BBC News: Mirrorless cameras: Photography’s new decisive moment

“Nearly 200 years after the birth of photography, the art form is experiencing a technological revolution….

… on the eve of Photokina – the industry’s giant trade fair in Cologne – Panasonic has just unveiled a body that could prove the most disruptive of all….

… Panasonic, however, is teasing a model that promises to combine several cutting-edge features….

“Panasonic’s move into the full-frame mirrorless segment is particularly interesting because of its collaboration with Leica and Sigma – both companies with a strong photographic heritage,” Futursource analyst Arun Gill told the BBC.

“By adopting Leica’s L-Mount, Panasonic’s cameras will have an immediate advantage of being compatible with several existing high-quality lenses.”…”
