    Without a proper supoort this seems like one of those things that the connector will certainly break.

Panasonic today announced the long expected V-LOG update for the GH4. Pity they will charge you $99 for that! They also announced a new 25mm f/1.7 lens and two updated MFT lenses. Here are the links:

Panasonic Lumix G 25mm f/1.7 ASPH. Lens at BHphoto. Panasonic Store.
Panasonic Lumix G Vario 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II ASPH. MEGA O.I.S. Lens at BHphoto.
45-150mm MATTE version at BHphoto.
Panasonic V-Log L Function Activation Code for Lumix DMC-GH4 at BHphoto, Panasonic Store.

    all respect for panasonic lost,
    maybe next they will sell the camera without a shutter function, but luckily they will offer it for purchase on the camera's app store.
    fucking trash

The big October PhotoPlus show is getting closer and we are getting first rumors about the next bunch of new mirrorless cameras:

1) Sony A6xxx (Sony A6100?)
That camera is rumored to feature a brand new backlit RGBW sensor. The "White" pixels are added to increase the dynamic range. The Camera also records 4k at 60fps and has the fastest autofocus system of all mirrorless system cameras.

2) Panasonic GH4R
Panasonic is going to launch a new Panasonic GH4R camera which is basiccally a GH4 with V-LG added. This isn't good news because it means current GH4 cameras will not get the firmware update for free :(

No other rumored camera yet, not from Olympus, Samsung, Fuji, Nikon and Canon :(

    and Canon announces EOS-M3 :) so far behind - well I have the A6000 and yes in some cases AF is fast - but I must say that my Panasonic GX8 overall is faster - particularly in low light - seems Panasonic has the win in low light focusing ...

    We should just assume that the newest mirror-less camera body will have the fastest AF ever.

Canon changed his mind and at last launched the new EOS-M3 on the US market too! You can get it right now at Amazon, BHphoto and Adorama.

    Interesting. Question is, why now? - More than 6 months after it was first introduced. One or two reviewers have opined the M3 is still not the measure of the competition. Has Canon been persuaded by the M3's sales record in other regions (?) or...

A source just sent me that exciting news:

Coming soon: An interchangeable lens version of the Leica Q, with AF lenses. Due out in time for Photo Plus, in October.

This will not be the replacement to the M240 but rather a new system with new AF lenses, bulkier than the Q or M lines, with an EVF and lighter build despite the bulk. Sensor will be similar, if not the same, as the Q's sensor. Anticipate that it will come bundled with a 50 mm f/2 Summicron lens and retail around $8,000 USD. Build quality will be comparable to the M line and Q line...much of the Q's tech, including in body image stabilization, electronic shutter, and built in high res EVF, will be included. The camera may harken in design to Leicaflex bodies of years gone by...like a bulkier XT-1 with more simplified layout. This may end up being called the new "R" camera and may well take old R lenses via adapter, along with new AF R lenses. Not sure that it will take M lenses.

Anticipate that Leica will begin to simplify options, but canceling the T line and possibly the X-line. What will remain are the DLux, VLux, M, Q, S lines...

Wow!

Thanks to the source for sending this! Really sounds like Leica is going to challenge the Sony FE system!

If you consider the price of the Summicron is around $2,000 well this means you will pay around $6,000 for the camera body only. A Full Frame X-T1...well that looks great on paper!

    Who ever thought that Leica would come out with a reasonably priced interchangeable lens system has been smokin some bad weed

    This is a welcome addition to the photography world. Sony has yet to figure out how to design cameras and seems like only Fuji is churning out very functional systems. Until Fuji delivers a full frame camera, this new Leica AF system will be the m...

    sounds reasonable. more diverse product range means more business. I tested the Q briefly, it feels very much like a bigger and truly excellent version of the lx100, it felt very panasonic, it is an amazing very useable camera and probably an exce...
