(FT4) Panasonic deleted the release of a mysterious “GS1″ camera. 12-50mm zoom lens release postponed!
There are some changes in the original Panasonic roadmap. I have been told by two sources that Panasonic had the plan to announce a new “GS” camera in Spring 2011. That plan has changed and the GS camera will not be announced. It is unclear yet if we will ever see the GS
The sources could not (or didn’t want) to tell me more about the camera. I really hope this wasn’t the Micro Four Thirds version of the DMC-L1 model. That would be pity!
Panasonic also made a major change regarding the lens roadmap. The 12-50mm f/2.5-3.3 lens release has been postponed at least until the last quarter of the year. Also in that case I didn’t receive any reliable info about the cause of the delay although I do speculate that the reason is they have not enough production capability to release many new lenses. As you know the 25mm f/1.4 lens and probably a few reworked lenses (like the 7-14mm OIS) are scheduled to be announced in April.
I have quite a few new rumors I am working on and I will post them soon. So stay tuned on 43rumors!
