Hi all,

I'm definitely interested in learn more about MFT.
On other side, and in terms of knowledge, all rumours or speculations about new products, give us some better approach to future layouts, features, and possibilities for a near future.

Beyond the undiscovered (or unrevealed) applications with de MFT system, probably to discuss in another topic (I would go embarrassed to suggest to the moderators or Gordon a forum only to discuss formats like MFT, FT, DX, FX, MX, etc).

Everyone, thought, have some "curiosity" on the unknowing, but predictable, though.

So, some one have view this?

http://www.dpnet.com.cn/html/2008-8/20080822_39647.html

http://www.4-3system.com/modules/news/

Another good new it's about the future Zuiko 9-18mm MFT lens (another interesting solution for even Panasonic MFT bodies).
And more solutions add to come for this new format.

With this news rumours, announces, speculations, what else I'm looking further to have a complete 3 or 4 lenses plus 2 bodies (a small for travelling and stay on the car). :D

Have you something to share on this matter?

thanks in advance ;)

Hi Jose, I'll add our preview to your list if you haven't seen it already...

http://www.cameralabs.com/reviews/Panas ... dict.shtml

We'll keep Micro Four Thirds to the individual manufacturer categories in the forum though - after all the others sections also cover each manufacturer's DSLRs, compacts, superzooms etc...

Looking forward to testing the G1!

Thank you for your reply, Gordon Laing.

In fact, I'm a newbie to cameralabs and your reviews (about a mount, and I see them all) and started only yesterday to see some workshops on yours dslrtips site.

Despite this topic subject, I pretend to be as correct as possible following the forum rules. I like to be straight, as you are on your reviews, analysis and considerations.

My proud to be replied by you (as certainly many Camera Labs forum participants)

Here are some other stuff I found past days:

http://panasonic.jp/dc/event_g1/report_n.html
http://www.digitalcamera.jp/html/HotNew ... -009-L.jpg
here we can see a interest picture showing G1 and L10 bodies exploded (despite I've read before in this forum G1 is a metal body, I never thought that)

Now here we can see also the new 14-140mm HD, 7-14mm, and fixed 20mm (pancake like) 1.7 lenses.
http://www.digitalcamera.jp/html/HotNew ... -018-L.jpg
http://www.digitalcamera.jp/html/HotNew ... -012-L.jpg

I found interesting to follow the image links on http://www.digitalcamera.jp/ to magnify many details about G1

one post about Leica's syster
http://leicarumors.com/2008/08/25/panas ... lens.aspx/

Finally, some interesting aspects on a future handy travel compact body:
http://www.photographion.com/micro-thir ... dy-photos/
SVGA electronic viewfinder on a hot shoe
Also a 21mm 2.4 pancake like lens with an interesting auto in lens cap!
(maybe a fake brochure, though)



I'm also viewed some close up's of one HD body exactly like the G1, but capable of record HD movies. (this close up's only focused "HD" in red on the front left side of the body without showing any mike or speaker system. Although the rumours are talking about stereo sound recording.)

Greetings from,

Ok,

Lets (let me) speculate about this new interesting system.
Something like a wish list for a new system (small one) looking further to new products:

- Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 kit lenses 14-45
I will consider two kit lenses only if Gordon Laing praise really much for the tele-foto zoom kit on is review. Doubt it.
Since I don't have any four thirds lenses, I need some one. I'm also wish it could be faster, though, it must be robust enough for some use.

- 10-20mm (x2 factor) fast lenses
This is my first further speculation/wish...
Even considering 7 to 14mm a spectacular range, I'll prefer if Sigma's create a version like 10-20mm four thirds. Thus, it's much more useful range on day to day, so, less lens changes.

- 50 to 80mm fixed focal length macro
There no need to be in "pancake like" style here if result better optics. I bet who interested on a good lens will pay the bulky as a price

- trigger to shot on movement detection like one/burst, one time/untill memory full under P A S to Lumix DMC-G1
if will be a trigger to shot under movement detection, I'm also consider a good telephoto-zoom with a four thirds to micro four thirds adapter. (even with manual focus)

- a second body like the one shared between Panasonic to Olympus on one of his forums (as said on the net), or like the prototype showed by Olympus in Photokina.
hope they have also range finders for the hot shoe instead EVF

- 11-22 bifocal fixed lengths pancake like evoking Leica tri-elmar concept
Consider this little second body, that's will be a so much good everyday use lens (hope they hear us/me speculate)

who more will be interested on this system and G1, want to share speculations too? ;))

bests,
