The Pansonic Lumix LX7 is a new 10.1MP point and shoot camera with a 3.8x optical zoom lens. The camera shoots RAW still images and 1080p video at up to 60 fps. The zoom lens is wide and bright. Zoom coverage is an equivalent of 24-90mm with an max aperture of f/1.4 to f/2.3 on the respective ends of the zoom.
A new Panasonic Micro Four Thirds lens spilled out onto the interweb this week ahead of its official unveiling. The Panasonic Lumix G Vario 45-150mm f/4-5.6 HD OIS lens should be along soon – with the HD emblem suggesting that this lens will be optimized for silent video operation like the classic HD 14-140mm f/4-5.8 lens.
Perhaps this is a replacement for the current 45-200mm f/4-5.6 OIS non-HD lens, or just a video-optimized version to complement the line-up?
