Sources from SLRclub Korea (found via Dicahub) said that Panasonic will launch a surprising new fixed lens camera with FT sensor on July 16! We are talking about a second fixed lens camera after the LX8! There are no other details yet but I hope to get some more info soon.
Two years ago MR-Uematsu told in an interview at Quesabesde that there could be a “possible future fixed lens camera with larger Four Thirds sensor”. He said that it would have to be smaller than the [shoplink 26836 ebay]GX1[/shoplink], feature a fixed and bright f/1.7 or f/2.0 lens and price could be around 700 Euro. But Uematsu does n0t know if there would be a high demand for a model like that.
Let’s see if Uematsu’s camera will become real in 3 weeks!
