As reported on MirrorlessRumors the Panasonic built Leica T type mirrorless camera will be launched in April. And it’s now pretty save to say that this camera will not feature a Micro Four Thirds mount. Panasonic will make the camera and zoom lenses for the new Leica system.
It has still to be seen if Panasonic will ever join the system. Very unlikely if the sensor has the APS-C size. More likely if the camera uses a Full Frame sensor…
Gariz announced the new leather case for the mini Panasonic GM1. You can find them in Black or Brown on eBay (Click here). I didn’t expect a leather case to fit that nicely on the GM1. I was expecting it to make it look much…bigger. But it is not.
