New Lumix camera with “Sick AF” performance might be announced soon!

In his latest LUMIX live-session, Sean Robinson did place another easter egg. While picking up a card reader that “accidentally” fell to the ground, he showed a printing on the back of his t-shirt: “S1CK A.F.”

Likely a hint for a new camera with phase detection AF? Sean did a similar “eater egg” action before the GH6 launch. And I guess this time he is doing it for a new S camera and not a new MFT model.


Thanks Harry!

RUMOR: Definitely more new MFT camera(s) coming in 2022

We are now used with very long periods without new MFT camera announcements. Some of you were worried that after the big OM-1 and GH6 launch we might have entered a very slow and boring period. But today I am here to tell you that I am now 100% certain there will be new MFT camera announcements in 2022. I am working to get the details about those models, but if the GH6 and OM-1 are too expensive for you, than wait for what’s coming next!

Here is the video about it (please subscribe the new youtube channel).

OM 100mm f/2.8 Macro IS patent

Back in September the latest OM Digital Lens roadmap teased the launch of a new “macro” lens in the 100mm range. Asobinet just spotted the patent of this lens: It’s a 100mm f/2.8 macro:

 

I am pretty sure this lens will be released this year!
