Olympus OM-D *better* video quality than Panasonic GH2 (rumor)

M43 rumors is reporting that the upcoming Olympus OM-D will have better video quality than the Panasonic GH2. If true this could be really great news! I was expecting to see some video specs at some point but I didn’t expect to hear *better* than GH2 quality. The real question is what Panasonic is going to do with the GH3!

Canon 7D MKII or 5D MKIII Photos?? (leak/rumor)


It looks like pictures of a possible Canon 5D MKIII or 7D MKII have surfaced on the web. This is probably THE most substantive rumor/leak regarding either of these cameras to date. Something tells me that this feels like a new 7D. I have nothing to back that up but my hunch says 7D. Either way I just hope they put a freakin’ headphone jack in the new 7D and 5D. Also would love to see a 1080p video crop function put into both new models.

Olympus OM-D Mirrorless “retro slr” FEB 5th

source:M43 rumors

M43 rumors is reporting that the new Olympus mirrorless will be called the Olympus OM-D. It will be a retro styled mirrorless camera that will resemble the OM film cameras of old. Hopefully Olympus figures out what 24p is and sticks it in this new camera. This could really give the upcoming Panasonic GH3 a run for its money. The real question is will Panasonic drop the boring industrial design with their new cameras like Fuji and Olympus have?

Panasonic 12-35mm and 35-100mm X lenses F2.0, Weather Sealed and $1700???

Source:M43 Rumors

M43 Rumors has new updates on the upcoming Panasonic 12-35mm and 35-100mm X lenses. It looks like Panasonic could be going big and expensive with the new X series lenses and the Panasonic GH3. There is possibility of weather sealing and a $1700 price tag per lens. The fast f2.0 aperture idea seems to not be completely dead. This is really potentially good news and leads to speculation about if Panasonic will be releasing a camera that has weather sealing. The successor to the GH2 could be a big jump in the features department.

I am personally still hoping that they will release a 12-35mm F2.0 lens. It will be most likely be relatively big, heavy, expensive, and not for everyone. However a really solid fast zoom for video users would be worth every penny.

(RUMOR): Nikon D800 36MP sensor w/ pictures to come

source:Nikon Rumors

Nikon Rumors is saying that the Nikon D800 will have a 36MP sensor and that there will be pictures soon. 36mp seems like a hell of a lot of pixels to stuff onto a full frame sensor.

UPDATE:Check the new post here for more specs and pictures.

(RUMOR) Fuji LX10 APS-C Interchangeable Lens Camera With Optical Viewfinder is saying that the upcoming Fuji interchangeable lens camera will be called the LX10. It will supposedly have an APS-C sensor and a optical not hybrid view finder. There will also be priority mount lenses with possibly four lenses. An 18mm F2 and 35mm F1.4 are likely.

Now the big question comes from the rumor about the viewfinder. If it is optical, then is it going to be a REAL rangefinder not just a hybrid rangefinder style camera. The LX10 could be the successor to the Epson RD-1.

(RUMOR): Bad News! New Panasonic 12-35mm might only be F2.8 not F2

Source:M43 Rumors

M43 Rumors is reporting on a rumor about the upcoming Panasonic 12-35mm X zoom lens. There was big hope from video and still users that it would be a constant aperture lens at F2. The extra stop between F2 and F2.8 is more of less the difference in depth of field between m4/3 and APS-C. A high quality Panasonic 12-35mm F2 lens with OIS would make the platform more attractive. Lets hope that this is just a rumor and that Panasonic gives us that extra stop.

RUMOR: All Black Fuji X100 Coming Early 2012 via

At the beginning of 2012, Fujifilm is expected t0 release a new “all black” limited edition X100 camera. Included in the package will be a black gift box, black lens hood and adaptor ring plus a matching black leather case. The black limited edition Fuji X100 may not be available for sale in all markets (similar to this X100 limited edition camera).




M43 Rumors is confirming that the Panasonic GX1 will have a 16 megapixel sensor.

Of course every rumor is questionable, and so are mine. But there are some websites saying the GX1 will have a 12 Megapixel sensor. And many readers contacted me to ask me if that is true. I am writing this post to answer you all and to confirm you again that my sources are telling me that it has a 16 Megapixel sensor. And I am 99,999% sure I am right :)

Anyway, it doesn’t matter that much now. The GX1 will be announced on Tuesday 8 November at 6-7am London time. Be sure to be online at 43rumors! I will update you with all news and reviews. And I want to remind you that we now have a new Facebook fanpage (Click here) you should join!
