MFT fans rejoice: Sony just made you this new 47MP and 8K Micro Four Thirds sensor!

It surely looks like Sony is giving a lot of efforts to keep the Micro Four Thirds kicking and alive! They announced this new 47MP sensor (41MP in 4/3 mode) capable of recording 8K video.

I am pretty sure we will get 8K MFT mirrorless cameras long before 8K will be available for Full Frame. At the moment an 8K FF camera in a compact body would create a nuclear alike Chernobyl explosion :)

 

This is the first image of the new Olympus E-M5III

43rumors leaked the image of the new E-M5III that will be announced on October 17. The camera will have most of the E-M1X features for a fraction of the price. If that’s really the case I think it will sell well!

E-M5III rumor summary:
Announcement on October 17 (99% certain)
Same 20MP E-M1II sensor with 121 cross-type phase detection pixels
New processing engine
Lighter, more plasticky but still weather sealed body
Same BLS-50 battery of the PEN and E-M10 camera series (60% certain)

 

New rumors about the Olympus E-M5III, Sony A7sIII and Fuji X-PRO3

Three new camera rumors:

Exclusive: Fujifilm X-Pro3 Images Show Tone Curves and Clarity Adjustments (Fujirumors).
Sony A7sII successor records 4k120p and has a cooling vent? (SonyAlphaRumors.com).
E-M5III will be announced on October 17 and feature the “same” 20 MP sensor (43rumors.com).

Fuji officially annunces the development of the X-PRO3. Here are the images!

Today Fuji did announce the development of the new X-PRO3. Fujirumors reports:

Fujifilm says the announcement will be on October 23, with worldwide “Fujifest” events to try it out on October 24.
Along with the Fujifilm X-Pro3, they will introduce the a new Classic Negative film simulation
It will come in three colors, the classic black as well as a DURA black and DURA silver
It will be built out of titanium, which will make it 10 times tougher than steel against scratch, almost level of sapphire.

Fuji also announced that it will make a XF 50mm f/1.0 lens instead of the previously announced 33mm f/1.0 lens. This  will allow them to make the lens 35% smaller! Here you can see the new 50mm lens versus  the much bigger 33mm lens:

Here is the official presentation video:
