(FT5) rumor correction: LX8 does NOT use the same FZ-1000 sensor.
Huh, 1-2 times per year it happens that sources and I do not understand us right :) This is one of these cases. A highly trusted source actually told me the LX8 will NOT. I repeat NOT use the same FZ1000 sensor! There was a miscommunication before the FZ1000 announcement and I didn’t understand the LX8 doesn’t use the same FZ1000 sensor.
Sorry, for the mistake, but communication with sources is let’s say…not always 100% clear :)
P.S.: Panasonic FZ-1000 preorders at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here). In Europe at WexUK (Click here).
For sources: Sources can send me anonymous info at email@example.com (create a fake gmail account) or via contact form you see on the right sidebar. Thanks!
