(FT5) Confirmed by trusted sources: Large sensor LX8 coming in July.


The current LX7 with Gariz case.

My best sources confirmed that Panasonic will launch a large sensor LX8 in July. Panasonic goal is indeed to make a high quality compact camera as the Sony RX100M3 (just announced two weeks ago). Therefore it has a built-in EVF but it will keep the LX7 look.

Announcement date is set for July 16!

One more thing: It’s still not confirmed via trusted sources but rumor has it that Olympus will also launch a high-end compact inspired by the Olympus Trip 35 film cameras (on auction here on eBay).

For sources: Sources can send me anonymous info at (create a fake gmail account) or via contact form you see on the right sidebar. Thanks!
