(FT2) Panasonic may launch compact-style Micro Four Thirds camera



We know a compact m4/3 will come from Olympus but Panasonic is not sleeping here! Ichiro Kitao general manager at Panasonic’s Products Planning Group, said: ‘It is one of the choices – a more entry-level piece than the G1 or a step up piece…In the coming years we would like to expand our G Micro [Four Thirds] system.’


P.s: I like the mockup, this is exactly what I want!

  • Is the view of the 21/1.4 lens real?

    While the image is just someone’s personal rendering I imagine Panasonic and Leica will one again collaborate and introduce a successor to the Panasonic L1/Leica Digilux 3. Based on micro Four Thirds it could be significantly smaller however, like their predecessor, the Panasonic LC1/Leica Digilux 2.

    the pana/leica version will at least have a weak AA-filter unlike the olympus version that will probably have an effective resolution of 6mp at 12mp on the sensor :P

    Soll dies das Nachfolgemodell der LUMIX GF1 sein? Zusätzlich mit eingebautem elektronischem Sucher, vergleichbar dem
    mechanischen LEICA M – Schnittbildsucher? Dann kann man endlich alle M- und R-Objektive über zwei Anschlussringe ver-
    wenden, wie ich es schon seit 1 Jahr an der LUMIX GH1 mache.
    Nur ist der Kamerakörper kleiner und deshalb handlicher, wie eine kleine LEICA M. Endlich das RICHTIGE für begeisterte
    LEICA Hobbyfotografen mit alten LEICA M- und R-Kamerakörpern und den dazugehörigen Qualitätsobjektiven, die auch sehr gut
    in der Digitalfotografie eingesetzt werden können!!!
