Panasonic will announce a new “unprecedented” Lumix camera in May

Trusted sources confirmed that Panasonic will have a major announcement in May! The interesting tidbits is that this will be a completely “new kind of Lumix model”

The source has not yet provided any details about what this camera will be. But certainly do not expect a successor to a current model. We can only speculate that it could be a new fixed-lens camera, a Vlogger model, or perhaps a compact camera with an L FF mount. What do you wish for?

Fujirumors reports that the GFX100100sII will be announced around May 20. For now we don’t have specs yet…althaugh it’s easy to guess it will use the usual 102MP sensor.

FR also spilled out what’s coming in 2024:

  • Fuji X-T50 camera
  • Fuji XF16-50mm F2.8-4.8 lens (internal zoom, aperture ring and no OIS)

CR now believes R5II and R1 development will be announced around May 21-23

The Canon R5II and R1 rumors have been floating around for a very long time now. But we finally (might) got an idea when these will be announced. On May 21-23 Canon should announce:

  • R5II
  • R1 (development only)
  • 35mm f/1.4 L

As you know Canon actual registered two new cameras in China. Which means an announcement should happen within the next 3-4 months!

Canon just officially registered a new unreleased camera: We now have the R5II and R1 coming within 2-3 months?

On March 29 Canon officially registered a new yet to be released model in China. We now have in total two models that till have to be announced. Both do have dual band support which means those are mid to high end models.

The codes are:

  • DS126922 (registered on Feb 4)
  • DS126928 (registered on March 29)

It usually takes up to 3 months until such a registered model gets officially announced. Which meansthat we could expect a new announcement in May and another one in late June.
