(FT5) UPDATED: Panasonic will release an advanced GF camera!!! And a new GH successor!

Share
Ichrio Kitao from Panasonic confirmed to PhotoRadar that “Panasonic plans to split the GF series into two lines and release a GF camera aimed at experienced photographers.”
That fits perfectly with the rumors I received saying that Panasonic is working on a Micro Four Thirds version of the popular Panasonic L1 (Click here to see that cam on eBay). And one more hot news: “Kitao told us that the company’s next priority is the GH series and bringing out a successor to the GH2” and “Improving EVF resolution and refresh rate is a priority and Panasonic intends to liaise with its supplier, Epson, to achieve this.
I also received some news about that and will write more soon on 43rumors. Stay tuned! Lot’s of Olympus rumors coming too ;)

UPDATE: In an interview with Amateur Photographer, Kitao said Panasonic is committed to the Micro Four Thirds system and has no plans to change the sensor format. “Once we launched the G system we have a responsibility to continue the system“. My personal take on that. Mr, Kitao, this sounds like “would like to change format but I can’t“! You should have answered something like that: “Why change sensor format? m43 is the best format to realize compact and good quality mirrorless cameras!” Better communication please ;)
