(FT5) Another exceptional µ4/3 lens from Panasonic is soon to be unveiled!

Share

Few days ago we told you that at Photokina (September) Panasonic will finally release the 14mm f/2.5, 100-300mm and 1-2 new video lenses for the new MFT camcorder (The AG-AF100). Today two of our best sources told us that we should expect one more “exceptional” lens. A lens that was not one the Panasonic roadmap -> yes Panasonic cheated on us ;)
The sources didn’t reveal any details about the lens. But they said we don’t have to wait a long time to know it…

Just a reminder. Few weeks ago we received rumors from good sources saying that Panasonic was working on fast primes (faster than f/1.4). We don’t know if one of those fast primes could be announced now. There has been also a rumor saying that there could be a MicroFourThrids version of the current Panasonic 25mm f/1.4 FourThirds lens.

Let’s see…

Olympus digital camera sales down by -18%

In the fiscal first quarter (April-June 2010) Olympus sold 18% less cameras than in the quarter before. The result is not surprising if you consider that there have been no new FourThirds camera for a year now. “Only” two MicroFourThirds cameras, the Olympus E-P2 and the Olympus E-PL1 have been announced since July 2009. 43rumors expects at least two new Olympus cameras to be announced at Photokina (E-5 and a new Pen). Let’s see if that will stop the sales loss.

(FT3) UPDATED: a new “tweaked” sensor for the MicroFourThirds camcorder?

According to 43rumors sources the AG-AF100 will use a “tweaked” sensor which works slightly different than the GH1 and GH2. Panasonic could use a “non RGB flow” that is optimized for the video codec. One of our sources also added an awesome detail: Panasonic is working on a loss less compression! He doesn’t know if that compression will be added to the camera but he knows they are working on it!

Bye the way, Panasonic officially said that the AG-AF100 will not use the GH1 sensor…(Source: DVXuser)

Reminder:
FT= FourThirds
FT1=probably fake rumor
FT2=rumor from unkown sources
FT3=50% chance it is correct
FT4=rumor from known sources
FT5=almost certainly correct!
