FT5 from 43rumors

so looks like the rumor has been upgraded to FT5 which will more likely be true

If Sony can put out a decent RX100 III with EVF and bright lens I don't see why Panny can't

They could 'borrow' the 1" sensor from Sony (or downsize their MFT sensor)

Add their own 24-70mm bright lens (Pana is largest maker of aspherical lenses)

Include a small EVF a la LF1 with higher res

Keep the body small (they 've shown they can do it with LF1 and GM1)

and voila , a dire competitor to the RX100 III

Competition is good for the consumer

I'll wait for the announcement before making any  decision on an advanced pocketable P+S camera

Fuji and Nikon may announce something similar soon as well (and rumor of Olympus too)

Good times ahead

For now my LF1 will fill the needs till then ...

Cheers,
