No Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH5 for Photokina
Multiple sources have now validated our opinion that the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH5 will not be arriving at Photokina, or IBC this September. The GH5 is a hotly anticipated release in the M4/3 worlds, and the high levels of anticipation have lead many to claim that either the Photokina or IBC shows next month would herald the arrival of DMC GH4 successor. Here at RDC however we have erred on the side of caution, viewing the lack of concrete information about the GH5 as an indicator that it’s arrival may not be as soon as many are hoping for.
The latest information relating the GH5 seems to confirm that it will not be announced next month, and in fact, may not be arriving until early 2017. It isn’t all bad news though because the same sources are also claiming that there will be GH5 related news at Photokina, perhaps in the shape of a demo unit.
