I have told you many times that Panasonic will announce the development of the new Panasonic FF system camera on September 25. And only few specs will be unveiled. That’s probably why some of the rumors I got are conflicting or may not be right. Here are the latest info I got that has been NOT ve verifiable by my trusted sources:
25th September 2018 – Panasonic has announced the launch of LUMIX PRO, a hub for its LUMIX professional users that will provide an extensive support and service network while developing the needs of creative professionals. In recognition of the fact that photographers and videographers require more than just products within their everyday working life, the programme has been designed to ensure that they can continue to shoot whilst being assisted with a range of service and repair benefits and consistent global support.
Sigma CEO Yamaki did express his love for the MFT system when Dpreviw asked him if the MFT will “be reduced” now that Panasonic joined the L-mount:

First reported on L-rumors.com: Richard from Photogearnews interviewed Panasonic at Photokina:1) Quite obvisouly Panasonic confirmed their strong commitment with the MFT system “we will never give up on MFT” 2) More interestingly they said 70% of the system camera market is NOT Full Frame. 3) The reason why they launche a new FF system is to get a portion of this 30% Full Frame market
