Look, this started with a simple statement. It becomes exhausting to try and respond to every single comment or question from every person. You were not singled out. IMO, the responses were far more overboard than my initial statement of disappointment in the announcement. I am not the D&G guy, I have in fact dismissed it in many threads.Well the doom and gloom has been constant, one thing after another no matter how good news we get. This news imo was the best our system could get, that there will be a new 24MP sensor for both companies to use, and Panasonic will continue with M43 despite all the doom and gloom.
You're not the best person to say to favour debate, as you didn't even answer the two posts above, so I had to bring these points again when you suggested that stills focus is over for Panasonic.
Like one member earlier asked you, which camera companies do you see releasing statements about products which come maybe a year into the future? There is none. Your complaining about it makes no sense, and is doom and gloom to me.
All the manufacturers will also focus more in video as its a growing market. You can't get a stills only camera, or anything toward that end, just like you haven't thus far in the past when video came to ILC's long ago.
It's very obvious that GH6 is not a camera for you, but the next "G9" obviously will be if you can wait.
Like I have said earlier regarding fears of Panasonic ditching a ready made ILC system in M43, I don't see any sense in that for them. They have a full lens line up and only need to upgrade cameras in under 5 years time, however they see it best.
And again, you miss the point about product statements. It would be so easy for them to say something as simple as 'watch your inbox about future releases using the new sensor.' or something to that effect. I am not asking anyone to unveil something early, just let us know it's on your radar. Instead, they give us a firmware update. Why? What would be the point in making the G9 better if they plan to replace it in the near (12-18mos) future?
And one question, I did not hear them say a 24MP sensor, nor have I read it anywhere. It is entirely possible I missed it during the presentation as I was watching at work. I heard an 'improved sensor'. Did they in fact say 24MP?
