Panasonic 12-100mm and 12-120mm patents.

Share

Egami spotted a new Panasonic patent describing a new Panasonic 12-100 or 12-120mm f/4-5.6 zoom. Very handy to have a low cost zoom with 12mm at the wide and 100-120mm at the tele end. Hope this design gets approved for mass production!

Leica CEO says no MFT camera from Leica

Share

leica_gm1_clone

Leica GM1 clone design by Seung-hun Han via Dicahub. Yep…just change the logo and charge $500 extra 

Leica CEO Alfred Schopf said that Leica won’t be building on Panasonic’s Micro Four Thirds format (Source: Leica Camera Forum). That said it’s 100% sure they will launch a new mirrorless system in collaboration with Panasonic (Panasonic will build the cameras).

To be honest, I still don’t believe Alfred is telling us the truth here…

New Panasonic GM1 reviews (Digitalversus and 1001tema).

Free Handgrip promotion in UK (More info at Promotions.panasonic.co.uk)

Digitalversus (Click here) writes:

The Panasonic Lumix GM1 is small, light, stylish, pleasant to use and takes top-quality pictures. What’s not to like? This interchangeable lens camera packs a good range of features and quality tech specs into a cute little camera that’s perfectly portable. A few concessions have been made here and there, but that doesn’t stop the GM1 being one of the nicest little cameras to pass out of our test lab in the run up to Christmas 2013.

The Russian site 1001tema (translation here). Athaugh the google translation tool is making quite a mess it’s worth to check the site for the great pics they posted!

Test images have been posted at Optyczne.

GM1 preorder list:
In US at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto.
In Europe at Amazon Germany, Wex Germany, Amazon UK, Fotohanskeuzekamp, Cyberphoto Sweden and Wex UK.
