instead of $1444. This is a much more interesting combination than the GX7 with 14-42mm lens.

Coming back to the GM1:
It still sells (order+preorder) well at Amazon (mirrorless ranking here). although the Sony A7 series and Fuji X-E2 stole the show last week. I think the GM1 is one of the best cameras released this year and that’s why I am getting one to replace my old E-P1 :)

(FT4) Panasonic 4K MFT camera coming in 2014!

Share

gh4

Let’s drop the bomb:

According to two highly trusted sources Panasonic will launch a new High End Micro Four Thirds camera that can record 4K video. The camera will be in Stores by 2014. The model is placed above the current Panasonic GH3. It will not(!) replace it and it will cost much more than the GH3!

I hope to get full specs confirmations soon. But Panasonic is definitely moving towards the professional market with their cameras and lenses. And they want to do it by focusing on one aspect. Top video and photo hybrid quality performance!

Did Leica change their mind about MFT? Panasonic will sell them interchangeable mount cameras!

Leica GM1 clone design by Seung-hun Han via Dicahub. Yep…just change the logo and charge $500 extra ;)

Over one year ago Leica stated that they will not make an MFT camera because their goal was to focus on ultimate image quality. But things have been changed at Leica and also their FF compact camera domain just got a strong competition from the SonyA7-A7r cameras. There is now a very surprising news:

According to Globalpost sources Panasonic and Leica made a new agreement where Panasonic will supply Leica with mirrorless and interchangeable mount cameras with retail prices of around 200,000 yen (1494 Euro or $2000). They will ship these cameras as early as next year!
