I Suggest That Amazon Get Into The Camera Rental Business.

This will be good for I in multiple ways — given that I am also an Amazon shareholder.

Yes, I have rented a Fuji X-T1 from “Lumoid” and a Nikon D500/Tamron 16-300mm lens from “LensRental“. Both rentals worked out great and I will not hesitate to rent again from either of them.

But renting from Amazon would be so much easier. They have all my details. They know me, I know them.

Plus, Amazon could offer some great ‘rent-to-buy’ options.

Yes, it will more or less drive quite a few existing rental companies out of business but, alas, that is what competition is all about. Some will, of course, survive by offering ‘better’ services — I guess.

Panasonic ‘LX200’, i.e., Successor To LX100, Now Called ‘LX15’ — But Not On Rumor List For Photokina 2015 Unveiling.

A Chinese site does have this Panasonic registration for a “LX15
— in Chinese.


Use link above to access Chinese original. This is a Google translation. Click to ENLARGE. Says it is a 20MP 4/3rd sensor. So looks like the anticipated LX200.

All rumors and conjecture as yet. So this can change. Interesting that the Panasonic ‘LX200‘ or ‘LX15’ is NOT included as a possibility in the September 19, 2016 announcement though much has been said about the LX15 in the last couple of weeks.

Why Panasonic would call it LX15 rather than say LX110, LX150 or LX200 is yet another Japanese mystery.

The 20MP four-thirds sensor definitely hints that it is a follow-up on the LX100.
