_In March 2019, Panasonic will release a system camera




with a full-frame sensor
Panasonic will release a system camera with a full frame sensor in March 2019. At least that is what makes the 43rumors website based on a source. On 25 September, prior to the Photokina exhibition, Panasonic would officially announce the camera.

According to the rumored website , a source has announced that the new full-frame system camera will receive a lens mount designed by Panasonic. The website 43rumors reports that this rumor is pretty reliable. No use would be made of the existing Leica SL mount; Panasonic works together more often with Leica for, for example, the release of lenses.

A switch from Panasonic to a system camera with a full frame sensor would be remarkable, because the brand, like Olympus, has been issuing system cameras and lenses for years for the micro four thirds system. The micro four thirds camera system now exists for ten years and the first camera for this system was the Panasonic Lumix G1 , which went on sale in November 2008.

The mft sensor is significantly smaller than a full frame sensor, so the lenses for this system are much smaller. The smaller mft sensor also has disadvantages: a more limited dynamic range and relatively poor performance in low-light conditions.

Recently, photos were published online from Canon’s mirrorless full-frame camera. The EOS R would get a 30-megapixel sensor and a new RF mount. Nikon also announced two new system cameras with full frame sensors a week ago.
