We will soon see the new Panasonic GM1 MFT camera and a new 12-32mm lens. I am still unsure about the exact announcement date. The camera biggest feature is actually….the size! It’s said to be very thin and small and still very useable…not a toy like the Sony QX :)
Sources told me that this will be Panasonic’s answer to the high-end compact camera and fixed lens camera market. It’s smaller than most of them (around the size of an RX100) but has a mount for interchangeable lenses. And the new 12-32mm lens is incredibly small. The finish of both camera and lenses is of very high quality and the camera uses a new kind of shutter. This will be the first MFT camera that really easily(!) fits in your pocket with a zoom lens.
I am not sure yet about the sensor but I think it should be the same of the GX7 camera (updated: It’s GX7 and not G6 sensor). But like I said… specs here do not matter a lot. It’s all about size! So please…watch out for leaks! Can’t wait to see it!
For sources: Sources can send me anonymous info at firstname.lastname@example.org (create a fake gmail account) or via contact form you see on the right sidebar. Thanks!
