Katten Bjoernen used the new Panasonic 100-300mm lens. He also alerts you that: “This is not proper way to make any conclusion. This is prematur in all what that words stands for.
When i get 1.0 SW there will a better version to make conclusion out from.” Meanwhile also Hybridcams.fr posted some image samples taken with the new Panasonic GH2.
In case you missed some rumor here is a short list of latest important news we posted on 43rumors. In summary: Olympus confirmed that they will continue to develop Four Thirds and that Micro Four Thirds will replace the low-mid DSLRs. Zeiss plans to make a new Micro Four Thirds zoom lens. Ricoh could release a Micro Four Thirds module in 2011. Mr. Kitao Itirou talks about the GF2 and 25mm f/1.4 lens which we expect to be announced in February-March:
We do not expect any new camera or lens during the next weeks (if not 2-3 months). But we are working on new rumors about the next Olympus PEN and Panasonic GF2 cameras. And both promised to release high-end cameras and lenses. We hope to receive some info about that stuff soon!

With the release of the Nikon D90 and the Canon 5D MarkII (over two years ago) the age of the VDSLR (DSLR with video cameras) began. But according to the director Frank Glencairn that age is already past: “Okay, this is it. VDSLR is dead. It was cool, it was fun, it was great but it was also a major pain in the ass. It´s over. Panasonic came out with the AF100 at IBC and then there is Sony and the Scarlet soon. We finally come back to real camcorders, without moire and all the other problems to deal with. Sorry Zacuto.”
Panasonic is about to release the very first professional (bye bye Sony NEX-VG10), useable (bye bye Canon 5D) and cheap (bye bye RED) big sensor videocamera. I am one those guys that shot documentaries and I really like that camera. That’s why my production company preordered the AG-AF100 (at BHphoto). It’s great news for the Micro Four Thirds folks (even if you don’t care about video). I hope the success of that camera will push Olympus-Panasonic and other third party lens makers to delivers us new lenses!
