(FT3) new Panasonic MicroFourThirds camera to be launched on February 2010

We received two new mails from new sources. Both messages do say that Panasonic will launch a new MicroFourThirds camera in February. It is very likely that the is going to be “upgraded”. Also a new generation of Panasonic sensors should be used for the camera.

(FT2) It is rumored that the camera will be the “GH5” and use a new 12 Megapixel sensor. 24Mbit/s video compression should also be one of the upgraded features.

No specific details are available yet.

(FT4) What we already know is that on February Panasonic will launch new lenses!

Poll evaluation “What we want from Panasonic and Olympus”

We closed our poll. We had over 2.100 unique voters. Every person had three votes. 29% of the voters came from US, 34% from Europe, 23% from Japan and 14% from other regions.

What do we learn from the poll results?

1) It came with no surprises that people needs prime lenses (and possibly fast lenses!). Almost half of the voters voted for it!

2) The first surprise came on position three: 28% of the voters wants a camera with built-in electronic viewfinder (rangefinder look!)

3) 26% of the voters wants Olympus and Panasonic to continue the “classic” FourThirds line development. And many people (26%) is wants a High-End camera model that includes all the best features (wheatersealed body, fast autofocus and all the gimmics you need inside a High-End model).
Duarte (a 43rumors reader) added the following conclusion “The interesting issue here is that both of these groups are probably 4/3 hardcore users. The conclusion is that half of them are on jump ship mode (4/3 -> m4/3).

4) “Only” 14% needs a fullframe camera.

Feel free to add your considerations! Comment this post!

P.S.: I voted for my “monochrome sensor camera” option, and only 2% voted for my idea :)

The final results are here:

If the image quality is on top will you buy that lens?
