Panasonic has announced that they will present new LUMIX GH series cameras at an online launch event. The event will be held on Tuesday, May 25, 2021, at 10:00am EDT. They claim that they are committed to further enhancing the G Series lineup and performance of conventional Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras and lenses to meet the continuous demands of creators who value the strong advantage that only MFT can offer.
So, what can we expect from this Panasonic online launch event on May 25, 2021? According to the Panasonic teaser, they are saying new LUMIX GH series cameras are coming, not only a single camera. So it is highly likely that we’ll see the Panasonic GH5 Mark II, Panasonic GH6 development announcement as well as some new lumix lenses on that day.
In addition, the product images, pricing info and detailed specs of the Panasonic GH5 Mark II already leaked online. The overall design of the camera looks similar to the Panasonic GH5S. The button layout, design, and controls are exactly the same. And the Panasonic GH5 Mark II body will be priced at $1,699 USD in the US, with a 12-60mm lens kit for $2,299. You can also see the Panasonic GH5 Mark II detailed specs here. What’s more, Panasonic will probably announce a new Lumix S 50mm f1.8 lens and a new zoom lens alongside the GH5 Mark II on May 25.
Speaking of the Panasonic GH6, the latest rumors suggest the new GH6 will NOT record 8K, but offer superb 4K video instead. I should be able to give you some additional GH6 details soon.
