(FT3) Panasonic FZ300 specs: Sony 4/3 sensor, clean 4K readout and 24-400mm Leica lens.


Two months ago Panasonic registered three new camera names: G7, GX8 and FZ300. The G7 has been announced, the GX8 will be announced around September but it’s still unclear when Panasonic will announce the FZ300. And recently an anonymous source sent me some info about that camera:

FZ 1000 MKII (or FZ300) will be released in September. It will feature a different approach from the FZ 1000 MK I in that according to my source, it will feature a 24-400 leica lens, F1.8 – F4, with F1.8 up to 30mm, and at 200mm F 2.8.
Also, it will have a mic input, 4K video full sensor readout clean (no crop), and the biggest news is this will feature the Sony 4/3 sensor.
Capacitive touchscreen, articulating LCD, and 2.36m EVF.
Styling will be radically different too however I do not have these details.
The price will be $1499 USD.

I have yet no clue if those specs are correct or not. But if they are this sounds like a hell of an amazing camera!
