Where did you hear that it might be a constant f/2.8?  That would be quite compelling, at least for people who are willing to sacrifice one stop at the wide end for the extra reach (thinking of XZ1/XZ-2 users here).

This came from a rumor a month ago.  Seems pretty accurate now.


This rumour about the compact camera with 4/3 is incorrect. The new compact will have the same size sensor as the XZ-2, it will however have a new lens, 28-300mm with a constant f2.8. Will  be announced in Oct

I also noticed a lens patent from a few months ago that shows a 4.4-67mm f2.4-f4.2 lens.  I am not sure if this is related to this announcement but it does look like we will be getting a fast lens.  This same link shows the patent for the next XZ-3 (6-24mm f1.4-f1.8).
