Well not citing your source just makes this a post that looks to try and steal the thunder of the FZ30. If it is using the Kodak sensor like the Olympus E-Volt then I am not excited at all.

There are sources that back up the FZ30.

Your inside scoopis what you say. Not fond of posts like this to be honest.

Of course, I could just ignore it and not say anything.

Panasonic and Olympus had a press release out in Jan about their joint project , so that Pana will have a digital SLR is not exactly news, I am just giving you some details.

Now, thinking caps on.

What feature do Olympus SLR's have that is unique to them ?

What do Panasonic digital compacts have that would be nice in the new SLR ?



BTW I don't understand the FZ30 reference.The FZ30 will be out in September in Japan and possibly USA, October elsewhere and I think it will be VERY popular.

My guess is the Pana DSLR will have automatic senor cleaning and in body Optical image stabilization, added to that the expertise that Oly have in the Zuiko lens line addded to Panas lens facility could well be a winner in a compact DSLR a bit like an enhanced Penrax *istDS
Sounds good if true

The issue with the oly 4/3rds sensors is that they are too noisy compared with the other dSLRs. I will only consider a pana dSLR if they have clean/useable high ISO. The autofocus on the oly dSLR was also pretty poor so that will need to be addressed.

Yes. The KonicaMinolta system has a moveable sensor instead of a moveable lens. But I don't think Panasonic SLRs will haveIS in the bodyas it would mean to develop a new IS system. I rather think there will be Panasonic(/Leica) lenses with IS.

Is that optical since it does not involve any glass movement only the sensor.

The stabiliser in the sensor is a KM design( and patent), therefore we will likely see it in the new Sony SLR not the Pana.

The Pana stabiliser is a module that sits in- between the front group(s)of lens elements and the rear one, down to 20mm at the moment, so I wonder if it could be used inside the small 4/3rds lenses ?
