(FT4) Four new Olympus and Panasonic FourThirds and MicroFourThirds cameras until May-June! And Four MFT lenses! And more to come!


The Panasonic MicroFourThirds lens roadmap

In these days we are receiving an increasing ammount of new rumors. If only half of them will come true, I would be extremely happy! You can definitely expect some exciting news soon.

There is a 90% chance that between February and May-June we will see:
– at least two new Olympus FourThirds cameras
– at least two new MicroFourThirds cameras cameras, one from Olympus and one from Panasonic
– at least four MicroFourThirds lenses (two from Olympus and two from Panasonic)

With “at least” I want to say that there could be more of this!

There is a 60% chance to see:
– new FourThirds Olympus Zuiko Lenses
– a new Panasonic LX3 successor
– more compact cameras (no MicroFourThirds!)

Keep following us!

    Do you have any idea if we’ll see a super-fast portrait lens like a 42/1.2?
    That would be soooo cool!!

    thanks for your information anyway!

    It’s going to be too late for me. That’s too bad. I love my E-3 but it’s not going to cut it as my needs change in the next few months. Full frame Canikon here I come. :(

  • Would have been interesting if you published some of the actual rumors told you, not just “rumors about rumors”. What kind of 4/3 lenses? What 4/3 bodys etc. etc.

  • M43

    When you say “at least two new m43 lenses”, do you mean new beyond those we already know
    will be launched this year, like the 14/2.8, 9-18/4-5.6, and so on?

      Hi M43! I am referring to the known lenses.

  • carlos

    Any chance one of these m4/3 cameras will have a new sensor with better DRange?….

    • admin

      Carlos…the answer is YES

  • carlos

    Thanks for the answer…thats great news…

  • rumorofrumor

    the 4/3 lens is 100/2.8 SWD

  • lolque

    how about the rumor of fuji MFT camera?
    i want their Super EXR CCD

  • Mike

    It is good stuff if is true that single focal ZUIKO DIGITAL lenses for classic FT are coming. I am wondering if Olympus cross that f2.0 aperture line. There are excellent fast telephoto ZUIKOs but none fast (f2.0 or better) normal (50mm ekviv.) and/or wide lenses from Olympus. I keep my eyes on you, 43rumors ;).
