Rumors from others: Nikon, Canon, Sony and Samsung…

A quick recap of rumors about mirrorless cameras from competitors:

1) NIKON
According to Bloomberg Nikon Corp. plans to introduce a new type of single-lens reflex camera as early as this fiscal year, President Makoto Kimura said.
The “new concept” model will probably have an enhanced function for video recording and may adopt the so-called mirrorless structure, Kimura said in an interview today in Tokyo. “It could be any time this fiscal year or the following year, as new models are starting to sell,” he said, declining to specify when the product will be available.

2) CANON
According to PhotorumorsAt the beginning of next week Canon will make new product announcement(s) in the printer, camera and camcorder categories. I have no further details at that point.“. There was some speculation here and there about a mirrorless camera annoucnement. I don’t believe it will come yet but let’s see…

3) SONY
Kipon will release a huge ammount of different adapters for the NEX system: http://sonyalpharumors.com/kipon-to-release-a-huge-ammount-of-different-adapters-for-the-nex-system/

4) SAMSUNG

New Opteka 500mm f/8 with MicroFourThirds mount (?)


One of our readers just sent us the link to the following Opteka 500-1000mm Lens which is listed on Amazon US (click here). It sounds like the lens is made for Micro Four Thirds Cameras. I couldn’t found any info that reveals if the lens needs an adapter or not. Do you know it?

POLL: Can we consider the Leica M9 a “mirrorless” camera?


I am almost ready to launch a completely dedicated mirrorless website. My question to you is: Is the digital $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Leica M9 if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Leica M9 if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Leica M9 if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Leica M9 if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Leica M9 if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Leica M9 if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Leica M9 if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Leica M9 if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Leica M9 if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Leica M9 if ($loc == 'US')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Leica M9 if ($sel != '1')
{?>Leica M9 camera a mirrorless camera? I know the M series doesn’t have an Electronic Viewfinder and no LiveView. But it is also true that it doesn’t have a mirror. I would normally answer “No” simply because nobody ever labeled the M9 as a mirrorless camera. But I believe that sooner or later the Leica M system will have a camera with Live-view and Electronic Viewfinder. That’s why I don’t know if we should “adpot” the M9 and the M system in our new website…

What lens would you buy?

(FT4) UPDATED: New Panasonic with large sensor will be very similar to the Lumix DMC-L1 (or Leica Digilux)!

UPDATE: Sounds like the LX5 will have an a nice new design and simple controls similar to the $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Panasonic Lumix DMC-L1 if ($loc == 'ES')

{?>Panasonic Lumix DMC-L1.

An italian website (with very good reputation) said that there was a presentation for the press in Sweden (July 7). They also said the camera will look like the $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

{ $sel = "1"; ?>Leica Digilux 3 if ($loc == 'ES')

Contact me at 43rumors@gmail.com if you want share your “rumors”. We really want to know when Panasonic is going to announce the camera :)

UPDATE: We were told that there is a large sensor compact camera (announcement in July) AND a LX3 small sensor successor (announcement in September). We don’t know yet if the first camera will be called LX5 and the second something else or viceversa. Sorry for the confusion! Some of our sources can help us to clear that open question? Thanks!
