Discounted G5 sells better than Nikon-Canon DSLR at Amazon US!

FacebookShare

You really don’t see that very often, a MFT camera beating Canon and Nikon DSLR sales on the usually “conservative” and not so “Mirrorless friendly” US market. The $499 G5 kit sells so well that it even beats all Canon-Nikon DSLR topsellers (Click here to see the overall camera ranking)!

More US deals:
Today is the last day you can grab the E-Pm2 with a $50 discount at Amazon US (Click here).

(FT4) Panasonic to announce a new 14-140mm too.

Image on top: The current 14-140mm lens.

Panasonic will announce the new LF1 and G6 by end of next week (on Friday?). And according to Digicaminfo there may be a new version of the 14-140mm lens too. Also an anonymous source sent me that info two weeks ago. SO I guess this rumor has good chance to be correct. The same source told me that Panasonic also plans to “update” the 14-42mm PZ lens too!

Rumors classification explained (FT= FourThirds):
FT1=1-20% chance the rumor is correct
FT2=21-40% chance the rumor is correct
FT3=41-60% chance the rumor is correct
FT4=61-80% chance the rumor is correct
FT5=81-99% chance the rumor is correct

(FT5) LF1 has 7x zoom and samse LX7 size.

FacebookShare

Reminder: End of next week Panasonic will announce the new LF1 and the G6 camera. I am not sure about the exact day yet…

Another trusted source shared some info about the LF1:
1) The LF1 has the same size as the LX7. And it looks more like the Canon S90.
2) The EVF is tiny and not of a very high quality

A second source confirmed that the LF1 has also the same sensor size of the LX7 and a 7x zoom lens.

The G6 has a 16 megapixel sensor, same Gh2 video quality and the size is close to the current G5.
