(FT5) Panasonic G3 with a complete new design (new sensor and FullHD)

We just learned that Panasonic is going to introduce a completely new designed G3 camera. The new body looks different than the current G1/G2 cameras. But it will not have a “rangefinder look” like the famous DMC-LC1. One of our sources told us that the new body form is very close to the Samsung NX10. We received rumors saying that Panasonic wasn’t happy with the Panasonic G10 and Panasonic G2 sales. That’s why they anticipated the release of a new G camera having new specs and new design. As you know the G10 has been discontinued and the G2 price is decreasing.

The new sensor is the same that will be used by future Olympus cameras. We have no reliable info yet but we received rumors about a new 14-15 megapixel sensor from unknown sources. What’s certain is that the G3 can take FullHD videos (but not at 24mbit/s like the new GH2).

Stay tuned on 43rumors! I hope to receive some detailled spec as soon as possible. Thanks!

An interesting note to the Tokina rumor (Hoya-Pentax involvement?)

Image on top: The Hoya-Pentax 17mm f/2.0 Micro Four Thirds lens patent

Two days ago I posted a rumor about Tokina making two new Micro Four Thirds lenses which should be unveiled at the PMA show in November. The two lenses are the 17mm f/2.0 (or faster) and the 8-16mm/3.5-4.5 (or faster and with the body quality of the current Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 lens). Now we just noticed a very interesting “coincidence”. In recent years, Tokina has become a partner of Pentax, division of Hoya Corporation and jointly developed some lenses. And thanks to a discussion we had with one of our readers it came in our mind that a few months ago Pentax-Hoya fulfilled a patent for a 17mm f/2.0 Micro Four Thirds lens (Source: Egami). So if 1+1 makes 2 can we conclude that Pentax and Hoya are interested in joining the Micro Four Thirds world as lens maker (under the Tokina brand)? It looks like the answer is yes. But the one million dollar question is: Will this partnership go further and will Pentax join the MFT coalition? Probably not….or no? :)

GH2, GF2, G2 and AG-AF100 reviews


The Whistle Bait. Panasonic AF100 PL Mount, GH2, 5D, 7D. From Chris Marino on Vimeo.

We found plenty of new Panasonic Micro Four Thirds camera reviews. Here is the list:

Ganref made a very cool and detailed GH2 vs GH1 vs G2 ISO and resolution comparison. The GH2 shows clearly more resolution but ISO noise is almost equal to the other cameras.

SteveHuff posted a “GH2 Guest review” written by Amy Medina.

M43photo shows how magnified focus with legacy lenses works on the GH2

There are two non-english GF2 tests. One at DCview and one at Focus Numerique.

And for the category “better late than never”: Panasonic G2 review at Quesabesde (Click here to read the google english translation).
