The biggest Asian photo-show will start on February the 9th in Yokohama. So what should be expect from it? If the rumors we received are correct the answer will be….not a lot! Pentax will announce their mirrorless system in March, Nikon in April, Canon will announce a new Rebel camera (but no mirrorless camera). And what is coming from current “mirrorless companies”? We have been told that the Panasonic G3 presentation will be held weeks after the show, Sony will announce their next NEX camera much later, and Samsung also. Olympus has a press release on February 8th but we still don’t know if they will announce a mirrorless camera or new lenses.
As you see there is nothing exciting we can talk about now. I guess the real “hot” months will be March-April-May. But I am surprised to hear that the biggest asian show gets simply “skipped” by most manufacturers!
