    Sony competitor to GH1 on the way?

    Found this on a rumour site, for what it's worth.

    SonyAlphaRumors has got an important information from one of our most trusted sources. Sony is ready to launch a new camera on November 18! The camera will have the new (4/3 ?) exmor sensor and Full HD video recording. With the camera Sony wants to compete against the Panasonic GH1.

    UPDATE: The only thing we know is that Sony will launch a direct GH1 competitor on mid November. This will be the first Sony camera with Video recording! We do not know if the camera will be the first model of a mirrorless system. We are working to get more infos!

    UPDATE2: Most of the mystery is given by the ď4/3″ sign. We donít know if it means that:
    1) Sony will become a strong competitor of the Panasonic GH1 camera (which has a 4/3 sensor)
    2) Sony will use a 4/3 sensor but with a proprietary mount
    3) Sony will join the MicroFourThirds system

    Option 1 is the more realistic answer.

    Keep following us in the next days.

    UPDATE: We downgraded the rumor from SR5 to SR4. We heard the source again and he still confirms the rumor. Anyway we thought we should only give SR5 value when we have a real proove (image or whatever).

    The more computer/electronic based cameras get, the better it will be to look
    at Sony, Panny etc.
    I just want a Pen with an iPod built in.

    Oh no...I was about to sell my A200 and all Sony-mount lenses I have because I now have the G1. I guess I'll wait for the official words from Sony before I do anything silly!
