It’s always dangerous to rely on informations released by company représentants. So pleas take that info with a grain of salt ok? I got two mails from 43rumors reader that had the chance to talk to some Panasonic rep:
1) Rumor one: I have high hopes that this news I am going to post is simply untrue. 43rumors reader and photographer Jimmy Patton (here on G+) told me that he “talked to a Panasonic rep today and asked about the 42.5mm and 150mm… Answer was “not this year“.
2) Rumor two: 43rumors readers Zetton was at the CP+ show and told me that “While talking with the Panasonic staff I have been told that Panasonic will release the next GX1 soon”
So, no new lens by Panasonic in 2013? DC.watch reported the lens should come within 2013 (and Panasonic roadmap shows 2013 as target year). Would be the first time ever a company doens’t announce a new lens for a full year! And please, don’t define the newly upgraded 14-42mm as a “new lens”!
