Ten years ago, at this time, Panasonic was presenting the first camera of the mirrorless micro mirror system 4/3 at Photokina: the Lumix G1. During this time these types of cameras have gained popularity to the point of forcing Canon and Nikon to launch their own models with this philosophy. But it seems that for Panasonic the time has come to level up and present its first camera with Full Frame sensor.
It will be at the Photokina this year, but do not have too many illusions. It will probably be a model without any functionality. Come on, which is more a statement of intent than a moderately developed product.
Of the camera in question almost nothing has been filtered because as we have said there is no camera as such (and things will change from here to its launch). It is known that it will use a new mount, something logical since the size of the sensor is larger than that of the M4 / 3 and it seems that it will not be compatible with the Leica SL. Something that had been speculated given the close relationship between Panasonic and Leica.
It is thought that it could have a design similar to the GH5 whose body is of a sufficient size to integrate a Full Frame sensor, but we will not leave hats on September 25. Of course, the fully functional camera is waiting for sometime in 2019.
It only remains to be seen if Panasonic will be able to transfer all its knowledge to the superior format, where it will be able to obtain more detail and less noise at the cost of greater weight and price.
