"Panasonic will announce an “unexpected” new Lumix camera in May!"

https://www.l-rumors.com/panasonic-will-announce-an-unexpected-new-lumix-camera-in-may/

"Finally I got some good news from a trusted source. He told me this:

One new Lumix camera will be announced in May
It will be a completely “new kind of 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?

Anyway stay tuned…I might be able to get some more details soon 😉"–Andreapazzo

I'd like a Z9/R3 style of camera. But it will be something boring like a Sony A7C competitor

The rumor description "Totally Unexpected" could mean anything ha ha. Or he already knows but wants to tease it out a bit more.

Yes. No details other than "surprising & unexpected" camera on May 7th, but he does seem somewhat excited about what it might be.

Many have expressed the desire and Leica has (discreetly) expressed interest in a Leica M mount camera with a EVF and/or ibis. Those features will be technically very difficult and expensive to be fitted within the current M body profile. Besides that, just think of the berserk bug fest that the new owners of such a EVF/ibis M model would have to endure.

A more technological achievable platform would be provided by this "unexpected" Lumix body offering a L-mount with a rangefinder profile. Think of it as the Panasonic prelude to that wished for Leica M EVF/ibis model that just needs a M to L mount adapter...with PDAF to boot.

Ihmemies2 would be bored but I would be excited.

Maybe they're resurrecting the 4/3's standard. No one would expect that.

I heard it's non-dual gain ASP-C sensors.

Special addition screw driven lenses with loads of focus shift and CA.

Come on, dig deeper so we can get to bottom of this before 7 May.

Pentax would probably take that as a compliment given how confused them seem in recent years.

Hmmm ... well ...

Panny previously said they would NOT be getting into the APS-C space. That would be a surprise if they went that route, after all ... something like a Leica CL, but with an M mount, so it could be a CM with EVF / IBIS. That would be "different" and "unexpected". . I reckon a CL2 (Panny named variant) in L mount (M via adapter) would suffice. Leica abandoned the format, maybe Panny is picking it up.

Oh, might as well make it infrared, while we're at it.


On a different vibe ... a square format FF with a sensor area of 33x33, and a waist level finder.


Stereoscopic / 3D with twin lenses for AR implementation.


Now, about those mushrooms I had for dinner.

True.

Maybe it's an S1R monochrome. The S1R's already a special order camera. Maybe they'll give people options.

Or it could be something built to compete with Sony's FX series.

Or maybe they cracked laser-optimized global shutter sensors and are about to make the 9III look like a joke.

I'm sure it's one of those.

The photog in me hopes for a compact FF fixed lens camera.

The videographer in me hopes for a FX3 rival.

The realist in me thinks it will be a slight tweaked version of an already released body—the S1R you mentioned is a smart guess.

And the experienced me says, how may hundreds of vague rumors have come and gone and it’s something quite inconsequential to me?

I do think they are leaning into video and that’s their real stake of a segment in the market.

Panasonic has a long history of introducing unexpected cameras, hence their low market share. Perhaps they should consider releasing something expected.

Maybe it will be an L mount body similar to a Q with an EVF and eye focus assist for manual focus lenses like the Zf

Well, the Lumix LX100 no longer being “current,” an LX100-like camera would not be “a successor to a current model.” I am not going to become excited about rumors, but I remember handling an LX100, and then becoming increasingly interested. By the time I was ready to spend money on such a camera, the LX100 series was no more, and the Leica version had similarly been discontinued. So, with neither optimism nor pessimism, I will wait, and see.

My current compact camera is the Nikon Coolpix A, Made in Japan, with a quite nice metal exterior, a capable 16MP APS-C sensor, and an excellent little 18.5mm lens, with an more-or-less 28mm angle of view. Its significant annoying shortcoming, for me, is that its focusing is “by wire,” and while it can be manually focused at a specific distance, if/when the camera goes to sleep, it “forgets” that distance. This category of camera has become much less significant, for me, since I added the Leica M system but, even so, if the new Lumix is anything like an LX100, I will be paying attention.
