(FT5) Panasonic to announce a new MFT entry level camera by end of August - 43 Rumors So is this going to fill the massive void (sarcasm) left by the killing of the GF and GM lines? How much more "entry level" do they want to go compared to the G7 and GX85? I'm not saying those cameras are entry level, as they're very full-featured, but what could you do to further lower the price point? Older sensor/shutter mechanism? Crappier EVF? Fixed LCD? I really struggle to see where the market is for these cameras. P&S cameras got squeezed by the cell phone market, so they've "upgraded" to 1" sensors, which in turn has squeezed the entry-level ILC market. Plus, this isn't like CaNikon where you can walk in to any Walmart/Target/BestBuy/etc. and find a T6 Rebel, D3300, D5200. Panasonic (and Olympus for that matter), have essentially ZERO footprint outside of dedicated photography stores, and then they're not carried at every store. With no footprint in brick & mortar stores, coupled with zero marketing, you're not going to get someone who walks in to a photo store and says "I need an entry level camera, but I want one from a brand I never even knew made cameras. Have anything that fits that criteria?". No, instead they're going to buy a junky CaNikon, love it for the first couple months they own it before realizing that either A.) It's a piece of shit and I should have spent that extra couple hundred bucks on a better camera, or B.) It's relegated to it's cameras bag, shoved in the corner of some dark closet, and only comes out twice a year (once for their kid's birthday party, and at Christmas), and even then it's shot on auto mode, with the pop up flash firing away ruining every picture taken. I just don't see an "entry level" market for m43, and I'm surprised Panasonic hasn't realized that either given the poor sales of the GF and GM lines (which lead to their discontinuation in the first place).
