A big rumor time is ahead of us. And from what I got from my sources manufacturers are defintiely NOT going to wait til the Photokina in September to announce new great cameras. From begin January til mid February we can expect the following announcements:
Sony: New Sony NEX-7 successor is coming. It will likely use an updated new 24MP sensor and a more high-resolution EVF. It will also have on sensor PDAF. What we don't know yet is if Sony will also announce a new entry level NEX...pardon Alpha E-mount camera :)
Olympus: There will be certainly a new entry-level OMD camera. Not the E-M5 successor! It will be cheaper than the E-M5.
Panasonic: Panasonic is heavily working to launch the new GH 4K camera. I am not sure yet they will announce it in February or April. But it's coming!
Leica: Leica will launch a new mirrorless system with EVF and AF lenses. Primes will be designed and fabricated in Germany. The zooms are made by Panasonic in Japan. The camera should cost close to $2000 and have a bigger than ASP-C sensor (FF or less big).
Samsung: Samsung will launch a new NXF1. No specs are given yet but the "F" suggests that this could be the first FF camera?
Fuji: Fuji is going to make a digital version fo the glorious Fujica ST. While the X-PRO1s will come too.
Sigma: They are working on a interchangeable DP camera version. The chances stay good this will have an MFT mount.
Canon/Nikon/Ricoh/Pentax: It's very quiet on that front. There were some rumors about a Pentax LX FF camera but you know...these Pentax FF rumors are floating around the web since the web has been invented :)
So here we are, ready to start a new rumor time with new energy and with the new MirrorlessRumors theme! I kindly invite you to read the presentation of the new site here: http://www.mirrorlessrumors.com/welcome-to-the-new-mirrorlessrumors-theme.
Join in masses! :)
