In Germany I heard a Rumour about a 8 MP Camera from Panasonic as following to the FX7 in this May.

They seems be a Super-Cam - and Panasonic will bring out Infos in 4 weeks!

Can anyone confirm this (with Link?) or is that a Fake?

In bottom left of menu click on new arrivals. No pic, no specs, no details at all, call for "pirce". Lebanese mail order site:shock:

mmh, better than nothings, Thx Suze!

PS: It seems to be no-Fake. The FX8 should cost ca. 550 € and have manual Settings and a second Stabilisation-Chip.

I ask Panasonic-Germany and there one knew nothing about a new Digicam, so i think it was a Joke that comes a FX8.:evil:

I bet there is an FX8 or an FZ30 right around the corner, maybe an announcement in the next 21 days or so.

If you check Panasonic pricing at Circuit City, there is only a $30 price spread between the FZ5 ($499) and the FZ20($529)
To top it off, a lot of stores (i.e. onecall.com) are out of the FZ20...which has not been the case for several months prior.

My instincts tell me Panasonic is ready for an announcement that will be a more substantial step up from the FZ5. Maybe a 6 or 7MP version of the FZ20 with better video mode and an improved LCD and EVF???
