    Wow! The first small Panny I actually like the design stylings of.

    No built-in VF tho :(

    ...actually no external VF option at all :(

    The top silver plate and flip screen look like a camera if a PEN and a NEX had babies, except a mode dial is found.

    I agree the design of this camera is definitely more appealing (to me, at least) than the GF3/GF5. I also like the flip up screen which seems much more useful than the articulated screen design of the G and GH series cameras which I just can't bring myself to like.

    That said, I'm not going to be among those to rush out and buy one. The lack of a hotshoe and EVF option makes it a little to "crippled" for me.

    Hmmm. Well ... I'm not the target audience for this, clearly, but it looks a lot nicer than it's predecessors. I hope this screen doesn't point the way for Panasonic ... I am a fan of a fully articulating screen - I enjoy being able to have it at whichever angle side to side or up and down which suits me ... great for "spy" shots in the street, btw. :cool:

    Hopefully the rumors (and only rumors, mind you) that they plan to consolidate the GF and GX lines with this camera are not true.

    Agreed. Now, if it had a built-in VF. Well...

    What lens is that? I don't recall the standard 14-42 kit having HD written in red on it.

    It's a new (apparently slightly smaller) 14-42 kit lens.

    Looks interesting. It makes me very curious to see what's cooking for the GX2!

    Agree with AlexH. This is an incremental improvement, and it seems to add features to the smallest Pany body. One can only hope for further improvements with higher range Pany bodies.

    Hmm.. no hot shoe? I guess another false rumor by 43rumors shot down. They claimed GF6 would be a combination of GX and GF lines. This looks like a bit less toy-like GF3/5. Looks pretty chunky actually. I wonder how big it is in reality.

    At first glance it looks pretty but it is a design mess.

    A couple days later their source said the GX line is not dying, although update seems months away.

    It still has a hump for the lens (although smaller than the GF5s hump) so I think it is still pretty small.
