The Panasonic GH1 has found a worthy competitor with the announcement of the new Canon T2i. The Canon T2I costs $799.99 at amazon (body only) but Canon can’t deliver a dedicated video lens like the Panasonic 14-140mm lens. Now that competition is becoming stronger we are really curious how the Panasonic GH2 will look like! According to Zone-10 says the Panasonic GH1 successor will come with a new Panasonic 15 Megapixel sensor and “the new sensor is almost certainly to be fully AA filterless with only electronic means of correcting moire and aliasing.“. Let’s see if their speculation will become true…

What is going to happen now that the Olympus E-PL1 has been unveiled? 43rumors is working to catch some news about future Panasonic and Olympus cameras. If you read the worlwide Micro-FourThirds forums you will notice how everybody is wishing a rangefinder-styled compact camera. Many of you want the EVF built-in in the body and not external. Let’s see if Panasonic will satisfy the request!
Latest rumors are telling us that Panasonic will at least announce one new MFT camera. Some rumors we recieved do say two are coming (even better!). At the moment it seems very unlikely to see the Panasonic GH1 replacement.
Fact is the Panasonic G1 is discontinued in Japan and totally deleted from some official Panasonic websites (like here in Canada).
We are almost certain Panasonic will show some of the pre-announced lenses at PMA (Feb 21-23).
And what about Olmypus?
We are still waiting to get news about the E-3 replacement which will probably be annouced at the end of February or earyl March. And we really hope Olympus will enjoy us all with the release of new lenses!
Stay tuned on 43rumors!
I just switched to the new layout design. it is just a first step of the work I have to do. It is very likely that every day you will see small updates. On Friday 43rumors will have the new server and there will be no more blackouts.
And if all works well we will have new rumors to post. Panasonic and Olympus still have to show us new stuff!
Not only is the Panasonic G1 officially out of Stock in Japan but now Panasonic Canada directly removed all G1 references. Something new is coming???
