Dpreview added the Panasonic Lumix DC-GX9 on their studio scene comparison:

“Our technical evaluation of the Panasonic GX9 has included a trip to the studio, where we put its 20MP Four Thirds sensor in front of our standard test scene. We’ve seen solid image quality from this sensor before, but Panasonic says that it has gone one step further and improved color rendition compared to both the 20MP GX8 and 16MP GX85. Take a closer look at its performance against its predecessors as well as its peers.”


(FT3) More confirmation about a new super high end Olympus camera!


Today a third source confirmed the rumors about a new super high end Olympus camera coming in 2019:

I have also heard about Olympus coming out with a “super high end” camera next year.  I was not told that it would be teased at Photokina, but I was told that the E-M1 MkII would be surpassed by a new camera.  No further details were provided.

I repeat that as far as I heard this is not the E-m1III or E-M5III but a new line of cameras. This sounds really exciting! I hope trusted sources can share us some solid details soon…

(FT1) Impossible rumor? Olympus new Super High End camera to be “teased” at Photokina?


We know Olympus has a 100 year anniversary party to organize before this years end. But our trusted sources told us the E-M5III is not going to be launched this year. So what could possibly be announced?

I got one rumor from two different but also “new” sources. Being new sources there is still a good chance their info is NOT reliable. So please take it with a grain of salt.  Still, I hope it is as it sounds highly intruiging. The sources wrote:

Source 1:
Soon a new camera will be announced by Olympus: sept 2018 – release in 2019.

Camera will be positioned above current E-M1 mark II.
Specs are not revealed yet, but got this information from Olympus.

Source 2:
Olympus will be adding a big item camera to their OM-D lineup in 2019 for their anniversary.
Very expensive and built to outshine all current models.

I give it a 20% chance that Olympus will indeed tease us a launch of a new high end camera. Something like Panasonic did with the GH5 two years ago. What also makes this rumor sound nearly impossible is that the camera will be placed above the E-M1II. Can’t think of a reason this makes actually sense unlike this is NOT a MFT camera…
