(FT3) Two new MicroFourThirds zoom lenses to be announced along the new Panasonic AG-AF100?


One of our readers that works for a big online-store told us that he has been trained to use the new Panasonic AG-AF100. He don’t know when exactly the new camera will be launched (but he is sure it will be soon). He also saw at least two new Panasonic MicroFourThirds zooms that are optimized for video (silent autofocus and smooth manual zoom and focusing). Those new lenses would also be perfect for the older Panasonic GH1 and the new Panasonic GH2 ;)

Reminder: The Panasonic 14-140mm lens is the only Panasonic lens optimized for video. Olympus has two MSC (Movie and Still Compatible) lenses the Olympus 9-18mm and the Olympus 14-150mm lenses but those are without IS and Panasonic camera don’t have in-body stabilization.

(FT2) New mirrorless camera spotted into the wild. A Samsung camera or is it a Panasonic?

An SLRclub forum user spotted that camera. He believes that this is the new Samsung NX100 but he doesn’t exclude that this could be also a different camera from a different brand.
There is not much we can see from that picture :(

UPDATE: I also thought this could be the white Panasonic GF1 but that image doesn’t exatcly match the GF1. For example you miss teh

UPDATE: Tomorrow new layout and new features for 43rumors!

After months of gestation, tests and a lot of frustration the new theme is finally ready! We tested the theme on other websites before to install it on 43rumors. We wanted to be sure that almost everything works.

This is a major change for 43rumors. Not only because the website will become far more cleaner (and I hope nicer) but also because new features will be added. One of the most precious value of 43rumors is…you! And that’s why the new 43rumors websites runs on buddypress (a social blog). You will be able to become official 43rumors members. You can make friends, send messages to each other, create fan groups and in near future forum and wiki will be added!

I will give you more infos soon but let’s do the installation now and fix the bugs!
