(FT5) LF1 has 7x zoom and samse LX7 size.

Share

Reminder: End of next week Panasonic will announce the new LF1 and the G6 camera. I am not sure about the exact day yet…

Another trusted source shared some info about the LF1:
1) The LF1 has the same size as the LX7. And it looks more like the Canon S90.
2) The EVF is tiny and not of a very high quality

A second source confirmed that the LF1 has also the same sensor size of the LX7 and a 7x zoom lens.

The G6 has a 16 megapixel sensor, same Gh2 video quality and the size is close to the current G5.

Rumors classification explained (FT= FourThirds):
FT1=1-20% chance the rumor is correct
FT2=21-40% chance the rumor is correct
FT3=41-60% chance the rumor is correct
FT4=61-80% chance the rumor is correct
FT5=81-99% chance the rumor is correct

Chinese creativity: They may do a Sigma DP MFT mount :)

Share

I think Sigma Foveon sensors are the technology of the future and it’s only a matter of time until they solve the few remaining issues (like low quality at high ISO). That said a Chinese company promises right now that they can modify your Sigma DP camera in an interchangeable lens camera for every mount. On the picture you see the Leica M-mount version.

Just send in your DP camera at Taobab (translation here) and ask for the mount you want. The full modification costs you round $300.

Dusk – SLR Magic 25mm Night Test from Jurek Ugarow on Vimeo.

All SLR magic lenses are now for sale at Adorama too (Click here). They still don’t list the brand new 25mm f/0.95 lens which I think is also the best and most interesting SLR magic lens.

The 20mm pancake lens is back in Stock for $335 at Amazon (Click here).
