Panasonic Full Frame mirrorless S cameras specs leaked. It uses the new Sony 5.6 milion dot EVF!

The full Panasonic S1-S1R cameras and S lens specs have been leaked over at I noticed within the specs that these cameras are likely to be the first to use the new Sony made 5.6 million dots EVF with 240 fps.

The full specs of that EVF can be read here on SAR. I am surprised to see Sony not being the first to use this stunning EVF…

Competition making their moves: Canon EOS-RP(?) and Panasonic S1-S1R

In February we will get new Full Frame mirrorless cameras from the competition:
The image on top shows the production ready S1 with the 24-105mm f/4.0 lens. This new Full Frame Mirrorless will be announced long the S1R and two more S lenses on Jan31-Feb1. Full specs can be read at
The one “special” thing the S1R can do is take 187 Megapixel High Resolution images in multi-shot mode.
CanonWatch got word about a new Canon announcement on Feb 14. There are rumors about a possible new “EOS-RP” camera. I have no idea what this camera is and what the name stands for…maybe they intended “EOS-RIP“? :)

(SR5) Sony will announce a new E-mount mirrorless “in the first half of 2019”

Today Sony registered a new camera code which is 99% likely to become the new RX0. But Nokishita added one more info. Sony will announce a new E-mount mirrorless camera “in the first half of 2019

From the info I gathered this is highly unlikely to be the new Sony A7sIII. Top candidate so far is the new High End APS-C camera which for now we love to name “A7000”. And if you still think a professional APS-C camera is just a phantasy please don’t forget that Sony confirmed it in this Dpreview interview:

APS-C cameras for professional use must exist.

But of course nothing is confirmed. I don’t think A7III and A7rIII will be replaced soon. If it’s not the A7sIII and not the A7000 I don’t know what it could be else…

To recap what we heard so far:
SR5: Sony RX0II to be announced within the next 2-3 months
SR5: New APS-C E-mount mirrorless camera coming within June
SR4: New E-mount lens announcement in February (probably 135mm f/1.8 GM and another lens).

(SR5) Sony registered a new camera model “WW151602”. Probably a new RX0 model coming soon!

Today Sony regsitered a new camera: It has the code “WW151602” and uses the “Sony NP-BJ1” battery. This battery is used by the RX0 camera and so it looks like we are getting a new RX0II model. Not exciting news at all for 99% of our readers.

(SR4) Next Sony press event within 3-4 weeks: New E-mount lenses coming?

We just got whispers about the next Sony press event that will happen within the next 3-4 weeks. The only 80% reliable rumor we got is that Sony will finally announce new E-mount lenses. 99% reliable is the rumor saying that we will NOT(!) get a new A7sIII any time soon.

Sony will have double major event in late February:

Starts on February 25. This show is usually used by Sony to announce new products. I give it an 90% chance we will get new products

2) CP+
Starts on February 28. Pretty sure the products announced at WPPI will be shown at CP+ too

And now to SR4-SR5 rumors of what to expect on those events:

SR5 (90% chance this is correct): NOOOOOO A7sIII on the events mentioned above
SR4 (70% chance this could be correct): New 135mm f/1.8 GM (we published the patent for this lens two weeks ago).
SR4 (70% chance this could be correct): New APS-C E-mount lens (no specs yet)
SR3 (50% chance the info is correct): New High End APS-C camera with EVF in the middle and A7-A9 styled body

More rumors:
– Possible surprise might be new RX1r. But I got nothing on these yet.
– I got info about a new 35mm f/1.8 G lens but I got no idea about the timing of this lens launch.
– 500 and 600mm tele GM lenses are on the roadmap and we foun patents of those lenses too.
– Tamron should launch a 70-200mm FE alike lens, Sigma should launch new lenses too.

Note: Sony has yet not registered any new camera in Asian agencies. Still, last year the A7III cameras was registered in Asian agencies 1 day before the announcement at the WPPI show.

The curious comparison: Sony A9 versus the soon to be announced Olympus E-M1X

Well we didn’t see that one coming: Olympus will seriously attempt to fight in the sports and wildlife market by launching a new $3,000 Micro Four Thirds camera named Olympus E-M1X. Full specs can be read on 43rumors. And today Apotelyt posted this specs ans size comparison:

I am curious to see if a small crop sensor camera can win over some of the sports and wildlife folks. This could be a market a professional A7000 could fit in don’t you think?
