Some more info about the new Panasonic G90

I still don’t know on what day Panasonic will announce the new G90. But today a source sent me this:

I did hold and try the new panasonic g90 in my hands . It was pretty like the g85 in size. Has a better grip. The evf was not as good as the one of the G9. The Panasonic guy told me it has same sensor as g9, but disappointing for me he say it was more of a gh5 light.

Panasonic has a press conference on April 7 at the NABshow. Not sure if that’s the day they will announce this new camera…

Olympus interview at Phototrend: More MFT cameras will be announced in 2019!

The French website Phototrend interviewed a bunch of Olympus managers. Here a couple of takeaways:

– In 2018 Olympus did not announce new MFT products because of the move of the factory from China to Vietnam
– In 2019 Olympus plans to release more new MFT cameras
We do not want to go to the full format and want to stay focused on what we can do because we want to offer compact and lightweight products
– The MFT system has a unique advantage over the competition which is size and portability.
– E-M1II sales did growth after Olympus announcement that they will stick to MFT only.

There is also a lot of talk about the new E-M1X features. But nothing new to report here :)
