an imaginary ultra-compact Panasonic camera. Not a real product! :)
According to one trusted source Panasonic will announce the new ultra compact camera next week on Thursday (October 10). The source didn’t share any details on the camera and new lenses yet. But we know from other sources that we can expect the following new stuff:
1) A new Panasonic GM1 very thin and small camera. Close to the Sony RX100MII in terms of size. No mechanical shutter at all. Body is made of magnesium with a leather finnish. It comes in total black, silver/black, silver/brown.
2) A new Panasonic 12-32mm compact zoom (non PZ). Even smaller than the current Panasonic X Vario PZ 14-42mm.
3) The new Nocticron 42,5mm f/1.2 lens will be in Store in December. I guess the price and final specs will be announced on October 10 too.
I can also confirm that there will be an Olympus announcement in October. More about that soon…
