Panasonic G2 and Panasonic G10…launch next week?


You all didn’t forget that the Panasonic “Focus on Imaging show” will be held at the NEC Birmingham from 7th-10th March …or not?

The official Panasonic UK website shows clearly the following text:

Now, we didn’t receive any reliable rumor about the exact launch date. If Panasonic wants to show the new MicroFourThirds cameras at that event they could probably announce the cameras in few days.

But few things are a little strange:

1) We didn’t recieve any rumor about the exact launch date
2) Panasonic UK changed the teaser (the new teaser doesn’t show the camera silhouttes) -> Click here to see the difference
3) Few weeks ago Panasonic made a countdown for the launch of a new website and they don’t do anything for the launch of their new products?

If this doesn’t happen than we should expect an annoucement next week at the C+ show in Japan (it starts on March 11).

Anyway we are definitely SURE two MFT models will be announced! The G2 and the G10. We also recieved some specs from new sources but we first want to check them with our rleiable sources. So expect more rumors soon.

    1080p30 mode panasonic is a must in the G2/G10, or I’ll be buying T2i.

  • fripper

    And what about the LX4/LX5? It seems like we have to keep waiting.. :(

  • Carlos

    Shouldnt we know something else by now?almost 5 days from the launch and all we know are names and a probable touchscreen feature?

  • MORE lens for m4/3 pls!!! and LX4/LX5!!!

    It’ll be interesting to see what Panasonic unveils. I think Canon has a real winner on their hands with the T2i, which in this economy is no small feat. I’m afraid that whatever Panasonic introduces, the T2i will be the best entry level DSLR for some time to come, certainly when it comes to video.

    Also, Panasonic has been making upper level cameras that tend to appeal to serious photographers. Adding a gimmick like a touch screen is a huge step backwards in my opinion. I don’t think that’s gonna sit well with the people who traditionally buy their higher end cameras. I guess we’ll have to see how it’s implemented. But my first thought is I would not want it.

    JT has a great point! The touch screen sounds like it came from marketing bozos rather than camera guys.

    I’m also considering the T2i. It seems to have just about everything the 7D has, and for less than $1000! Panasonic has got to come out swinging with great pictures, state of the art video, ease of use, decent price and more if it hopes to compete. I’m a big fan of MFT, but it can’t just be cool and go up against a giant like Canon, with its body of lenses and video experience.

    It will be 9th Mar.
