This could be the next Konica Patent likely for the Panasonic branded Micro Four Thirds lens. Egami spotted the design of the 150mm f/2.8 MFT tele. As you know the Panasonic will be released in 2014.

New GM1 reviews (Pier says GM1 video seems to have more resolution than the GH3)

Share

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 Video Sample Movie | Walk in Paris Montmartre from Pier-Yves Menkhoff on Vimeo.

Pier-Yves sent me the following video and text:

If the overall grip of the DMC- GM1 is nice, it is not easy to film with the Panasonic. The slightest movement of fingers active the wheel, the menu, touch screen, etc. It is very unpleasant. Also, ity is impossible to use a tripod. Except if you have the Panasonic Lens 14 mm or 12-32 mm. During the editing, I am amazed by the resolution of the image. It seems better than the one of the DMC- GH3.

CameraLabs (Click here) tested the GM1 and writes:

Where the GM1 really shines though is compared to rival enthusiast compacts like the Sony RX100 II. Even if you never remove the GM1’s kit zoom, the combination enjoys a lot of advantages over the Sony, which for me personally make it a more flexible and usable camera.

More GM1 test at Pixelmania,  DC.watch and at Itmedia.
