New Panasonic 70-200mm images suggest a it has a constant f/2.8 aperture?

Digitalcameraworld spotted the lens at the SWPP show in London. They write:

From its size and 77mm front filter thread, it look almost certainly to be a 70-200mm f/2.8. You can also clearly see that the closest focusing distance of the lens is 0.92m (3.02 ft).

It’s likely Panasonic will announce the full specs within the next 1-2 weeks. Fingers crossed the lens has indeed an f/2.8 aperture. While the other zoom lens the 24-105mm lens will definitely be a f/4.0.

(L4) Leica SL2 will be in market in late 2019 only

We got some info about the new Leica SL2. From what we heard the camera is not really coming any time soon. Leica plans to have it on market by late 2019 only. No specs yet but of course you can expect a new much higher resolution sensor to be featured on the SL2.

(L5) Major Panasonic S1-S1R announcement will happen around January 30

We are now 99% certain that Panasonic will have a major S1-S1R related announcement on the days around January 30. This means we will likely get the full specs information and preorder pricing.

Stay tuned for more info to come!
