I received a few rumors about non Micro Four Thirds related products from Olympus and Panasonic. I choose to post them because might some of you is interested in reading those.
As you know the CES show starts on January 6th. According to our sources there will be plenty of new compact cameras from Olympus and Panasonic.
1) Olympus will unveil new ompact cameras and the very interesting high-end compact camera (see the picture on top). It’s called XZ-1, it features the same [shoplink 17288]Panasonic LX5[/shoplink] sensor (10 Megapixel and 1:1.63 size). That camera will feature an amazing 28-112mm f/1.8-2.5 Lens!!!! That’s a lens I would love to have for Micro Four Thirds also instead of my old and cheap [shoplink 17922 ebay]C-mount lens zoom[/shoplink] :(
2) Panasonic will launch a new “S” compact series. There will be a DMC-S1 and DMC-S3. But there will be more new compact cameras like the Panasonic DMC-TS3, Panasonic DMC-FH2 and the Panasonic FH5.
