Are there any left?

Panasonic have said they are running 2 systems,they cant do 8K with cropcrop sensor size.Their goal is 8K for Tokyo Olympics with the FF system.

They are only for Leica budget buyers!...As good as they may be,the Pano/Sigma lenses will be competitive with CaNikOny glass.

Well, it seems the SL mount is correct.

The announcement on 25th brings Sigma into the development equation as well.

"Many" new lenses available on release...Not too sure "how MANY" but we can just wait and see!

So the highest level rumour,so it can be taken as "reliable" is saying the Pano FF has a higher MP count than 42.

Consequently,its no entry level FF.

Aimed at highend video and stills.

Well, the latest news is that Leica has some sort of involvement with the development of FF Panasonic, perhaps it could be a Leica mount afterall.

Its been a crazy month of speculation from all the brands leading into PhotoKina???

Yes, 3000 U$ has been bandied around but it could be more???

Present Panasonic buyers are paying a fair bit for GH5 and S,the FF will offer much more,so perhaps the price is justified.

Panasonic could jump in at the top end, 50 mp has been suggested but lets wait and see.

8K isnt a given at this point,theres no news on that yet.However,this line of camera is the one that 8K will be in.Itwont be in M43 line.

On the rumour websites they rate the information,the new mount information is near the top level..meaning its close to 100% reliable.

Go to mirrorless rumours and clik the M43 tab...you will find it there.

So the latest is...A lot more MP than the 30 thats been reported and the sensor is a Panasonic design(they do own a slice of TowerJazz).

Its a new mount.



As with every other M/L mount.....The CaNik adapters will enable full functionality.May not be every CaNik lens but still will be plenty to choose from.

:lol:

CaNik glass will be adaptable to the Panasonic....Thats unusual.The adapters will be made by Panasonic.

So thats really a play for CaNik users.

Come buy our body and use your existing lenses.

I'm wondering if this is the Nuke in the war?...$$$ony have something up their sleeve I'm sure.

Funny thing is,plenty of the rumours are accurate.

I like to formulate an idea of anything new as the information becomes available.

I purposely didnt list the high end video specs which come from the accurate sources according to the site administrator(he rates the accuracy numerically).



Where,i look for fog every morning mostly its clear!

As expected its very high end Video specs.

They are tossing up U$ 3K, 30mp, possibly 2 cards but not sure which format.

Stabilisation in lenses not in the body.

WR

Adapters made for rival glass ???...specifically EF...Hmm...that would be a first i suppose?

No mention of the crop adapter for M43,so perhaps that was Fake News.

Thats what i'm hearing.

They read the declining market for cameras and exited,seeing the Smartphone business was expanding.

They didnt not stop making and developing sensors.

the MAIN PURPOSE of FF Panasonic!

Its not to shoot stills,but could be OK?

This is the Camera they promised for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics to shoot 8K video.

Release is rumoured first quarter 2019, no idea about any lenses yet.

So a M43 shooter can soon buy a FF camera,i'd say thats an upgrade path...

Just because theres a crop mode(assuming the rumour is correct) is a bonus...Another company did that too...they didnt need an adapter though.


Mind you,their crop mode wasnt quite as big.

The DA 40mm is slight extra weight with 2 f/ls...its about the smallest,but 35mm f2.4 is fun too.No WR though.

A little under if its 45mp FF,but is it a sensor we know about and is it $$$ony?

The formula to calculate crop is 36 divided by the square of the crop.(2.25) in the case of K-1.

Seeing mft top end is 20mp,perhaps we will see a BIG mp sensor ?...They exist but when they surface is anyones guess???

Could be,their prices for top of range M43 are high....with a FF thats capable of 8K(thats a distinct possibility)....This new Pano maybe 4K plus???

Also the rumour??(sketchy source) mill is saying the crop mode on the new Pano is 2x and an adapter will be provided from launch.With over 50AF m43 lenses,its an instant upgrade path for OLY and PANO users.

The end of the month should be very interesting.

Another minor point about M43,the sensor size at 17x13 mm is a perfect fit for the Pentax 110 lenses,cheap primes that yield great IQ.

Up until now they have only used contrast detect AF,if the new FF does that it probably will be behind in stills.Anyway,i'm hoping they come with something quite good and a surpise is nice.



I have no doubt its got a good chance of being the leading FF video cam.They have the pedigree and their dedicated high end Video cams are being outsold by Canon i've heard.So less prone to protect the high end stuff.(like Canon does).



It wont be $$$ony size!

I'm expecting that Pano will lead the video FF category once they announce.I'm also expecting after their development of the G9,the stills will be competitive.
Very interesting day that 25th of the month.

It was speculation because of the 7 FF lenses they patented last year coupled with a "big announcement" in 2019 and Pany's move to FF.People put a few things together and concluded/assumed FF Oly was a given.

However, the news this morning is that the big announcement is a "video orientated" M43 camera....FF will remain speculation for a while yet.
