(FT5) Also Panasonic Japan says new models are ready to be unveiled!

From March 11 to March 14 the “CP+” show will take place in Yokohama. Panasonic Japan confirms that they will show the new models on that event (But maybe the official announcement will take place earlier…next week?). The very bad google translation says:  “digital camera with an advanced and compact model will continue to introduce. And for you to experience hands on the camera model and compact model…

We expect Panasonic to unveil two new MicroFourThirds cameras the G2 and the G10! Also the LX3 could get a successor!

Cuurrently the Pansonic LX3 price is continually dropping on Amazon (maybe thats a sign)

(FT3) Olympus patent rumors: adapter with integrated wide lens and adapter with SWD auto focus.


Just received an interesting email:

Got this first from omuser.com and they linked to http://www.mobile01.com/topicdetail.php?f=249&t=1417073&last=17479202 which has another link of the original Japanese post. It is about 2 new Olympus patents, it included the patent numbers but don’t know the validity.

1st patent is an M43 adapter that have an internal wide angle lens which can do the following:
it will half the original focal length of the legacy lens, then when used on M43 for the 2x focal length, the result will be exactly 1x the original legacy lens focal length.

2nd patent is to add an electronic contect to the adapter above which will somehow uses the SWD to control auto focus.

I don’t know much of the details, as the original Chinese translation of the Japan original is very weak as well. I am just translating what I know.

Editors note: If Olympus really patented it this doesn’t mean that they will bring it on market. But we can say there is a fair chance that will happen.

P.S.: Thanks A.!
