It’s not stunning that many anticipated a GH6 announcement on a day like right this moment. Improvement of the brand new Micro 4 Thirds flagship was first introduced again in Might together with the discharge of the GH5 Mark II, in order that they’ve had a superb six months of lead time to organize us all for an announcement. However it hasn’t appeared. The assertion above additionally doesn’t appear to recommend when it’d come, both. So, precisely when the GH6 might be introduced is unclear, though varied rumours now put it at being sooner or later throughout 2022.
Regardless of the frustration, although, it’s refreshing to listen to of an organization truly holding off on releasing one thing till it’s truly prepared. Too usually lately we see corporations releasing merchandise lengthy earlier than they’re prepared after which spend the following two years offering firmware replace so as to add (or repair) performance that ought to have been there from the start.
All I do know is that the GH6 had higher impress when it’s lastly introduced. I see folks in MFT teams and boards day by day holding off on their shopping for choices till they know what’s happening with the GH6.
